I was hired in February for an ops job. I wore to my interview a conservative suit, heavy starched white shirt, conservative tie, nice watch (no other jewelry even though I wear an earring everday to work), nicely trimmed beard (you may not want to so as to avoid the question of shaving it), and black dress shoes with a matching belt & silver buckle. It was cold out that day, so when I walked in to the interview and saw the interviewers wearing slacks and casual shirts, I took off my jacket (after asking of course) and made a comment about how I was glad to be out of the full monkey suit. That's how I dressed down on the fly.
I got the job, but not because of the clothes. I got it because of me. The clothes just allowed the me to start out on a level playing field.
scaife, does this mean I get a nickel from you?
