Number one , shows your strong and confident . Make sure they understand your integrity  is what you pride yourself with . Aswell as mentoring young people to respect themselves and others . Accountiblity and  being prompt are huge for me. Good luck , the fact you are worried about what to wear shows me  how much you repeat this tittle .coach
My wife told me that I hunt way more than I did when we first got married. I said yeah I know isn't it great !

Girls Soccer so #2.  No one wants a stuffed shirt for girlz soccer.   
This job is 100% about character and trust.  Secondly about soccer and coaching.  I'm sure you know that.

Job interview. Help me pick clothes
« Reply #27 on: June 17, 2017, 12:23:31 AM »
What kind of job are you interviewing for?

And forget "rules of thumbs". I wear a multicolored bright oranges and reds tie when I interview for jobs that I actually get. Done that three times over the past 10 years.

Edit:
Read the rest of the thread.
Wear whatever suit(s) you plan to wear to the games. Any of those shirt and tie combinations is fine. BUT. I suggest showing team/school pride and go in with a tie that sports their colors.

I didn't vote because all I see are X's, but it's me it's not you  :chuckle:


I like the idea of coordinating with the school colors, so I'd dress in a suit and school color tie.   

If the school is blue and gold, I'd wear a tie trimmed in gold accents and blue dress shirt under a suit.  As a girls coach I'd appear very much on the up and up and try not to look like a flashy/sexy perv  :chuckle:  Think conservative, these folks are trusting you with their daughters.

Over the years I've conducted many interviews, everything from entry level corporate positions to basic warehouse workers. Few things I do know from my experience and dealing with other hiring managers.
1) It's difficult to over dress as long as you stay fairly conservative.
2) think before you speak and don't drag on when you do speak.  Watch your grammar-nothing like a "I ain't done that before" or "I aint scared of doing that" to turn off an interviewer.
    Don't answer questions that aren't asked. (part of the dragging on when you speak). Never interrupt when the interviewer is speaking.
3) Most of us have already heard the standard answers to the standard questions, which is sometimes ok but don't sound too canned with your answers.
4) Don't get tricked into your giving your thoughts on controversial topics (religion or politics)
5) Show some personality, but don't over do it.  You aren't the interviewers long lost friend.
6) Most rejections are  actually done in the first 2 minutes of an interview.  A firm handshake (don't try to bust the interviewers hand , just a firm handshake), a pleasant smile and a
    good show of courtesy.  Don't be slouching in your chair or jump up like you just saw the seahawks score a touchdown. Be very polite to the receptionist and other office personnel.
7) Be prepared, as others have said, research the position so you can ask intelligent questions and don't let the first questions out of your mouth be about pay raises, vacation time or sick
    leave.
Most of us are anxious to hire, we want to get it done - but we are also held accountable if we hire a dead beat.  Use good common sense and , within reason, be yourself -not what you think the interviewer wants you to be. (because usually you're wrong)
Good luck (I did vote)

If the job is in Eastern Washington wear camo. If the job is in Western Washington, especially if in King County,wear something floral.

I'm confused, Camo was not an option on the vote choices? If you can't wear Camo, you don't want that job anyways!!

If this is in King Co., you might consider wearing a dress. If you tell them you identify as a woman, your chances of landing the job will exponentially increase. I suggest something conservative, knee length, with a collar which doesn't expose too much. Certainly long sleeves and solid color (lighter colors - summer's here!) with matching shoes. You're welcome.  :tup:
