    I think something that has help me back is my clothes (being poor lol), so this week I spent £235 quid on a rather spiffing suit (which was in a sale), for an interview this dinnertime (today).

    Sadly the agency have not arranged with the HR person who allegedly is now on holiday so I find myself with an expensive suit, and no where to go.

    Still least I have it for the next interview.

    Job hunt is not going to plan lol.

    The only other places i can think that people who wear suits are funerals and strip clubs.

    I have no funerals planned :S

    Yikes £235!! :| least you get to wear it to your next interview :D

    To my last interview, I wore cheap 'school' type trousers and shirt and tie combo from ASDA, not exceeding £20 lol

    Maybe it's due to my immaculate charm, handsome looks and graceful aura i have about me eh...

    Don't know who said it first but "dress for the job you want, not the job you have."

    EDIT: And someone in downtown Manhattan once told me "you can't get the time of day around here without pinstripes and wingtips."
