Please settle a disagreement between my girlfriend and me. She says I should always dress in “formal interview attire” for a job interview. I say it depends. If I know that everyone in a certain organization dresses in business casual, or even in jeans, I think dressing in a business suit makes me look like I don’t understand “the corporate culture.” Plus I don’t want to be better dressed than the interviewer. I’ve seen job fair recruiters wearing polo shirts. Who’s right?
