As a professional woman who does well during the interview process I can say with confidence that they are ok, as long as they are tasteful and conservative. No stilettos please. It does not matter how tall you are.

Best Answer

would wedges work actually? I can kill myself in heels

I don't think you should worry about being too tall or anything like that... I know that a lot of professional interviewers would probably cringe at that, but honestly, how happy do you think you would be working for someone who determined your hiring ba<x>sed on the fact they were taller than you?<br />
<br />
Having said that tasteful is key, always look professional and always, always always make sure you are the best dressed person in the room... overly best dressed if need be... While the height might not be a factor, looking like you put some effort into it and are actually trying to get the job is key when dressing.<br />
<br />
I once worked for a guy who interviewed a contract worker that had worked under him for about two years... he really thought the world of the guy... he came in for the interview wearing the clothes that he would always wear to work, which at this place included jeans and tennis shoes... needless to say my boss was so disappointed that he made no effort that he didn't even consider him... didn't feel he took the opportunity seriously... just a side note :-)

I think it's ok, you should look feminine i think but it shouldnt be too high :)

Best Answer

i totally think it makes a girl look sophisticated and elegant when she wears them to an interview and i dont think if youre tall it matters just make sure they dont like hooker heels because that can always give off a bad impression i always wear black pumps when i have an interview :)

Best Answer

Obviously how you dress depends on the type of job (you wouldn't want to wear heels for a job as a maintenance mechanicm for instance) but having said that:for a professional-type job, bmcinnis is right on the money.

Best Answer

get them on and knock them dead!

Best Answer

I think you SHOULD wear heels over flats.

Best Answer

I'm pretty sure it is expected! But I would advice to go with close toed heels -it is much more professional.

Best Answer

It depends on the job.<br />
If I ran a ******** bar, I'd most likely want to see how you handle yourself in heels.<br />
<br />
You didn't say what 'kind' of job your interviewing for.<br />
Have you been there before, and seen what others are wearing?<br />
You don't need to wear a high heel to an interview for some jobs (fast food, daycare, etc.).<br />
When I interviewed, shoes (nor height), weren't my biggest concern regarding their attire.<br />
I've had some ladies come in, with cut outs all over their tight fitting dress, they looked like they were dressed to go out clubbing, not sell gifts.<br />
(I managed a store, in a mall)<br />
Add to that, don't bring someone with you, to the interview.<br />
I can't believe how many young girls brought daddy in with them to interview....<br />
<br />
I hope you do well!!!!<br />

Heels are fine.

Best Answer

I'm an employer and own an enterprise business. I make the effort to interviews everybody and I think heels add class to the applicant. It adds a professional look even if your tall. I'm 6ft 3 and had an applicant which wore 6inch heels and she looked already about 6ft
