What i meant was that i wouldn't take that kind of job that required a uniform or daily suit and tie. This did come up when i finished my masters in accounting; i went for the more casual state jobs. I was hesitant about the badge at first, but it was concealed in a little fold-up wallet thingy.

Yes, Merchant Marine; i think that is what my maternal Grandfather was doing when the ship he was on exploded. I never met him, but i heard he looked sharp in his seafaring garb.

If the applicant comes in wearing khakis and a nice shirt, I'm okay with that, too. I would not hire or not hire someone based on their clothes (unless they come in wearing dirty sneakers and a Nike logo shirt or something like that). I think dressing nicely for an interview and having proper manners at a business meal is showing respect. Just my humble opinion.
I love the guys that can't understand why they can't get an "office job" and they have ink all over their face with implants that make it look like they have horns. Big holes in their ears and have teeth filed down to fangs. I don't understand why people don't take them serious.

I agree here. I guess I use the term "suit" loosely. I really don't know the difference between a blazer, a suit, a sport coat, etc. I meant a 'jacket' of some sort, shirt, tie, nice pants. I, too, would be very uncomfortable dressing up every day. Heck, I'm uncomfortable dressing up ever. I'm not really very girly girl when it comes to clothes.

Back when I owned all the Ameritech Cellular stores from Indianapolis to the Ohio line I intervied a young man - - - dressed very nice and seemed like he would fit in.

I allowed him to start the next day - - - He came in with short sleves showing his arms totally tatooed with very distastfull "art" a ring thru his nose with chains going to both eyebrows - - - I told him I would pay him for the day but he was not an employee - - - the threatened to sue and I threatened to pull all his piercings out very slowly if I ever heard from him again.

It takes all kinds to make a world but you must take responcibility for your actions - - - if he had worn long sleves and no piercings he could have worked but his choice of atire was not what I wanted for my salespeople.

I have never been to a job interview where I didn't wear a skirt. I don't know if that's doing me any favors in this industry, but it's what I was taught and I figure it can't hurt

FWIW, I have had to deal with folks from a broad variety of backgrounds and business situations.

My goal was to dress appropriately for what I am doing, and who I am meeting with.

Going in underground coal? Yep- jeans, coveralls, metatarsal guard boots, gloves, knee pads, miners lamp hardhat, safety glasses.

Staff of the PGA tour? Blazer and slacks.

Training at a construction site? Boots, khakis, golf shirt.

Meeting with the governing board to discuss a one billion dollar construction project? Suit. Not blazer- suit.


I should not be overdressed nor underdressed so that it creates a barrier to communication.

i agree with that C3. dressing in a Brooks Brothers suit for an interview for a heavy equipment technician's job would probably get you a few giggles!

but irregardless of the job or the attire for the interview, what's more important is you appearance. hair combed and trimmed if needed. beard or mustache trimmed neatly if you have them. clothes neatly pressed and not wrinkled. fingernails clipped and clean. little details such as these can make a difference. tells a potential employer a lot about you and your work ethics.

I wore a black pencil skirt nylons and heels to my job interview.... I don't think anyone laughed.
