Questionable Interview or Workplace Costume

Just useful tip, it is a good strategy to prepare for a job interview by studying the potential employer, to learn what questions to ask and what not to ask, and to dress appropriately for the job interview.

For business and academic settings, this usually calls for a tailored business suit.  Dress conservatively; try to convey an aura of quiet competence and reliability.  Above all, try to look mousey and no trouble potential.  Many men are intimidated by take-charge women, who they perceive as bossy.  Instead, in choosing your ensemble, think of what kind of image the employer wishes to convey.  As a new hire, you are expected to contribute to the planned impression management of the company, its desired image.

However, certain types of settings might call for more ostentation.  Perhaps a position as a server in a breastaurant or as a receptionist for a with-it Silicon Valley company.  And occasionally this might work when applying for a realtor's position, if you specialize in renting apartments to fraternity guys.

Finally, this sort of interview dress might be effective in seeking employment with a civil engineering firm.  They tend naturally to gravitate towards problems involving forces and stresses.

I never did like suits. It always felt like I was putting on a clown costume.

Congrats on 500. Keep them coming.
