    Default Job interview

    There is a very real chance that my contact at work won't be renewed (grrr). I have been prowling for jobs and have an interview with the recruitment agency next week. This is a group interview. I will have to go work after the interview so I'm wondering if it would be a bad look to wear my work uniform (very corporate and smart)? Does it show that I am not only employed and employable and can present well? Or is it just a bad idea?

    There is a chance that my contact will be renewed so it could all be for nothing. But that is a whole other thread.

    Could I maybe swing a brooch over my logo on my uniform? I just don't have much corporate type clothing anymore since having a uniform.

    I personally wouldn't. Think of it this way, if your contract is not renewed then you will need to buy more corporate attire. I would go for a neat sweater and scarf, something you can grab from target ect for cheap but doesn't look cheap.

    Can you wear a blazer over your shirt which doesn't have a logo?

    Good luck for the interview!

    Is it an interview for a specific job? Or a meet and greet sort of thing so they know who they're recommending?

    If it's the latter I would go in my work uniform and just say my contract is ending.

    Good luck btw :-)

    I am going for a specific job but there might be others there for other roles that they are recruiting for.
