Default What To Wear?

I have applied for some jobs in the mountains for the Australian 2013 winter season and was thinking that if I am lucky enough to get an interview, what do I wear? Do I go the office job interview route (full on suit and tie) or what?

well if you're applying to the adventure tourism industry, then don't do the suit. Clean hiking shoes, khakis, flannel shirt, clean shave, well groomed, etc. Look the part. It all depends on the company and industry.

First of all, your fucking avatar fucking rules. A ducks fan in Australia - fuck yeah.

Second, overdressing never hurt.

I would NOT wear hiking shoes and a flannel...

Just dress...nice, take it seriously.

Yeah I'd say a collared shirt (golf shirt) should be a minimum dress code for any interview unless you're applying for a labour/operator position. Nothing wrong with showing up in decent pants and shoes too. If you're dressed just a little nicer than everyone else in the office, people will notice in a good way. Dress like a bum and I wouldn't hire you.

I'm also picky with resumes too. Can't figure out how to use a resume template that organizes things into nice neat sections with bold headers etc? Fair enough. Can't get somebody to HELP you do the above? No job for you!

edit: here's another funny one. I work in the construction industry and we hire labourers and operators. One resume came in and the "objective" was "to get a job in the food industry"... We were only to kind to oblige by throwing out his resume!

No suit and tie unless you are interviewing for bank/gov or some other formal organization.

Just get a nice shirt/modern pants/dress shoes and maybe a blazer if you are going for tourism industry.

Thanks for the advice guys! I think I'm going to go with a long sleeved shirt, slacks and leather shoes just to be safe. God I hope I manage to get a job in the mountains. It would be such an awesome experience
