I’m a mid level associate interviewing in Atlanta (non-lit). What are people’s thoughts on suit v. dress/blazer combo for interviews?

Wear whichever looks best on you and makes you feel confident. Both are good professional looks.

As long as the blazer and dress are made from the same fabric, yes. Theory has the best combos in black, grey, and navy.

Definitely dress/blazer in Atlanta (much more common to see in the offices generally)

It also depends on the culture of the particular office/firm. Ideally your clothes should blend in and you will stand out for your accomplishments. Have you met anyone who works there or visited their offices? Any indication of what they generally wear? Good luck!!

My recruiter was very unsure (why I thought to ask everyone here), but if it's not a "taboo" question, there are one or two associates I think I'd be comfortable asking. Appreciate the tips!

Suit always put your best foot forward

My anxiety has snowballed in the past month and I’m really struggling. If you think about that feeling of nervousness you feel when you’re about to walk into a job interview.. that’s how I feel all day every day. I’m suddenly nervous/anxious about EVERYTHING, even when I’m not thinking about anything. It’s to the point where last night I couldn’t fall asleep bc my heart wouldn’t stop racing in nervousness but there’s nothing I could/should have been nervous for. Has anyone else experienced this?

When you’re applying to jobs or sending your portfolio to folks, is there a good way to ask for more specific, actionable feedback? I’ve had a few people say they really liked my spec work, but without specifics I don’t know which areas to improve or which elements to double down on. Is there a way to loop back and ask for someone to elaborate on their feedback or do you just move on and hope the next person goes more in-depth?

Been at D (legacy S&O) for ~ 6 wks now as an analyst and goal to be at MBB by EoY. 1) Where can I find resources on how “experienced” hire recruiting differs from campus hires? 2) What are some best practices/resources/tips for casing? Got 2 1st round interviews during college, and did well on behavioral, but was told my casing needed some work. I want to do anything in my power to close my ability gap. Thank you!

I got laid off in January and have been trying to find a new job since. I keep making it to the phone interview and sometimes a second interview, but always get ghosted. It’s so disheartening. I have too much experience for an internship, and I have too little to be the top choice for copywriter roles. I know I’m a good writer, I know what I’m capable of, but it’s so exhausting trying to convince people. They always like my book but it’s never enough to get the gig. What can I do?
