Thread: How to dress for an apprenticeship interview

    Default How to dress for an apprenticeship interview

    A friend of mine mentioned that his son was going to a plumbing apprenticeship comittee interview this week and wasn't sure how to dress. Is a suit and tie too formal? I argued that it's highly competitive and looks matter, but they fear that looking "too" professional will make the comittee think that you don't know what you're in for as an apprentice and will hesitate the first time they hand you a shovel or tell you to clean out a clogged sewer pipe. What do you pros think?

    Talking normal attire.....

    a suit and tie is going waaay overboard for plumbing...


    just dress good so they can know what to expect

    perhaps some dockers, and a nice shirt.....something
    like you would wear out on a date ....

    at least you will show that you can basically dress yourself up ok.....
    ------------------------------------------------------

    its hard to believe but I have had dumbasses
    walk into my office to apply for a job before
    with literally half their ass hanging out of their soiled pants....

    and they looked like they had not shaved or bathed in a
    month... wanting $25 per hour


    If they would have come in with a suit and tie,
    I would have known they were still wet behind the ears,,,,



    but when they come in dressed like crap and acting like

    "what you see is what you are gonna get"

    that is much, much worse...



    so....tell him to clean up and just be yourself,

    but dont show butt-crack......on the first date..

    You could dress like this successful plumber.






    After a while of being in the buisness he may find him self dressed like this.

    In that case, I can answer that, stilettoes are the only way to go.

    Default boots

    It wouldn't make any difference. You would not look good in them anyway.
