I hired hundreds of people over my 35 year career and it always made a good first impression on me when someone showed up for an interview wearing a tie.

The interviewers started it. The people were showing up in suits, and the interviewer would say something like , "wow, youre dressed up nice. Now I feel under dressed"

Then turn around and not give you the job.

They would also use vulgar language in the interview.
that is something that really really bothered me to hear of.
everything is low end, and low balling, today. People showing up with blue hair, and tats on their faces.

I usually show up to job interviews in an all white suit with a pointy hood

Relax and be yourself, don't try to put on an act in an effort to impress the interviewer. I can't tell you how many times I have experienced that, and it always frustrates me. Answer all questions truthfully. Unless you are really good at lying, your body English will give you away. Prepare ahead of time because most interviewers will ask you to name your strengths and weaknesses.

Well... the joke is on me! I just noticed that mjames first posted that in 2019 :-) :-) :-)

It was painful to watch a recent interview of a black couple in Minneapolis who had poured their lives into their restaurant only to have it burned down by a bunch of BLM's hoodlums. And don't give me any cover-up crap, the couple personally witnessed who looted and then set fire to their life's work.

What does this have to do with wearing a tie to a job interview?

For the record, I don’t own a tie. I would have to wear a nice Hermes scarf.

Nothing, this thread is so old that the kid probably got the job, worked his whole career, then retired by now.

Basically the same thing you wear to your NAMBLA meetings.

I pretty much always got mine at the markets. Your collection has me beat by a mile, I only have about 15. If I get my dream to retire there...that'll be my closet.
