Superficial much?
If a company is going to refuse to hire me because I wore a suit to the interview, I am not sure I want to work for them anyway. I mean, seriously?

I can hear my Dad's voice asking his under-dressed kid -- "Are you afraid they're going to take you too seriously?"

Re: Superficial much?
I recently took part in a presentation to a group of advertising agency 20- and 30-somethings. I wore a sports jacket and slacks, but no tie -- and still felt like an old man amid the folks wearing jeans and T-shirts. Every situation is different. Sometimes it pays to dress down a bit.

I suspect attire plays far less of a role in West Coast hiring decisions than inappropriate social media posts.

Really?
This is all a little silly. While you'll want to fit in with others when you have the job, I can't see the harm in dressing to impress when you're interviewing. If you look good, you feel good, and that'll boost your confidence. I'd much rather be over-dressed than under-dressed.

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation.
