Please allow a good old fashioned grip session.
I'm the editor and publisher of two small newspapers - 8 employees. I'm in the process of looking for a new classifieds representative and a part-time sports writer.
When did they, whoever "they" are, stop teaching people how to dress for an interview?
Thus far I have interviewed a total of 11 people for the two jobs and not one was dressed in a manner that I'd deem was trying to impress me. One guy, NO LIE, was dressed like he walked in from the beach.
I know we are a coastal community and very laid back, but come on. Are kaki's and a nice shirt too much to expect? I have had shorts, jeans, sandals and a string of untucked shirts and I'm about to scream.
I don't know what to do, but this is clearly a pet peeve of mine.
Sorry all...and thank you for the rant.
