Thank you all! I should have mentioned, I'm a woman, but the comments about suit and tie provide the context I was looking for. Sounds like a nice blouse will do.

And good luck!!!!

Depends on the company and role. I've been interviewing people via video chat for the past month. Sometimes they do suit and tie; other times they do business casual. I couldn't tell you who wore what because it didn't matter at all to me. Hell, I wore business casual to an in person interview in the before times; was coming straight from a lunch with a partner and didn't have time to change. I got and accepted an offer. All that said, I'd suggest cleaning up nicely for it. I'd do suit and tie

Wow. Talk about long winded. That last sentence was all that was needed.

Button-up collar shirt and jacket. No white shirt. It does not look right on camera and without a tie it looks off. I recommend a blue collared shirt with a navy or grey jacket. This is always a safe combo. Make sure the light is facing in your direction and not from a window behind.

Button down shirt, tie and pajamas lol 😂. Get a good camera and well lit space.

I wear a shirt and tie with shorts. All my interviews have been in tshirts.

Hey Sharks🦈, Recently I appeared for an interview at tech mahindra, I prepared based on job description but an interviewer asked me the questions which are not related to the job description I answered most of them.

Did she reject me even before an interview and asked me questions just for formality ? These are very mixed signs, am I overthinking ?

How much are recruiters expected to know for roles they are trying to fill?

Not sure if I’m expecting too much

This may be a hot take - but as a younger person, working with parents of small kids (especially new parents) is so frustrating. I frequently find myself responsible for picking up the slack due to their family commitments - it’s also somehow completely socially acceptable for kids to barge into zoom meetings screaming. I wouldn’t find it nearly as bothersome if I felt like leadership and parent colleagues took my issues and non work commitments seriously in addition to that of parents and kids
