How should you dress for a job interview? In this recovering economy, many people are concerned with making the right first impression. One woman is fighting back against a company that refused to hire her based on how she was dressed.

Elizabeth Bentivegna is a student at Oberlin College, and recently she applied for a summer internship at On Shift, a software company. After being late to the interview and arriving with a run down her stocking, Bentivegna was not contacted by the company for a follow-up, according to The Daily Dot.

When she asked why she didn't hear from them, the company's reasoning was that even though she had impressive technical skills and a great personality, she looked like she "was about to go clubbing than to an interview." 

Bentivegna believed her attire was pretty conservative and thinks that the "all-male" environment of the company probably influenced their decision.


What do you think? Do you think she was treated appropriately by the company or was Bentivegna in the wrong? Answer our poll below!
