    Default Would you hire....

    I got into an argument with a friend about how the way you dress can affect the way your prospective employer may think of you. I dress in a fairly formal way, but I mix it up with jeans sometimes. I always like to look put together. My friend says that employer would think that I'm a "jerky wasp" living off of mommy and daddy's money. I on the other hand believe that an employer would think that if I put that much effort into how I dress, I would put a lot of effort into my work. Do you all think this is true out of personal experience? I'm not going to change the way I dress based on this, but I'm curious

    Has your friend ever been interviewed or employed?

    Like Jackson said, dress for success.

    I was brought up at work with the phrase "dress for the position you want."
    The more lax you dress, the more lax you act. Over the summer, our typically business casual office allowed jeans every day. The noise level was higher, people were hanging out in the cubicles of others more, etc. Now that we've gone back to business casual attire, the professionalism seems to be higher.

    Dress depends on where you are interviewing.

    There is a diminishing return to this. (Thinking of Will Ferrell's interview in a tux.)

    Why would a potential employer even concern himself with a potential employees sleeping situation or current income? lol..

    Dress for success. Always look like youre prepared to work,

    I tend to dress like an asshole think that guy on the Kardashian show. But for an interview be conservative White dress shirt Blue black or gray suit. Express style in the shoe but be conservative. I work in finacial markets and even if your clients or empoyers are wild, they prob dont want you to be wild if that was the case they would do it themselves. After a while there and youve proven what you can do then do as you please.
