Wear what you normally wear to work, but dress it up a bit more. Nicer shoes, nicer shirt, the fancy jeans, etc.

I’ve got a wide-leg black jumpsuit that I pair with wedge booties — it’s professional, but not too conservative and TOO casual. Plus I’m comfortable. Make sure you’re comfortable and best of luck!!

A long dress or midi skirt would also work. If the company is known for being creative, you could also wear something colorful (I did for my interview with my current company)

I’m early 30s so probably more old school, but I wouldn’t wear jeans to an interview. Black midi shift dress with black boots is my go to. Blazer and pencil skirt when I’m feeling fancier.

Suit, no tie. Pocket square to dress it up.

Velvet sweatsuit.

Hot dog suit.

Been severely struggling with depression and anxiety lately. Obviously this job is one big reason why.

This week he sat me down and told me he is worried about my mental health causing me to be a “liability” to the firm. I can’t stop thinking about this and don’t know how to turn it around.
