Is it ok not to wear a suit to a new head hunters office? I am working with one head hunter already. Going to this one to catch the less attractive jobs out there that my main one is not looking at for me. I am still working at my old company but will be unemployed soon. Is it fine to go in Business casual or should I sneak out and put a suit on? Thanks

Are you leaving your current employers office that you go business casual in and then coming back in a suit? Does your current boss know you are looking? It is my opinion that you should always dress to impress even if the person you are interviewing with is in jeans. I guess it depends on the job you are applying for and if it would "red flag" the people you are already working for.

    My boss knows I am looking I was told beg on month I would be let go and that I could use the office as a place to job search. Problem is, I feel like I am still getting work to do and it's making it "uncomfortable" to actually use the place as "my office" etc. They do not want the people to know I am leaving yet. So I would need to go home, change or stuff my suit in a bag. Just wondering what the head hunter would think if I show up in casual. I told him in an email I will be going in business casual. To be honest, I have had a tough 3 weeks. Basiy needed to find a new car(on a dime since I am now unemployed, car died in Dec right before Christmas), new place to live, and put up with the garbage at my work. Still need to get a haircut etc. I tried talking to my current employer and asked if they could let me go earlier because this is just not working out. It's making me miserable and depressed showing up everyday, and then my manager act like I still work there as we have daily meetings with my coworker and we tell him what we are working on. It's insane and dumb, ha ha

    Sounds horrible. Nothing worse than knowing that you are one the way out the door and still have to put on a "Happy" face. And that you still are supposed to do your job and are able to look for another job on company time is weird. Can I ask what type of biz you are in?

    I work in Private Equity I do back office stuff. Our company seems to be like this about everything. Nothing is normal or makes sense. Everyone I have talked to has asked the same question, Why not just give you the month as severance and be done with it. I think it's kind of pointless what is going on. But I think it's to keep morale up since it happened right before Christmas. So they want to space it out I guess. Only logical explanation really.

    Privae equity?...As a layman (or laywoman) I am thinking this is an investment firm. Nice that they want to scatter the blood throughout the months instead of a huge slaughter. I would still go for the suit:)

    I wish you the best of luck What.... I am sure that you will find your footing somewhere. There are a lot of very smart, kind people like you who are going through the same thing. I am very burnt out on CL so probably will not be here very often, but I have met some great people here. If nothing else, I do not feel so alone. Find that suit my new friend :)

    Well to be honest Nice would have been here is your months pay, see you later. Oppurtunity cost is huge, I could be doing alot more other things that stuck inside the office. Especially since I need to move, buy a cheap car, network, find a new place to live etc etc. I think they are doing me a favor, maybe 2 weeks would be a favor, but it was announced the week before christmas, it's been over a month now and it's really draining. But i will go for the suit and take it off before I come back.

    Your best interest Hi What. How is sunny Boston these days? Don't feel pressure to dress up to meet with the recruiter. They will understand if you're meeting with them without your company knowing and will excuse the casual business attire (they don't need to know you're on your way out.) Its very cool that your boss/company told you to use your time at work to find something else. Use it! I realize that workmates will still come to you - rely on you - to be as on top of it as you've always been. If you're able to somehow convey to them that they - lol - should not hold their breath when something is in your in-box... Ditto clients and vendors. Please know that I realize this is really tough but, you've got to look out for yourself! Go ahead and use a fair chunk of your day looking for your next job, okay? Cheers

    Ok - I've changed my mind (lol) You sound really smart and very cool, What. After I posted to your thread, I read you comment about 'what would be nice is getting the paid time off.' Yes. Especially since you've got stuff to do. I've decided that I really hate your company and your boss! LOL. Micromanaging your last days with daily meetings? PULLLEAZZZ-AA! How irritating is that? Okay - my new view on this is... Use the remainder of this stint to be Whattodointheworld, Inc. On those micro meetings? LIE. Totally make b.s. up to cover what you've really been doing all day long. Lie about what? So-and-so ed so you had to look into _______. What are these a*holes going to do? Fire you? LOL! I've enjoyed typing at you. I look forward to seeing you again.
