Internship Interview Attire | OOTD

8 July 2016

My Outfit:
Blouse - Zara
Jeans - Topshop
Bag - Colette
Shoes - Famous Footwear

I recently managed to get myself an interview for a communication internship at an amazing Brisbane PR & Communications company, which was both incredibly exciting and also very daunting. I wanted to make the best impression possible, and while that meant I had put a bit of pressure on myself to do well, thankfully it paid off and I scored the internship position!

Today I want to focus on the outfit I chose to wear to my interview. Since PR is a more creative business field, I decided to go with a smart casual look. I paired my go-to pair of high-waisted black Jamie Jeans from Topshop with this gorgeous new blouse I picked up recently from Zara. I love blouses (I have a bit of a collection going on to be honest), but this one really stood out. Not only is it the first 't-shirt sleeve length' blouse I've got, but it's also got a bit of a flare to it at the hem along with a double layer at the bottom of the front (kind of like an understated and minimal nod to the frill/peplum style that's been reappearing lately).

I opted for some simple black heels for my interview, and of course I took my black handbag from Colette which I take with me pretty much everywhere.

I think wearing something smart that suits the environment you're looking to work in, and that is comfortable, flattering and makes you feel confident, is seriously important when it comes to ace-ing a job interview (even if it's an unpaid internship - it's still a job, and confidence is essential)!

I'll be writing a blog post shortly on how to get an internship in PR with some tips and tricks that I found useful, as well as a video. I'll include the links to those here when they're up, otherwise just keep checking back on my blog and channel!
