What to Wear on the Job

Hate the idea of wearing a suit? The good news is you've picked the right career path then. Unless you're headed for a small handful of labels you likely will rarely touch one in the music industry. This good news can present a few problems though. For any other student it is pretty easy to know what to wear to an interview or on the job, usually a conservative suit. But what should you wear if your dream job is in music?

On most jobs, you will dress very casually. Most companies' dress codes have very few rules, and any that do exist are usually something along the lines of look put together and don't wear anything offensive or too showy. A typical work outfit will likely include sneakers, sandals or slightly dressier shoes paired with jeans and a reasonably nice shirt or band t-shirt. You should, of course, dress up a bit more on the first day to make a good impression. 

So what does this mean for the interview? Well, I'll save that for another post.
