Can I wear a different colored blazer with black pants for an MBA interview or should I stick to a one color suit?

What color is the blazer? I interviewed during the open period and they said business casual was the dress so you’re probably OK but want to trend overly formal rather than not formal enough. (I wore a suit, all the men were in suits, women a mix of suits, dresses w blazer, or different color blazer/pants so you’re probably fine)

like

What is the city and setting?

If you have a suit wear that. If you don’t I wouldn’t go out and buy it. Would just do as you’re suggesting

It's at Fuqua in Durham

I think students do their interviews

Was thinking black pants, white blazer, pink and white blouse

I personally would not so do white blazer. If you own a suit I’d do that with the white and pink blouse. If no suit, do you own a dark blazer? (Grey/black/navy)? I would do a grey dress with black blazer (or Vice Versa)

Hi all, 👋

I was recently laid off due to being in web3 but the market tanked and screwed me. My background is aerospace quality engineering and digital transformation / product management. 4.0 MBA from ERAU.

It’s been almost 2 months now.. and it’s starting to really break me down mentally. I feel like I’m just not having much luck since my credentials are solid I feel. I have a second job interview with fidelity and currently waiting to hear back from AWS.

Anyone able to refer?

Hi all! I recently received an internship offer doing data science/statistics with the Peace Corps. I’m extremely interested in the applications of data science and statistics within the public policy and research sects and this would be a good professional opportunity for me. However, I am quite aware of how problematic the Peace Corps is (i.e. white saviorism). Is it better to gain professional experience in a place I don’t support or reject the offer? I’ve struggled with landing other offers.
