Given this particular interview scenario, please advise me on what I should wear on each day (see details).
I have an interview for a position within a company I already work for. There are many applicants, and the company is taking us out for dinner and drinks Wednesday evening. The dress code has been determined to be Business Professional that evening.
Thursday is an all day event at the corporate offices, and it’ll be at that time that all the applicants will have a chance to sit down and have one-on-one interviews with company executives. This day has been determined to be Business Casual. The events each day are on an itinerary and have specific times.
I recently purchased a new suit and plan to wear it Wednesday evening with a new shirt and tie combination, I assume that would fulfill the business professional requirement…. But it now becomes confusing since I’m use to wearing a suit and tie for an interview. They said Business Casual… should I just wear the suit without a tie? I’m at somewhat of a loss on this issue and don’t want to be the only one who shows up not dressed properly.
What do I wear Thursday? Also, Thursday evening after all the interviews are done, the company is taking everyone out to Dave and Busters for free games/drinks. It’s been determined that Dave and Busters will be casual. I planned on wearing jeans and a nice shirt for the casual part.
Help shed some light on Business Professional vs. Business Casual under the specific circumstances I find myself in.
