I'm probably overthinking this, but I figured I would ask anyways--what should I swear to a video interview? The position is an HR Generalist position, and will include the hiring manager (director), an HR Manager, a HRBP, and the VP of HR. Other members of the HR may "pop in" as well, but I was told those would be informal meet and greets.

I find it useful not to swear on video interviews :) Fashion-wise - look at tv anchors. Here is a useful article: https://www.dressingwell.com/blog/57-dressing-from-the-waist-up-enhancing-executive-presence-on-video-conference-calls

Wear what you would if it was an in-person interview, at least from the waist up.

And just like news anchors - if you aren’t completely in business attire don’t move off camera to reveal your half outfit. The above link in the comment above is a great reference! I’m sure you’ll make a great impression. Wish you well on your interview!!

My suggestion around this is: Be completely dressed in business attire appropriate to the job if you were interviewing live in person. That way you don't have to worry that you might have to stand up for some reason and expose your gym shorts!

- Work 60+ hours a week, getting good feedback - Don’t get paid more compared to those working 40 - Can’t get on projects I want because they’re not staffing the same time I’m available - No good exit opportunities because don’t have the proper skills (bc cannot get on the right projects to acquire them) and recruiters & hiring managers don’t want to take a chance on you because ACN isn’t as prestigious as some other firms 👹
