should I wear a suit?
I work in an office. Yesterday I went to work in ripped jeans, battered Cons and a cardigan. But I still worse a suit to the interview, just looks a bit sharper and more impressive.
Of course, it might not matter either way...
you beat me to it by about an hour
After the first I noticed (and was told) that people in the office were generally wearing jeans and t-shirts and trainers.
I still went to the second interview in a suit, it can't work against you to look smart.
I'm looking forward to being as scruffy as I like for work though :D
always wear a suit to an interview. It gives a good impression.
a) I work in a library
b) I have an interview for a library job next Friday
though shirt and tie may be sufficient - anything less looks complacent
can you imagine a complacent librarian?
and that is me
you LOVE sheep
the man's asked you a question!
was a complacent Jew
clear from his deafening silence.
he just talks in tongues
but the consensus says no, shame my suit is too big for me and very crumpled. Any tips for getting a job in a library, what do they want to hear? It is just a part time library assistant job does this make it anyless suit worthy. I hate wearing a suit, I didn't even wear a suit to court.
away with that to be honest. As long as you don't wear trainers : )
They're normally just interested in your personality. So snap out of it yeah!
I completely lack personality, I was hopinging I could impress them with my scowling and Sshhing skills
are more like youth clubs now - there's no shhhhing.
Honestly - just smile a lot, be polite. They won't ask you any difficult questions. Library users are the most important thing. I'm organised. Enthusiastic. Blah blah blah
smiling makes my face hurt but i'll give it a try
i work for an organisation that has a library and we were interviewing for new library staff the other day.
every single person, when asked what their hobbies were, said 'reading' and the interviewers got REALLY bored by this. So i recommend saying something different!
DON'T SAY THAT
that books are BORING and for GIRLS!
about 'interests' in regards to job applications. Mine are 'music' 'films' and 'reading' the same as everyone else, I am sometimes tempted to write that although my interests are the same as everyone else I am an elitist and like obscure stuff and am therefore better but I don't think that would go down too well.
this 17 year old school leaver came for an interview dresser in a tuxedo. I laughed about that for days.
kind of imagination. He looked like a concert pianist.
and no he didn't.
why didn't somebody tell him?
but I'm pleased no one did. It was the highlight of my banking career.
nah too obvious
as well have done it
and for your information, I'm still waiting for a highlight of any kind on that front.
I worked in a library for 5 years and it was excellent. I wore a shirt and tie to the interview but a suit would be better if it's a full time job.
for my interview I will have to wear a suit, and then if I get the job I will be interviewing the likes of you. And then I will just sit there and scowl at you for having the audacity to wear a black jumper and I'll tell you to shhhh every time you open four God-damned mouth
you hadn't gone and done something silly like double booking yourself.
in the afternoon I would have cried
bring a date stamp, and stamp everything. And SSSSSSSSH! the interview loudly every time they start to ask you a question. That'll win em over.
unless it's the librarian from questionable content, in which case crack on with some deviant sex stories.
