Job-Hunting Etiquette Tip

The saying goes, "Dress for the job you want, not for the job you have." I believe that if you dress to impress, you could increase your chances of getting a great job. Some job seekers are taking the interview process a little too casually. Denise Bober, director of human resources at The Breakers, a luxury hotel in Palm Beach, says many applicants show up for their interviews in shorts and flip-flops.

Then there was the young man who applied for a job at the world-famous hotel. The position: Poolside bungalow attendant. His attire: A business suit. Bober offered him the job!

I agree completely. Every job i go for i wear a suit, even if i know the dress code at the company is casual. You're not there to blend in you're there to stand out.
