Professional up top. Party downstairs

I did jacket no tie. Depends on the company though… I was definitely more dressed up than any interviewer but think you can’t go wrong with the jacket and shirt set up (or the equivalent if for a woman)

I did full suit

We all know you had no pants on

from a female perspective- I wore a nice blouse with a blazer over it. and sweats on the bottom obvi cause it’s *virtual*

It’s always better to be overdressed so I went with full suit and tie up top.

Most people dont mind business casual but if any of the interviewers does, you're out. How lucky are you feeling?

I did jacket and tie for an interview and nobody said anything one way or another until my final interview when the partner got on and goes “it’s too early for a tie, take it off.” It was 8am. But it was good to have on because at the very least it let things start off on a lighter note.

Nice shirt is good enough.

I think professional looks the nicest, but people I’ve interviewed have been business casual as well and it isn’t a big deal unless dress code was specified. Obviously can’t see pants so just be comfortable in stuff off screen.

I got shirt and tie. Can’t do the jacket in my own home

I just did a nice blouse because it was 90 degrees when I interviewed but no one seemed to care.

I did a suit and tie but some of the time I was just wearing jeans instead of suit pants
