    I have a job 'briefing session', where 'I will be given information about the job's role and the opportunity to apply for it if I am interested' on Thursday.

    I was thinking that I should wear a shirt and tie with trousers, even though it doesn't say it is an interview. What would you guys advise?

    Suit Up!
    Wouldn't a suit be a bit too much?

    I'd go with a suit and then you can always take the jacket off if you feel that it is overkill. It's always a good idea to look smart.

    If in doubt, wear a suit.

    Better to be too smart than too casual. Plus a suit is pretty much expected before you've been made a job offer or unless otherwise specified.

    Whats the job?
    Personally I only wear a suit if it's a necessity otherwise it's just overkill...

    I would usually wear black trousers, brown/black dress shoes and then a cream/white shirt under a black v neck. It's simple and smart and can pretty much be fit for most occasions.

    I actually bumped into Gok Wan (i.e. literally, I was exiting a Starbucks as he was entering) the other day. Thought he was an ugly woman at first :indiff:

    Also his name is an anagram for Go Wank :sogood:
