Keep one in your hand and show them at the beginning of the call that you have one but you didn't wear one because it's WFH season.

Join early with video on as you fumble to tie it. As an interviewer, I always give bonus points to folks who make me chuckle 😏

I’m a beautiful white male with some incredible brands on my resume. My tanned waxed chest awes my interviewers as they give me an offer on the spot. Of course I told them i couldn’t be long because I had reservations at Dorsia’s new outdoor seating.

If you’re good no tie. If you’re not great wear two ties.

I interviewed in polo shirts at FAANG and got multiple offers, only advice I can give is dress based on the company. Tech firms don’t really care as long as you are dressed in something presentable

The old school SEO tactic of the white font keywords. I like. Haha.

Depends on the company. I’ve been doing button down and sports jacket with no tie. The interviewer showed up in a polo.

Depends on the company as previously mentioned. I work for a boutique consultancy and wear a button up to the interview. If someone wears a shirt, it's not an auto no, but we take that into consideration (depending on how the rest of the interview goes). If someone is dressed business casual that's what I've expected. Can't dress up too much, but you can certainly dress too far down.

Now THAT'S classy.

I interviewed with a telecoms company in a polo shirt and got the job, no issues - interviewers weren’t smartly dressed at all either (UK here)

I haven't worn ties to interviews after college

Bow tie or no tie

I look for work daily and have had a handful of interviews, but nothing has stuck. It’s difficult to handle the rejection and I just don’t know what to do anymore...
