poorly or thoughtlessly dressed makes me think they don’t care enough to want the job OR that they will be careless when they get the job. if this is the best they can do now, how will they dress when they start working? a well dressed/smartly turned out candidate shows that they are eager for the job and care about how they present themselves to the world. i want someone like that to represent my city and my library.

‘Professional’ is far-reaching (ethnic dress) and doesn’t mandate a formal suit

365 Days Day 26 by Flickr user JohnThis anonymous interview is with a public librarian who has been a hiring manager and a member of a hiring or search committee. This librarian works at a library with 100-200 staff members in a Suburban area in the Northeastern US

How does what a candidate wears affect your hiring decision?

I am interviewing a professional and expect applicants to dress appropriately for a professional interview. I do not expect business casual or personally casual dress but ‘professional’ is far-reaching (ethnic dress) and doesn’t mandate a formal suit. Jewelry on or in the skin is fine but less is always more. I don’t want the clothes to overshadow the person or distract the interviewers; personality comes through no matter what the clothing.

What This Library Wears

An outfit with a coordinated blazer and trousers:

How does what a candidate wears affect your hiring decision?

Clothing meant to draw attention to the wearer implies narcissism. Narcissists are poor employees, poor coworkers and the worst possible supervisors. Dressing professionally, neatly and appropriately hints that one is eager to work and willing to cooperate with organizational norms. Such people usually do good work and work well with others.

I live in Wyoming. We rarely worry about what someone is wearing and it certainly doesn’t make or break a candidate.

Very little, but I suppose shorts and a t-shirt might show a lack of true interest in the position. I expect people to wear what they would most likely wear to work.

Can you share any stories about how a candidate nailed the proper interview outfit, especially if your organization does not expect suits?

If you’re applying for a job at Hot Topic or your local tattoo place – any of those would be acceptable; but they are not appropriate for a library

Beast of a Job Interview, after Walter Crane by Flickr user Mike LichtThis anonymous interview is with a public librarian who has been a hiring manager, a member of a hiring or search committee, and human resources. This librarian works at a library with 10-50 staff members in a  Rural area in the Midwestern US  

What Candidates Should Wear

Should the candidate wear a suit to the interview? 

√ Probably, yes (but it’s ok if the candidate wears something a little less formal)

An outfit with a coordinated blazer and trousers:

√ I do not know and/or care

Bare arms are inappropriate in an interview, even in the summer.

√ I don’t care

If a woman wears a skirt to an interview, should she also wear pantyhose?

√ Other: Don’t care

Women should wear make-up to an interview:

√ I don’t care, as long as it’s not over-the-top

Is there anything a candidate might wear that would cause them to be instantly out of the running? If you have any funny stories about horrifying interview outfits, we’d love to hear them.

I think as long as they are dressed professionally and appropriately, it really doesn’t matter. Especially since there aren’t any real librarian jobs left out there to be applying for.

Can you share any stories about how a candidate nailed the proper interview outfit, especially if your organization does not expect suits?

No – it’s never mattered to me how someone dresses, as long as they look like they took a minute to check their appearance before they left the house, and it’s appropriate to the job they’re applying for.

Do you expect different levels of formality of dress, depending on the position you’re hiring for?

√ Yes, the higher the position, the more formal I expect the candidate to dress

Which jewelry may candidates wear: (Please select all that are acceptable)

√ Single, simple necklace, bracelet, and/or ring
√ A few simple necklaces, bracelets, and/or rings
√ Earrings

Which hair colors are acceptable for candidates:

√ Natural colors (black, brown, red, blonde, gray)

The way a candidate dresses should:

√ I don’t really care how a candidate dresses

How does what a candidate wears affect your hiring decision?

I don’t think professionals (or people who wish to be taken seriously in a job interview) wear nose rings or other facial piercings, visible tattoos, large gauge ear jewelry, crazy hair colors, etc. If you’re applying for a job at Hot Topic or your local tattoo place – any of those would be acceptable; but they are not appropriate for a library (or most other jobs).

If it’s out of the ‘mainstream’ fashion, it’s hard to focus on the interviewee – you keep wondering how did they get those ear holes so big? Patrons seem more comfortable with ‘normal’ looking staff.
