I have a job interview on Thursday, but here’s the thing … it isn’t really a proper interview.
Here’s the deal … I’m playing in a side-project band with some old friends of my brother-in-law. One of those old friends is the director of a local vocational/rehab center. He mentioned that he might be able to get me some hours working with developmentally challenged folks as a sort of living skills coach (take a client out, give him the confidence needed to ride the bus, shop for groceries, that kind of stuff).
So, he’s arranged for me a meeting with a woman at the center who will go over the training I’d need and what sort of work I’d be doing, etc. I’m lead to believe that the work environment itself is very casual – I wouldn’t be wearing a tie to ride the bus – but I’ve always held to that maxim: you always wear a suit to a job interview.
I’m just not sure if this is a proper interview, and whether or not a suit would be over-dressing for the occasion.
I’ll be talking to my friend who helped set up the meeting for his opinion, but I’m curious as to what the Teeming Millions think.
