Asked by Mike on March 1, 2017

I'm an intern and it's my second week on the job. There is a jeans casual day this Friday - should I still dress in my formal business attire given I'm just an intern. Thanks!

Hello and congratulations on starting a new internship! If the company culture is to wear jeans on Fridays, I would think it is safe to follow your colleagues. However, I would also recommend asking either your supervisor or another member of your team. It is always good to be on the safe side and double check with someone who has been there a little longer than you.

Hey there!
This is a great question and one I asked myself when I was an intern. I think it would be more than acceptable for you to partake in jeans day as long as your schedule permits; meaning, if you don't have any important meetings or presentations that day.
