  • Proper Internship Dress

    I'm a high school student in a magnet-type program at my high school. One of the program requirements is to have an internship between junior and senior year. My school arranged for me to have an internship with my city's police department. I'm assigned to work in the department's academy, but I have no idea what I will be doing. I was planning on wearing a suit and tie until told otherwise. Does this sound OK, or am I overdoing it?

    Better to overdress than underdress.....first impressions are everything....

    I would suggest wearing the suit then asking whomever your POC is what they want you to wear the next day and go from there.....

    Have fun.....

      Yeah, I got to agree with Bearcat 357 on this one. Overdress at first. I would go all out with the suit and tie. You will quickly learn once you have been there a couple of days what exactly is acceptable.

        Definately agree with both of you, overdressing is the best thing possible in this position as you don't want to rub shoulders the wrong way...good luck with your internship!
