Do you need to wear a dress, heels?  

Nope.  I wore pants to all my interviews and I now have exactly the job I
wanted.  Typical outfit:  dark slacks, decent blouse, relaxed-cut jacket. 
You don't want to be mistaken for either a saleswoman or a grad student.

One piece of advice: I have heard my elders speak disparagingly of people
who "look like they just cut the tags off."  Wear your interview clothes a
little befor you go so that you are sure you are comfortable in them!

Good luck.
