What should I wear to my hospital interview?

Choosing a Hospital Interview Wardrobe

Whether you wear scrubs or a suit to work, candidates for hospital jobs often wonder “what should I wear to my interview?” Since making a good first impression can help secure a job offer, it's important to choose wardrobe wisely. Read on to learn tips for choosing the perfect interview outfit.

Err on the side of being conservative. If you ask any recruiter, they will tell you: it's better to be overdressed then underdressed. So, if you're not sure what to wear, dust off that old suit (or even better, splurge on a new one), and you'll be in good shape.

Take advantage of your inside contacts. Your best resource in finding out what's interview appropriate, is asking a current employee. If you know someone who works for the hiring company, ask about the manager's style. Are they casual or more formal? Finding this out ahead of time will help you make the right wardrobe decisions.

If you haven't already, partner with a staffing firm. A company that specializes in filling hospital jobs is your best resource. Staffing companies know exactly what the employer's expectations are for a candidate's wardrobe.
