Going on my first interview in what seems like forever. I had an introductory meeting on zoom and now this will be in person. Typically I’d wear a suit but I hear that polos and dress pants are the “in” way? Any recommendations?

I would not worry too much about what’s “in” and wear what you feel like expresses you best and looks professional. As long as it’s presentable you should be fine. Unless they state otherwise is just wear what’s comfortable for you.

It also depends on what stage you’re in, if you’re speaking to a recruiter, a polo works great, but if you’re speaking to a manager in the company, I’d go with a shirt or suit.

I always dress up if I'm going to an in person interview. I would dress to impress if you are going to meet with the manager or other team members

I usually make sure to put on a dress shirt when I have zoom interviews (even without camera on). In fact, in tech these days it is rare to see people show up to even in-person interviews in a full suit.

Ditch the tie and wear slacks and a jacket. But get an idea of what the company culture is too. If it’s super casual, a nice polo with pants and belt/dress shoes can be fine too

How common is it to eventually make $350k+ in-house/how difficult is it to transition back to a firm? Thanks!

Hiring manager sends me an email with only standard benefits, no bonus, etc. Are these red flags?
