I have an interview tomorrow for a special education teaching position at the school I currently work at (I’m a teaching assistant now). Do I need to wear a suit? I feel odd b/c I don’t wear one to work, ever. I thought about wearing black pants and a blouse, and I could throw on a black suit jacket right before the interview. Or, can I just get away with black pants and a blouse?

SUIT. Definitely. It’s the most efficient way to show them that you are serious about the job.

Darling, PLEASE wear a suit! I thought this before I even opened the thread. ALWAYS wear a suit!

@ProfessorGirl: Thanks. 🙂 That’s what I planned to do but then had others telling me pants and a blouse were fine. I just don’t want everyone knowing I’m interviewing, even though word gets around and I’m sure more people know than I realize. 🙁

Seeing as how you already work there, you are being interviewed by your already boss. Boss already knows how you dress everyday. Hopefully classy enough for boss to keep you. It wouldn’t hurt to wear the jacket tho. I think what you say is more important. Let boss know how great her school is and how you hope to add to the wonderful things happening there.

I was only a permanent sub years ago when the office buzzed my classroom to tell me to go straight to the board of ed office after school. They did not tell me what for, and I get there to find out that I am meeting with the superintendant who told me I finally had a permanent position! I had on black pants and a blue blouse, but I felt horrible not having on a nice suit.
