    Difficult one - I have to say that for interviews I usually 'suit and boot' simply cause I want to make a good first impression and my interview suit helps me get in the mind-set for the interview. Good luck!
  2. If you can't make an effort for an interview, god help you on a day to day basis. So get yourself dressed to impress.
  3. I wasnt trying to suggest that - i didnt know how men dress in the primary sector (i.e. if different to secondary)

    But now i do - thank you
  4. It was written with a smile.
  5. Definitely dressed to impress! We had a few male teachers come for interviews at our school and one of them stood out because he looked so smart. I think it is very important to create a good first impression.
  6. Super thanks for the advice will dress like i do when i go tutoring (shirt tie and suit)

    I do have another question - part of my interview is an in-tray exercise (i had a background look at this and it seems to be a role play task? - can anyone clarify that for me)
  7. Thanks for the smart dress advice - i got the job :D
