Creative ladies, what do you wear to an interview with the higher up and account peeps? Are jeans okay if you dress it up with boots and a blouse?

It seriously doesn’t matter. Just look confident and like you don’t give a damn what others think about how you look.

Wear what makes you feel confident. You’ll blow the interview if you are self-conscious.

A) dress how you feel comfortable. No one should be judged on their appearance. B) unpopular account person opinion: don’t wear jeans to an interview. I know account people who find this unacceptable and immediately give a no for anyone wearing jeans (even for creatives). I want to be able to picture how you’ll present yourself to meet clients. Some clients do have conservative dress codes and we have to meet them where they are. I’m sure you are very stylish, but if you wear jeans to the interview, I am going to assume that this outfit is your peak of professional dress and that I should prepare myself to be mortified when you wear shorts and a tank top to a client presentation (I’ve been burned before, ok????) This probably makes me sound like I’m 70 years old and Amish but I swear I’m not. Seriously though, good luck!

I think whether or not it matters is subjective, and when it comes to an interview, I’d rather be safe than sorry. It doesn’t hurt to buy one or two nice interview outfits to keep on hand. Whether you agree with it not, the person interviewing you might. You want to risk losing a job you could love over that?

I look at pics of company events on the agency’s LinkedIn and social accounts to get a vibe for how people dress.

I am kinda seeing someone. We are almost pretty much mutually exclusive. I feel like i need a lot more words of affirmation to feel secure. But i dont want to come across as needy or clingy. I suffer from not being able to love myself and go to therapy. Anyone got any suggestions?
