Keep it simple. Wear the white blouse with a pair of black trousers and heels. If you have a neutral coloured blazer that would be a good thing to wear as well. Keep make-up natural and accessorize with a nice bag and maybe some kind of hair accessory or a pair of earrings. Going for a classic simple look will help you because in a place like a pharmacy they’re going to judge you on whether you’re presentable from a business point of view or not. It’s not like an interview for a clothing shop where they want to see your style.
My main tips would be to avoid denim, leather (apart from bag and shoes) or anything casual (unless its something that can be dressed up or down). Those are the kind of things that most interviewers (apart from those in fashion stores) frown upon and judge.
Don’t wear higher than a 3 inch heel. Scientists/Doctors tend to be more relaxed when it comes to shoes. Flats are welcome. Also, my adviser told me this when I was in Physician Assistant classes, wear glasses if you have them. Don’t go out and buy glasses but if you have them already you should wear them because many people subconsciously associate being more intelligent with wearing glasses and many people in labs and hospitals tend to wear them.posted over 4 years ago
