You’ll typically want to go for a closed-toe shoe, especially for an interview or the career fair.  Rule #2:  Low to Moderate Heel.  Heels look professional and confident, but keep them that way.  NEVER wear platforms or stilettos.  Rule #3:  Heels Aren’t for Everyone.  If you can’t walk in heels, don’t wear them!  Be practical with your shoe choices.  It’s tough to appear professional when you’re uncomfortable.  Rule #4:  Neutral Colors.  Neutrals like black, brown, or tan are best.  Other colors are okay when kept to a simple shoe style.  Rule #5:  Shoes to Avoid.  NEVER wear flip flops, athletic shoes, clogs or “eskimo” boots to work or an interview.  Rule #6:  Occasional Sandals.
