How should I dress for a video interview with Booz Allen? It's for a data scientist position. I'm a guy. I was thinking business casual because it feels weird to dress up in a suit for a video chat but is that the new standard now for interviews?

It’s BAH... just wear a Snuggie blanket.

Business casual should be fine. "Dress for your day" is a BAH policy. Basically, dress professionally, but no need to overdo it. The only time I wear suits is when I'm client site/facing.

I would dress in a suit unless that makes you uncomfortable.

I had a video interview in 2016. Wore a suit and tie but took the jacket off so I wouldn't sweat. Biz casual sounds good to me but I always err on the side of being overdressed than under.

I wore a blazer and white shirt with no tie

Okay so I was recently fired from Company A but immediately I applied at company B via a strong reference and was offered position that I accepted. Since I am on H1b, I didn’t reveal in the interview that I was let go, now that I am joining the new firm should I somehow tell the people that interviewed me that I was let go? I guess I don’t know how to handle this as I am afraid they might come to know in future, will it matter? Please help am in psychological dilemma
