I have an on-site interview next week and when I received the hotel reservations and itinerary, it included a section about attire.
This is a somewhat hip company in the industry and they stressed how casual their office is and "no-tie" policy. It said that they want their interviewees to feel comfortable, so to please feel free to wear jeans, khakis, etc.
The thing is, I feel that is drastically underdressed for an interview (even if it is my daily level of work wear, I dress up beyond that any time I have meet with clients, which is pretty typical for the industry as well).
If it matters, my first interview with the same people Iíll be meeting with next week was by video conferenceÖ I threw on a jacket for that, so I feel like Iíve set a level of formality already (since they couldnít see my jeans through the web cam).
Business-etiquette wise, do you think I should go with what they say, or dress up a bit more? FWIW, I was planning on wearing black slacks and a jacket/blazer thing (but not a matching suit jacketóa full-on matching suit would be very formal for our industry, even in interviews). I donít want to act like I think their dress code is too casual (for daily wear, I don't think it is), but at the same time, I feel like an interview should be more formal.
