Usually you will be given a dress code when you get hired as an intern for a large company such as business professional; this means you can work with different variations of a suit. For example, a pant suit- with a blazer, slacks, pumps, and a blouse. Another variation would be a pencil skirt, blazer, button down collared shirt, and pumps. Although the clothing options don’t seem as exciting as they may for other internships there are ways to spice things up just a little. Try different blouses into the mix, floral patterns, solid colors, etc. are all acceptable when worn under a blazer. Also, don’t forget your accessories! Let us know if you’re a business intern!
