Acceptable Attire to Meet Interviewer at the Airport?

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Sep 06, 2011 1:23 pm

I did a search, but only found one or two threads on this. Is it okay to wear a button down and khakis to meet my interviewer at the airport?

Are you having an interview right away? If so, wear a suit.

Frankly, I'd wear a suit regardless unless they specifically tell you not to. It's generally better to be over dressed than under dressed

No interview, just checking into the hotel and getting dinner.

That will still go in to the interviewers decision making. If you don't think so you are completely fooling yourself. Go with a suit, unless dinner is going to be at a rib house....
