Dressing for an Interview when you have No 'Professional' Clothing
The complaint we get from many Youth Job Link clients is that they have no 'professional attire' for interviews. Meaning, they have no dress pants, skirts, heels or dress shoes. However, unless you are interviewing for an administration position that requires semi formal office attire, you may have articles of clothing that can be used for interviewing that is considered as 'professional'.

When interviewing for a Customer Service position in food services, retail or warehousing, these simple rules can be followed that will still count as professional:

1) When wearing jeans, wear dark blue or black. Not faded, light in colour or ripped. Dark coloured jeans tend to be more professional than bright colours. Not shorts or capris preferably. 
2) Wear a button down shirt or a t-shirt with a collar. No writing, brand names or monograms on the shirt. Preferably one that's a solid neutral colour such as black or white or subtle colours. 
3) Shoes should preferably be of a dark colour. Flats or runners can be worn, preferably not bright coloured so as to not draw unnecessary attention. Nothing that is multi-coloured or showing large brand names.
4) Jewellery should be basic and to a minimum. No large chunky necklaces or chains. 

Following these simple rules can make you look professional whilst still easy to find a typical wardrobe.
