Are you dumb? When you untuck your shirt at the end of the day does it still look as crisp after your ironed it?

Or, do your Orangutan arms not get wrinkles set into the sleeves? Are you actually working or do you show up at your office, in your attire and just stand for 'x' hours with your arms still next to your side?

You guys tripping about "dressing up" are plain silly. As if a tie and shirt is considered dressing up.

"Oh no, I have to put on some pants today and tuck in my shirt!?" JFC

Depending on how things shake out could be looking at working on the corporate sustainability side of big companies, I'm a manager at a research institute here that does a lot of corp sust stuff so I've got a good network at a few places

Tech has always intrigued/interested me but I lack any technical background, and non-eng internships are very hard to come by from what I've found

So basically I have no idea what field I'm going into haha

i'm also going through the process of trying to land a consulting internship after realizing that research wasn't going to cut it as a career path. figure i can do this for a few years, go get an mba, then try and land a position on the business side of a pharma company. seems like a solid enough plan.

Ah, cool cool. I have some friends who ended up going down that path and really enjoy it, hopefully you enjoy Fermi problems and the interviews are going well for you!

 

Corporate sustainability is stuff like handling transparency, integrating with local community, and avoiding your brand image becoming Anderson Consulting?

 

Tech is (from my perspective) a weird combination of meritocracy, acceptance of non-traditional credentials, and knowing-a-guy-who-has-this-friend-who's-startup-just-got-funded-by-this-firm-who-needs-a-guy. If you've any talent for marketing or bizdev and have even a tiny portfolio, you might try looking at KPCB's Fellows Program, Greylock Venture's University Recruiting, or a16z's new uni program. Once you're in the fold, so to speak, it gets much easier to figure out the next step, and even if something doesn't work out the chances of getting a referral to somewhere that's a better match is high.

RE: bizcas

 

What do I tell my tailor to do if I want my oxfords fixed so I don't have a sharkfin sticking out a foot from my back when I tuck in my shirt, or a Balenciaga egg jacket-esque silhouette when untucked.

Unless its denim business casual I think I'd too rather do suits than be in khaki-polo hell. I might actually get a tech job in business dress environment soon and it might be a tough transition at first but I figure I'll stock up on H&M/Uniqlo suits that I can throw onto the backseat as soon as I clock out everyday. Tough part will be getting shoes without getting sucked into CM wormhole.

you need darts in the back, and probably narrow in the waist/hips. if a shirt is gonna fit real slim when tucked it should pull a little when it's untucked.

Business casual is completely defined by your environment.  

 

A lot of places, biz cas means you just go 1 notch below a suit (no jacket or tie, but everything else).  

 

But it can also mean you can wear jeans a button up, no problem--just depends on your corporate culture.

and uniqlo trousers have a terrible fit and are junk quality. would rather buy jcrew off ebay, or go MTM.

Where are you paying $40 for MTM?

maybe i'm just jaded because business casual is done so bad so often. schneider would actually be really really cool to wear in the office.

I said the same thing and now i have to wear a suit 5 days a week. it gets old, trust me.

If I could just ditch the tie, I'd be okay with everything else though. Goddamn I hate ties.

It's the glados voice actress but apparently they are changing the voice slightly for the actual movie.
