Cant seem to find any information on this on here already so thought I would start a new forum, as I have no clue what to wear to a Veterinary Interview? If anyone could help with what they and others were wearing that would be great. And how formal it has to be as well?

Probably just something quite smart:

-Black/grey trousers
-shirt/blouse (any colour)
-smart shoes (probably black flats/pumps or black heels
-cardigan (if its cold)

Can't imagine you'd go wrong wearing this!

I'm assuming you are talking about an entrance interview at vet school?
I've seen hoards of students around the faculty over the years who have come for an interview. It always amazes me as to how untidy they are! I've seen jeans, trainers, hoodies to mention just a few......
I would advise on dressing very smartly. First impressions count for a lot, and the interviewer may think that the way you dress reflects your outlook on your approach to life/your studies. A smart look gives you a professional image and the interview could be a make or break situation for your career.

If you are going to a vet placement/job interview then the situation is different as you may be expected to do things, so dressing for practical work is best.

Good luck, hope you get in x

Suit/business attire if you want to come across as professional and committed. Plus it shows that you respect your interviewers.

You've got to look smart - grey trousers, a plain white blouse and a pastel coloured cardigan would be fine but Hawaiian shirts are definitely out of the question.

i wore smart trousers, pumps, a blazer and then a less smart tshirt underneath in an exciting colour because i didnt want to blend in too much!!! but its all about what makes you feel comfortable (up to a point obviously) theres no point dressing in a full suit if you feel ridiculous!!

I am going down the full skirt suit route because at least then I can't worry that I will be rejected for being scruffy. (having said this its a black suit ans have 3 black and white dogs by the time I leave house I will be coated in dog hairs)

Be smart! Its a professional career, therefore you need to look professional. At my interview day there were people in jeans and trainers, they really did stick out like a sore thumb. Don't think in a full suit you'll be over dress either, many people were wearing them. I wore smart grey trousers, black shoes, black shirt and a cardigan.

I wore smart grey/black trousers, a white shirt with a sweater-y thing over it and flat, black shoes. I felt comfortable in it and didn't look over/under dressed, I don't think. I saw quite a lot of people where boots, which I thought looked a bit odd and made a lot of noise! It's always better to be over- than under-dressed.

i wore grey trousers, a pink and white striped shirt and a black waistcoat.

its better to go too smart than too casual, there were plenty of people wearing full suits.
