Play it safe and ask the recruiter—that’s what they’re there for. Really depends on the industry. Suit & tie will be way overdressed in tech, for example

Wear what you would wear to a normal interview, usually a suit. Bottom is optional, but take your chances if you ever have to get up.

Hoodie / tshirt is fine in first round. Something with buttons for final. Jacket is overkill. I have not seen a single interviewer wear a jacket, this includes bankers and PE so ya...

For big tech I’ve been fairly successful with a collared dress shirt and a nice quarter zip sweater. Obviously this is considering the fall and winter climates so wouldn’t recommend it during warmer weather months of course. But I feel like it’s a professional enough to be taken seriously and not overdoing it like a sports coat might come off

Tuxedo

I think a Mr T starter set would be an interesting choice. Really help you stand out from all the other “boring” candidates.

How do you politely turn down a job offer or back out of interview at last step without burning bridges? After meeting the hiring manager and stakeholders I don’t think we’re a good fit. This job also requires relocation. I don’t want to take a job and uproot my life for something that isn’t the right fit. I’m currently unemployed so feeling a bit desperate but also don’t want to move for something that isn’t right. Thanks!

Got a zoom link for interview. Checked zoom link about 1 hour before interview time to ensure it works. Turns out it’s the link to the interviewer’s room where he’s holding an unrelated meeting with other people, there was no passcode, so I quickly exited. No webcam or audio on from my side. Cause for concern? I would think best practice is private zoom link with code to enter…

Down because I got some upsetting (work-related) news yesterday. I was up for promotion and did not get it, basically for my actual job that I have been acting in for over a year. I had perfect reviews and perfect on the technical portion of the interview. Apparently they dinged me on something subjective relating to situational competencies. Colleagues—who I trained and mentored—did receive promotion and we will all be working at the same job, just them at higher level and pay. Contd.
