I have a job interview on Friday for a "Support Worker" position. The job is 1 day per week, counseling young, pregnant girls and young women with babies.

I was told to dress as though I was going to an in-home session, rather than a formal interview.

I am kind of stumped!

What would you wear? Jeans?

Semi casual pants (like khakis) and a semi dressy top or sweater?

Thats the type of stuff AJ therapists and head start teacher usually wear to the house.

Like kara said.

Probably khakis and either a sweater or a nice looking button down blouse.

No jeans.

I'd wear kahkis or slacks with a nice top.

I would wear a casual dress that you can dress up with a cardigan and low heels.
Crap, it's probably already cold there, huh?

Well if it's cold, I'd wear gray pants and a nice, dark button down shirt, and low heels.

I would wear dress pants or a skirt with a nice shirt. It's far better to over dressed than under dressed.

Well, I just went through my clothes and I am very depressed by how few options I have.

So here are my options (please dont mind what a mess I am- I am sick right now and haven't gotten dressed in 3 days).

Outfit 1: (I also have this sweater in blue, green and pink)

Outfit 2:

Outfit 3:

Outfit 4:

Outfit 5:

I am kind of leaning towards outfit 5. But the thing is that is probably what I would wear to a formal interview too (given the options I have). Urgh. I feel so bad about myself after looking at these photos, so happy I am on weight watchers again, I just can't lose the weight fast enough!

I would pick 3, 4, or 5 for the interview. 1 and 2 would be fine after you get the job!

Outfit #3 is my favourite. It's a good balance for business casual yet it's inviting and warm. You look approachable and friendly.

#4 and #5 get my vote. Maybe you should have made a poll with this thread to tally your results for you
