    I have an interview in a week and a half or so for an entry-level management/senior level IT position with the Libraries department at a University of California campus. I'm a little bit at a loss for what to wear to it.. a suit seems much too formal for a UC job at that level, but I don't want to don the typical blue dress shirt/tan khaki uniform of the IT professional... thoughts?

    Maybe its my banker mentality talking here, but I cannot fathom going to a job interview in anything other than a suit. What you wear to work is a different story, but for the interview I would say go with the suit.

    You're not dressing for the job (yet.), you're dressing for an interview. They are different.. For the interview wear a suit, navy or gray, white shirt, tie, socks and appropriate shoes.

    And good luck.
