I see no issues with the business dress + blazer part. Booties - depends on the look

Booties and pantsuit fine; dress and blazer with non booties fine; the combination may work but it really depends. Ultimately just wear what you’re most confident in because that’s what makes you rock an interview. :)

Is the dress & blazer the same fabric & color? If yes, that’s also a suit and I think dressier than a pants suit. I wouldn’t wear booties to an interview, but definitely to work with that outfit.

Depends on where you’re interviewing, but if it’s within consulting: no, you should wear a suit

Why not a suit to the booties if freezing cold? Why dress then at all? Play safe - do suit - if you don't get the job you know at least it was NOT because of appearance.

As long as it looks professional/close to business formal I don’t really care. Plus neat hair and nails. The rest is how you interview.

Need more context. That look would be fine at my office in LA but a no-go in NYC.

No. Not for consulting

Must call out that this will vary by region/office. The Seattle office of my firm would be ok with this for an interview, but other offices/markets not so much

Not for consulting. Def a suit if on east coast

Why not booties if freezing cold ?

Arrow Icon

No

Doesn’t seem right with the blazer. Booties & dress ok Dress & blazer & pumps OK Pant suit and pumps ok I, in general, change out of any kind of winter gear when I get to the office and swap to pepper ladylike heels

Hello Everyone, Hope you are doing well. I need a small help and advice from advice from all of you. Recently I received an offer from MNC but a some what wierd clause is included if I get rejected in the client interview company will decide my further deployment and engagement. Quote : "For the employees who are not so selected by Client for the offers; we will discuss further deployments and engagements with the Company at that point of time." Please help me understand it.

Do recruiters secretly make fun of you/don’t believe your current salary when you ask for “too much”. Most my interviews (even pre-covid) involved the recruiter telling me that is not within their budget. Just for reference I have 2 YOE in Product Management asking for $115k

I have a 2 hour interview with an agency tomorrow for a freelance role. This is my first time speaking with them, a recruiter set me up with them last week and they liked me enough to want to meet me (!!) I’m meeting the members of the team individually which is why it’s so long, but do you think a 2 hour interview right off the bat is a good sign? Any tips for not burning out over the course of 2 hours?

I’ve applied to over 40 jobs since I was laid off in March. Not one click to my portfolio, per analytics. With a family of four, we are being spread thin. Not only is the income desperately needed, but my creative soul needs a release. I would be happy to do typical Art Director work but I’m “over qualified” for that and am never taken seriously when applying for work below CD/ACD. If anyone needs or know of any company needing freelance work, large or small—I’d really appreciate the lead. 🙏
