I applied for season work at Target, K-Mart, MicroCenter and a few others two weeks ago.
It’s been two weeks and I failed to get hired. Now I have a lot of education and need a full time job, but I’ll take what I can get, to get by
The temp agencies I’ve worked for have said, “If you’re overqualified, you’ll go to the end of the list.”
But I figured if I am applying for these, for lack of a better word, “Low level” jobs and said “I just want it as an extra job for the holidays” I’d have a better chance. After all everyone needs extra spending money for the holidays.
I was talking to someone and they suggested that perhaps I was overdressed. I have a typical interview suit which is black and standard. I always wear a suit to an interview regardless, I figure better to be overdressed than not enough.
So the question is, if you’re going for a part time job, like at Target or even Burger King, do you need a suit for your interview? If not what would you wear to an interview a “low level” type job.
I realize there are no right or wrong answers, but I was just wondering.
