The College Student’s Guide to Dressing for Job Interviews

Woman shaking hands with a man in an interview

Congrats – you made it! You officially graduated from college. Now it’s time to the land the job. Or maybe you’re still in school and trying to snag that internship.

Job interviews bring whole new questions of what to wear. After all, dressing for the world after college is very different from the campus scene. And we can all agree that those rip and repair jeans you’ve been rocking throughout the semester won’t score you any points with the hiring manager.

Never fear – Burlington has all the looks you need to feel confident and nail that interview…at a fraction of the price! And Burlington’s summer interns will show you how. Each year, college students from across the country take part in our nationally recognized corporate internship program. We challenged each of them to come up with an amazing interview outfit. Check out their looks below or tune in now.
