My son asked me what he should wear to his next interview with a company with which he really wants to work.
This interview is a third contact where they are actually paying money for him to travel to their location. He is scheduled to graduate from college this coming spring with an appropriate degree.
This interview will include being inside the corporate offices and going out(side) into the [dirty, muddy] field. This time of year the weather may be wet, cold and/or snowy.
He wants a job with this company so bad he could probably make himself be composed half-naked in an icestorm....
BUT, he is a poor college student with a limited wardrobe but willing to buy new stuff.
I tried to use my Google-fu to research "engineer chic" and to find photos of office-dressed civil engineers in-the-field... to no avail.
We have two weeks for suggestions.
BTW, I think the company will hire him no matter what because he is smart and passionate and if they do not see that they are doodoo-heads.
My question is: What can a college kid who only has a well-cut suit, several nice shirts and two cool ties, sneakers and steel-toed boots wear to an important interview?
