    The Color of Employment

     Does color matter when you are going on a job interview?

    I knew that looking professional or appropriate for the job is important but I never gave much thought to what colors might be more alluring to an employer. I can see a brassy, outlandish mix looking less professional but which color is best? Black, blue, white?

    Have you had colors make any difference for you?

    AOL thinks it may matter, check it out.

    I can well imagine why blue is selected as choice. It would likely be my preference if going job-hunting. AM

    My goodness, I am so relieved that this thread is about *clothing* colors. I was afraid we were going to hear a depressing story about someone who suspected having been turned down for a job because of skin color.

    I bought kind of a different color blue suit and a slightly metalic shell, and got the job six months ago.  I wanted to look kind of trendy due to my age and experience, I wanted to say that I was up to date.  I was a little older and didn't have much experience in this field. It worked for me!  I went to a more expensive department store and had someone help me find one.
