  2. Interview Prep
  3. Put-off by an internal candidate because they wore a suit?


I recently interviewed for a job within my company that I worked at for 8 years (from engineer to product management role). The panel included many people I work with currently and I was told I did not get the job for numerous reasons that I understood.

However one of my buddies in engineering asked one of the panel members why I wasn’t picked, and he said that they were kind of put off by the fact that I wore a suit and that I took the day off before the interview (it was a Tuesday).

Yes, I know the the dress code culture in my company, but is that really one of the reasons you would share why you had an issue with a candidate?
