What’s the dress code for zoom interviews? So far, I’ve definitely been dressed more formally than my interviewers but could be because they were tech companies

I always do blazer & button up. Everybody I interview with (Product management/product owner, tech consulting roles) is usually in polo or athleisure. Yes - I feel overdressed, but it's better than coming off as too casual


Tech I don’t think matters as much. I’d say as long as the delta isn’t too great. Ie: if they’re straight up hoodie with graphics, a suit is a little bit off


Depends on the culture but you want to be taken seriously -- dress up and be more conservative. I find that to be safer and people send to take you more seriously.

Just broke into tech and never wore anything nicer than a button up flannel shirt! My interviewers (at big tech and start ups) wore everything from tshirts to hoodies to dress shirts.

I wouldn't ever wear a suit, unless the position/team/company has a reputation for it (for some reason). Fwiw I wore a shirt and a pullover, and it was completely fine. My interviewers wore t-shirts and hoodies, so I can see how weird it would've come across if I was dressed up in a formal suit.

But I need to review content, NOT be her ESL tutor, which it feels like I am at the moment. PS. Yadda yadda, I get it: “languageism” is an extension of whiteness and I need to check my privilege.

Made a mistake of moving to US 10 years ago thinking this was the best country! Finally after looking for a good job opportunities for 3 years and several rounds of interviews, moving to Switzerland for good. Living in this country has been hell and for everyone who calls it the best country. God bless you. Good luck everyone living in US. Hope to see y’all never. Also goodbye Daddy D. Thanks for the memories!
