  • Fine for a very casual weekend
  • Sloppy

Is this appropriate for a Career Fair?

  • At a minimum, would tuck in the shirt and wear leather shoes if you have them; If you can afford business casual pants vs jeans, would strongly advise that as you'll be compared against more sharply dressed candidates - You are making yourself more work to get past the over-relaxed attire and make yourself credible

  • I like this for a career fair; Professional but not overdone
  • The coat isn't necessary from my point of view, but doesn't hurt either

Is this appropriate for an Interview?

  • For an internship interview, wouldn't change anything. For full time interview on campus, might consider wearing a tie but this outfit doesn't need that. You could walk in, project confidence and competence and get hired pretty easily. If you're being invited to the company’s corporate center for interviews, I'd probably default to adding the tie.
