"For those women who are still convinced that pants are acceptable interview attire, listen to the worse of one career counselor from a prestigious New England college:
I had a student who told me that since she knew women in her industry often wore pants to work, she was going to wear pants to her interviews. Almost every recruiter commented that her pants were ‘too casual’ and even referred to her as ‘the one with the pants.’ “
Surprisingly, it was published in 2010 and not 1950. Ridiculous. And for the record, I’ve worn pants to every job interview I’ve ever had, and I’ve been hired quite a few times, thanks.

When girls succeed, so does society.”
