I was focusing more on the initial 'Please Hire Me' interview.
Because it is more acceptable now in the work place to 'dress down' to a point, does that transfer over to the interview?
Or is it still as important to dress more for the job of the person interviewing rather than the job you are interviewing for?
The book, 'Dress for Success', published back in the 70s (with a revised, updated version in the 90s) was aimed at the idea that you should look your best in order to land the job that leads to your success. Although, the idea of trying to make a impression by dressing the part may have become diluted over the years. Don't you think it still carries some weight?
I keep remembering a manager I once had that said; "you should always dress for the job you want, not the one you have."
