Interviewing for an Account Director role in NYC. What’s the outfit protocol for women? Are dark jeans in good taste, or should I put on a dress?

Always dress up. Even if the company is relaxed. Wear jeans after you start there... better to be over dressed than under dressed.

Agree. I’m an Account Director in NYC. :) Dress with booties or something. Maybe a blazer over it. No suits but no jeans

Depends on the agency. Is it creative owned? Or account led. At a place like BFG for instance wear the jeans and a nice blazer. Look sharp but cool. Place like grey? Suit baby

If you're uncertain, don't risk it and add to your anxiety while interviewing. Wear something that you're comfortable and confident in instead. Which doesn't have to be a dress either. Good luck at the interview!!
