How should I dress for a social worker interview?


I am interviewing for a social worker position with a child-care agency. Does anyone who works in the social work/child care field have suggestions on attire? Please and thank you.

    That was my exact thought! I didn't want them to think I was underdressed for the interview, but I also didn't want to come across as someone who wouldn't be culturally sensitive. Decided on black skirt, colorful floral top and a blue jacket :)

    Okay makes sense - I wasn't sure if a suit would be too overkill or not. I ended up finding an outfit I'm happy with and it passed the 2nd and 3rd opinion test :) -- Black pencil skirt, floral top and a cropped blue jacket.

    Makes sense. I actually ran a career dressing service for college students for a year, so I'm pretty confident on most interview dos/donts, but wasn't sure on industry specifics! This definitely gives me some better ideas :)
