Interview attire?

T-shirt, jeans, and flip-flops. Make sure you get a pedicure though. This is an interview

Tight pants, tight shirt. Eat a big meal and look at some porn before you enter the building.

Seriously though, either ask the recruiter or look at the agency’s social media to get a feel for their vibe. While you want to look professional, you also don’t want to look out of place. Most agencies are very casual and most creatives are fine showing up to interview in nice jeans and a nice shirt/blouse. I’ve seen some others suggest that creatives should wear a suit. DONT WEAR A SUIT. You’ll look like you’re interviewing for a finance job. Also, don’t wear: ripped jeans, shorts, baseball/trucker hats, t-shirts, short dresses/skirts, anything with a plunging neck or back and nothing see-through. I’ve seen candidates wear all of those, and it’s really awful and always gets commented on. Also, please don’t show up empty handed. Bring something to show your work on and a notepad to take notes in. Don’t be too early (10 minutes early is fine...anything earlier than that is uncomfortable) and definitely don’t be late. Mostly, be comfortable and be yourself. Did I leave anything out?

Collared shirt, dark jeans and nice shoes has always worked fine for me.

No one cares. Don’t wear something sleazy and don’t eat onions or garlic beforehand. Suck on an Altoid beforehand if you do anything

Depends on the place. You could be too formal or too casual. Ask people who work there. Social media is your ally.

Wear what you'd wear if you were presenting to their client.

In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
