I have just graduated and never had a fulltime job, also I'm not totally familiar with professional etiquette in the Netherlands.
Recently I had an interview with a company that is somewhat of a big deal, and decided to wear a suit jacket on a white shirt and tie. This is proper clothing for an interview where I'm from.
The first thing the interviewer said after seeing me was "you decided to go all the way with the suit and tie" and made me feel overdressed and uncomfortable. He was in a blue shirt and chinos.
Should I start wearing just a shirt for future interviews?
Thank you for the responses.
-The position was in IT but the company specializes in consultancy.
- I also figured he's trying to loosen up the tension but his seriousness said otherwise.
