Just go in naked. When they ask why you’re not clothed, just pause for a moment, take a long hard look at them and reply “strategy”. You’ll get hired on the spot. Works every time

Or unbutton another button if you’re a woman 🤷🏻‍♂️

Dont think you can really go wrong in a full suit. Can always take the tie off when you get there if you think you’re too overdressed

And power undies

Google in the valley DESPISES suits and ties. You would be counterproductive if you do that. Wear designer jeans, good shirt (untucked is classier for the Valley culture), and no jacket. If that makes you uncomfortable, take a blazer or a sweater with you and either wear it or carry it.

@P1, over my jeans?

Ask the recruiter contact. Since we don’t know which company you are talking about, our suggestion would be like the ones above

Nah, I interviewed there for a PM role with suit no tie and was overdressed. 3-4 notches above the people that I was interviewing. A tie would have really made me stand out. I asked the recruiter, who suggested business casual and then went one higher just for my comfort. All this assumes that you are interviewing on the west coast. East coast offices tend to be stuffy.

I wore dark jeans & a button up with suede shoes. Did just fine 😉

As PwC1 said, power undies over jeans. Also, don’t forget the Batman mask.

It’s at google. I’m male. What do the googlers think? Full suit and tie?

For a small startup, it was jeans and dress shirt. For Google, I did slacks, dress shirt, and no jacket.

You would think that @d1 but based on al the news it seems like the higher ups at big tech are freaks behind closed doors

I wore jeans and a button up with a vest (was in winter). Obvs got the job

Lots of post about kids so I’ll offer one that’s been on my mind. Why more than one kid? I grew up with a sibling. She is my best best friend but as I’ve gotten older realized we were more of the exception. Lucky that we are same gender (which I do think impacts closeness), that we are close in age, and just clicked like bffs. Have since met so many sibs with non existent and toxic relationships. More kids = more expense. After passing on genes and getting love of a child, why have more than one

Anyone else ever feel like a completely inadequate consultant? I'm struggling with performance quality on this project because I just feel dumb and it demotivates me to really strive to improve.
