I'm interviewing for a strategy director-level role at Intuit in SF. What would you wear to the interview? Is full suit and tie too formal?

Am I just old school in thinking that a suit is always the safe bet?

like

Really depends, if interviewing at a place with tech/startup culture, suit can be a real misstep

Why don't you ask the recruiter about the culture and dress accordingly...

like

A suit for a first impression will signal you’re not a cultural fit

like

Suit for interview and first day impression, then conform to culture, as appropriate. Tie vs sweater under jacket (winter), depending on generation and job type? Director level may be client facing and should mirror client expectations not firms. 😊

like

PD1, this is not a client facing consulting role.

like

dark jeans and sport coat. Ditch the coat if you find your interviewer/s aren’t wearing one once you get there.

I would wear the suit and no tie at least. But probably tie. And then acclimate to culture once you get the job. My home office is fairly laid back during week (no ties or jackets), but if someone showed up dressed like that I would judge negatively

I wouldn’t go full suit. For sure, no tie

Director level requires a suit for sure.

I’m a tech consultant working in the SAP practice. I’m a second year associate. I have decided that I don’t like the culture of consulting - work more hours, always add more work and responsibility to your plate, etc. I would like to work a job that is more 9-5 that doesn’t expect you to work in so many different things at once. What industry roles should I be applying to? Is leaving after 1.5 years too soon?

What are tips for interviewing when your current role has defeated you? I’m anxious and depressed a decent amount of the time. All I think about it my job right now & how terrible it is..even though I’m trying to remember I need this job to financially support myself. I think it has also knocked down my confidence and self esteem and so now I’m wondering why anyone would want to hire me after interviewing me.

So I started at a new role at a known retailer about 2 months ago. I am their first hire in this role, as I have more than 5 years of relevant experience leading initiatives and optimizing process across departments. While I understand it takes time to adjust to the culture, its seems like all I have witnessed is resistance to change. I already feel myself not wanting to be here long, but I'm putting pressure on myself to not be a quitter. Would you stick it out or start looking?
