For most people, summer is the time to sit back and unwind (yes, I just quoted a Will Smith song). But recent college grads don’t have that luxury, at least the ones that want to get a job. For months leading up to graduation, seniors get asked from everyone and anyone “What will you be doing next year?!” It’s crazy annoying because most jobs want to hire right away, meaning you can’t look months, or even weeks, in advance. So, once the diplomas are handed out in May, thousands of young adults are finally ready to start the job search.

As someone who recently went through the process, I know how tough it is, and I want to help as much as possible. I could give you resume tips or questions to ask in an interview, but you’re probably on this site because you like shopping. So since that is our expertise, we’re here to tell you what young professionals wore to the interviews that got them the job. And we’re not just talking fashion or editorial positions, we asked people in the beauty, food, financial services, marketing, education and sales industries as well. While some of them advised to go with the standard blazer and pencil skirt, others mentioned that it’s important to have one item of your outfit that stands out, and you might be surprised to hear that that piece of advice didn’t just come from the fashion girl. Click the slideshow to read what they wore and shop similar items.
