This Woman Was Sent Home During A Job Interview For Not Dressing 'Conservatively' Enough


Job interviews can be really stressful. I don't know about you, but any interview I ever did well on I absolutely obsessed over the tiniest details. I made sure my suit was perfect, that my hair was was on point, which meant combing it (which is rare for me, OK?). I try and rehearse all of the questions they're going to give me and go over them on my drive over there. Everyone feels the pressure for interviews, and for women it can be especially tough, because there are so many gender norms and societal expectations of what women should wear and how women should present themselves.
