First off I have to thank you guys for the great podcast. I'm almost caught up through all the back-issues now. And Mark I've listened to your talk at Kellogg a couple of times and am going to try and follow your advice the best I can (smile, handshake, prepared and close).
Here's where I need your help though:
I have an interview for an internal position in a couple weeks on a Friday. The dress code for most of the building on most days is shirts and ties, no suits. On Fridays jeans and sneakers are accepted. The dress code for the group that I'm interviewing with is business casual every day, no ties (no sneakers/no jeans). Being that it is a casual Friday, and the group I am interviewing with is always business casual, what is the appropriate attire? If it was an external company I would wear a suit. But considering that it is an internal position and I'm aware of the dress code and how the VP I'm interviewing with typically dresses (bus casual), should I dress casually? And by casual, I was planning on a nice button down shirt and khakis (no ties no sneakers, etc). Is this appropriate?
The position is an internal software development position in a retail company in the Boston area.
Thanks in advance for any advice you can give.
