Do you normally wear a red tie specifically

Had a few zoom interviews post covid and I didn't bother with a suit and tie (I normally would for an in person interview). Did the zoom interviews in a shirt and a merino sweater (it's winter here) and I was still overdressed compared to my interviewers (one, from Accenture, was in a t-shirt).

I’ve been wearing a nice top/blouse as a female. All my interviewers (Male) have been wearing Tshirts and even have had baseball caps on.

I conducted interviews a few weeks ago and wore my usual zoom outfit - tshirt. Most interviewees were in business casual- guys were wearing shirts blazers no tie or just dress shirt. Women wore blazers or blouses.

I would wear a nice shirt or blouse with a jacket. Always better to be dressed for success! Besides if you are dressed nicer then you will feel better! Good luck

I agree with D3. Dress sharp with pressed shirt and blazer/jacket. Wouldn’t go as far as suit and tie. For that matter, you could be wearing shorts. I conducted a few interviews last week, I was in a (collared) polo shirt. One interviewee was wearing a suit and a tie (was trying too hard). The woman interviewee was wearing a blouse, which I thought was more appropriate for a zoom interview. For strategy roles

Interviewed for a Production Support Engineer role two days ago - went OK, was able to answer some questions and others that I couldn’t.

Feedback from Manager was that I presented myself well and they would have to discuss as a team if they had the time to get me up to speed as there was a learning curve. Noticed yesterday morning the the role had been newly posted on LinkedIn (day after interview).

Anyone ever leave for a chiller role then regret it? I did three years in Consulting then went to PE.

I’ve been back in Consulting for a while now, and am enjoying being back, but I can’t shake this feeling I’m wasting my potential. Like because I’m no longer reaching for the highest rung on the ladder (PE), I’m selling myself short professionally. Any advice?
