Ok. We had this discussion a little bit on another thread. But I want to ask again, for a more definitive answer. Is it ESSENTIAL to wear a suit for interviews? How much of a factor is the suit? If I were to interview in a very nice dress or a skirt and blouse, would that be so bad? I just don't want to go through the hassle of finding a suit to fit and then getting it altered so that it actually fits well if its not that important (not to mention the cost). I'm very small (five foot tall, just over 100 pounds) so the suit would most likely have to come from a specialty type store or else be heavily altered. So anyways. People who have interviewed, people who have conducted interviews, how important is the suit? Ellen A.
