Wear it to the interview and wear it first day. Do I think it’s silly? Yea, but it’s easy, looks good, and personally puts me in a more professional mindset. I just did a zoom interview with three partners sitting around a table in jeans and polos with one drinking a beer. I had on my suit jacket and tie.

I had an interview last week for a Jr CW job. All went well it seemed. The CCO’s exact closing words were “You’re gonna have a great career. Your ideas are good”. Additionally, a CD there I contacted on LinkedIn said the CCO liked my book. But he ended by telling me they’re still getting things sorted out and to follow up this week. Don’t know if this is a bad sign I won’t get it or if I’m just being insanely impatient and unrealistic.
