Summer Job!

<p>When you apply for jobs, do you bring a resume? I'm thinking of working at a bank, law office, or something like that. And if so, do you bring a coverletter and the whole nine yards? I'm really confused...</p>

<p>A lot of jobs don't require it, but it looks more professional regardless of where you want to go.</p>

<p>If its a job like that, you should bring a resume.</p>

<p>They'll usually ask, but if its a job like a bank, law office, etc, bring one anyways. A coverletter might be over the top, but thats just me.</p>

<p>If its a clothing or retail place, you shouldn't have to worry.</p>

<p>The people will tell you if you need a resume usually. However, the places I've been applying to didnt require one (Crowne Plaza, Marriott)</p>

<p>thanks for the help!
what about for the interview? what should you wear? i have an interview for a law office with the top attorney. do i wear an entire suit?</p>

<p>you're better off being over dressed than under.</p>

<p>thanks for the reply!
but do you think a full on suit would be too much?</p>

<p>what does everyone else at the office wear?</p>

<p>the receptionist wears jeans. nice jeans, but jeans.
i saw someone else wears black pants and a blouse.
i'm not sure though, since it's an interview, should i be dressed more formally than they are?</p>
