You guys and your suit crap and just spouting bullshit that people have told you.  When interviewing for software engineering positions many places including Google and Microsoft discourage wearing of suits.
lol :lol:

And here I always thought nerds liked wearing suits. I guess it's just khaki pants, white button down shirts, pocket protectors and suspenders. The jacket must just be too uncomfortable.

Seems like a lot of eng and arch dipshits on this board.  Always wondered what college would be like if my grade depended on how well I could trace over someone elses drawings and then have to try and take a test on that material.  Seems like a lot of self-inflicted pressure, the worry of getting caught cheating and expelled, and having to take a test on material you never bothered to learn.

That's because software engineers are mutant slobs.  No one wants to interview a guy wearing a suit he found in his dead grandpa's closet, that's been in a vacuum bag for 14 years.  It smells much worse than just a regular software engineer.

Tom Roberts taught the worst class I've ever taken, but he's not really a professor, so I don't know if that counts.

That professional development crap? (for engineers)

PPD (DEN325). Worst class on earth.

Yea that class was pointless for someone born with common sense.  Great for the nerds who thought khaki pants, white socks, and brown shoes were acceptable to wear in a job interview.

I have never worn a suit to an interview and gotten a number of offers.  Its an interview not a fashion show.  That is what I tell any candidate I interview at my current job, nobody cares if you own a suit.

They may not care, but for many larger companies this is not true.  Interview for a position at a large company wearing khaki's and a polo, and lets see if they pick you over the guy with the exact same credentials who wore a suit and tie. 

Also, congrats that your company looks past all that.  It's not the common.  If this were a perfect world, people could walk into an interview showing all their tats and piercings without the interviewer using it as judging criteria. 


You will never get a job that you aren't qualified for by looking great, but could easily lose the opportunity for one you are qualified for by being under dressed.  Every man should own a suit irregardless of the need for one in an interview. 

People who use the made up word "irregardless" should be unemployed.

Never had Knox for studio. Heard some horror stories though. Liked him well enough in computing.

My favorites-

Hoag- Most thought he was crazy. Thought his seminar was great. Studio was pretty good.
Howe- Awesome professor.
Torgier- Badass. Pure badass.

never had hoag for studio, would've loved though.
Howe wasn't there before I graduated.
I almost wrote the exact same thing about Torgeir Norheim.   Honestly though, he didn't teach me as much about design as he did about how to look goddamn amazing while designing.

I learned quite a bit from Torgeir. It was strange though. It's almost like he beat the design sense into me instead of just politely telling me.

I will say this. Everyone loves Bob and Wendy. Me? Not. A. Fan.

I really like Dr. Ann Stahlheim-Smith.  Doubt she's still teaching (or even living) though, she was pretty damn old ballsy.

He must have been way overqualified if he wore a suit to an interview and STILL got the job.  Google must be hiring basically anyone nowadays.

I too know someone who works for Google in Boulder, never worn a suit.  You guys are sure butt-hurt about having to wear suits when I don't have to and still get the job  :users:

I think clams mumped things up for all of us bad when he threw out the last guy we tried to interview for the goEMAW tech position before the interview even started just because the applicant was wearing khakis and a short-sleeve dress shirt (no tie).

don't feel stupid for wearing the suit.  you should feel embarassed for your fellow co-workers who somehow were able to get the job w/o wearing suits.

Also, not having the no-suit-tech-guy on board is why the board was all mumped up 20 minutes ago.
