Job interview What to wear....

I find smart shoes, black suit pants and a black shirt with some sort of smart coat a good winner. I have only ever been to a few interviews and a suit has never been required. The only industry event I wear a suit for is Knight Of Illumination!

Look at it this way...blacks are sort of a uniform you wear on the job. However, if you were applying to be a policeman or a fireman, it would be a bit strange to turn up for the interview wearing a helmet or carrying an axe or truncheon.
I repeat my earlier advice: you can't go wrong with a suit or jacket, tie and dress trousers combination--dressing up can't hurt and might help. The only exception to this would obviously be turning up hoping for casual work on a get in or similar--but that's hardly an interview.

For interview tips Google 'interview first impressions' for a host of websites.
I have to say though, that my mental image combining Ram's approach with Bobbsy's axe may not get you the job but you'd most likely be offered free accommodation at Her Majesty's Pleasure.
