Maybe bc it was a very international company though (most were not US citizens and were from all over...we didn't get holidays off for this reason), and i think folks from other countries (e.g. many parts of Asia) people are used to dressing up more formally for work..i don't know.

    when i went for the interview at this company, i didn't notice anybody wearing jeans.
    If anyone ever showed up to an interview in jeans, I'd ask them why they were not dressed appropriately and then not take them remotely seriously. I guess it depends on your industry, I work in Corproate America. I'm not saying a suit and tie is required, or a dress. But jeans? Absolutely not. Your attire sends a message.

    Well, I'm glad we took our interview candidates seriously because we hired an excellent engineer!

    I'm an EE in Silicon Valley - clothing runs the gamut. That said, I would never wear jeans to an interview. I dressed up to be the interviewer as well.

    Haha - this is exactly what I was thinking! You could set the standard! OP, I totally hear ya on the pants issue. Esp if your job requires a lot of sitting in front of a computer where the waist cuts into your gut. I've actually gotten dizzy before from waistbands cutting into my midsection even though they are the right size because when I sit, everything in my gut protrudes out in the front due to the diastasis and it's really uncomfortable. Skirts and dresses are so much more comfortable when you are dealing with a mummy tummy. I think it's a cute skirt, esp for your sitting in front of a computer days.
