Any thoughts on what to wear to a job interview for a business that is casual / jeans every day (woman)? Is it still protocol to wear suits even if the company is clearly driving a casual environment?

Doesn't matter what the office dress code is, still dress professionally

Definitely wear a suit. No way you get knocked for being professional and taking it seriously.

My general advice for interviews (or client meetings) has always been "one step above typical dress".

If the company's truly casual, I'd wear business casual, or w/e you typically wear to the PwC office.

If it's smart casual (still have no idea what this means), I'd wear a suit.

Always dress well! This is true regardless of your industry or potential employer.

Thanks for the feedback - I was also leaning towards suit, but didn't want to come off too rigid and it's hard to find the right suit style for women.

If it's truly casual and not just smart casual with jeans, I would do business casual. Suit would be a bit much. I didn't like the look either so I'd do a more fashion blazer with a blouse as my professional interview look.

Personally I would wear dress with blazer or sweater

Hi All,

Please clear my doubts, if you have any idea.

1. I have posted X(<10L) as expected CTC in the form before Final tech round. I finished final round. So,HR will call and ask me what is your expectations. Can I change my expectations to >10L, because I feel I deserve more,and company is paying that for others as well.

2. What reason can I give to HR for the above problem, IF she asks why?


I have around 2.5 YOE, tech - Azure, devops. CCTC 4.2.

Please suggest. Thanks.
