Once upon a time, almost everyone wore business suits to job interviews.
If you watch old television shows and movies from the 1950s, men wore suits and ties and women wore nice dresses pretty much everywhere, says Andy Teach, author of From Graduation to Corporation, and host of the YouTube channel FromGradToCorp. However, over the years, our society has become less conservative when it comes to dress code. Certain industries still require dressing conservatively but others have a more collegiate atmosphere and its not unusual to find employees wearing shorts, T-shirts, and flip-flops to work. You probably dont need to wear a suit and tie to a job interview at a laid back company, but that doesnt mean you should dress too casually, either.
