I did for my interviews

Birthday Suit

Just don't pull a Toobin and leave the camera on...

Depends on the job. I met with some startups and didn’t do a tie but more traditional employers I’ve done the suit from the waist up.

Put on a turtle neck for my virtual interview, no blazer. Got an offer 3 days later so assuming it wasn’t a problem

I haven't worn long pants since March 2020.

Most, though not all, interviewees have (I've been doing lots of interviews the last few weeks). Regular t-shirt seemed too informal to me, but the people who wore anything from a dressy polo shirt to a full suit were fine by me. A nice shirt/sweater for client meetings is all anyone wears on my team/client side/outside counsel; no one is putting a suit on for these meetings.

The absolute most dressed I have been has been shirt, no tie. And this is in front of the client's C suite, who have usually been in t-shirts, sometimes a polo or a sweater.

Full suit while WFH is just gonna look weird...

I'm crying openly on camera now. Being truly authentic

Gauge your client’s org culture and how casual they are. In terms of level of people though, I typically have a dress shirt and blazer if it’s C-Suite/Senior leaders—not sure about virtual dressing etiquette for women though.

Hi Guyz, want to share one incident with you and need your advice on this. I applied in Dassault Systemes last year in November . There was one coding round which I cleared and after that they schedule the interview for me. On the interview day, i sent one mail to the interviewer to confirm and i got an automatic reply saying he is out of office. The interviewer did not inform me plus they did not even reschedule the interview. When I call the HR , the HR refused . Dassault Systemes
