Anyone? Bueller?
So did no one else get the $50 off if you spend $150 coupon? I got that last week, but no sign of a 40% one.
Yeah, important distinction. At the little 30 minute conference interview/meet-and-greet things, a jacket and tie at a minimum was standard. Probably about 50% of candidates we met were in suits, the rest in a jacket at a minimum (some with ties, some without). I don't think any male we met was without a jacket. At formal campus interviews, its pretty much 100% suits for the job talk. Side note: I've taken two candidates out to dinner in the last week. Neither of...
From my perspective anything that involves a jacket and a tie resolves to "suit" in the mind of those doing the interviewing.
Late on the response, but, while I wouldn't agree with the "pathetic" comment, I can understand a little about the aversion to wearing suits at a conference.

As a former waiter at TGI Fridays, that movie brings back some cringe memories from the 1980s.
Combined with functional button holes. Functional cuff buttons rule out so many potential purchases for me.......le sigh.
So, a few observations. Context: professor and now an administrator in a business school in the southeast. There is definitely a status hierarchy within my school. Senior level administrators (Deans and Associate Deans) almost exclusively wear suits. Mid-tier administrators (e.g., department chairs) tend to wear odd jackets and ties. Faculty dress in a wide range, although the variance is restricted much more in, say, the humanities. While we have the occasional...
