FB help me out - I just set up an interview with a small firm. When I got the details it's at a pizzeria during lunch. What does a female wear to that? What type of interview should I expect?

Agree with BCG, dress and a blazer. If you feel too formal you can take the blazer off during lunch, but I think it's better to be too formal than too casual

A dress and blazer or cardigan would work well!

I always feel dress with blazer is a good way to dress up without looking like a "suit"

Is that lunch during a work day or on the weekend? If it's during a work day then go to it in your normal business clothes that you would be wearing that day

Workday - so no suit then?

I would say nice pants and top but no blazer/jacket. Of course others will disagree with me, but I think you should wear whatever you are most comfortable in. Besides it's like 100 degrees!

Is there something in between for females? I'm not too familiar with formal attire. For example, if this was me, my workday outfit is a shirt and dress pants. An interview outfit is a full suit and tie. A pizzeria lunch interview, I would go somewhere in the middle and wear a suit jacket with my shirt and pants

Agreed. Pants or dress with a blazer

Recruiter just suggested a suit... Seems like a blazer and dress is more appropriate?

If the recruiter suggested a suit that's what I would wear. But make sure the shirt you wear under the jacket is appropriate to wear on its own in case you end up wanting to take the jacket off. Again I usually err on the side of being too formal because I feel it's better than being too casual.

Good advice, guys! I knew I could count on FB. Thanks!

I had my first few rounds of Technical interview at Accenture couple of days back.
In today's HR interview, the HR tells me that we can't proceed with my interview since the amount of CTC they've fixed for my level (Level 11) is lesser than what I'm already earning.
During the pre interview round, the HR had offered me my expected CTC.
I don't understand why someone would do that.
