This is the first, and last, thing Clinton Kelly and I will disagree on – what to wear to work in a tech environment. While he thinks it doesn’t matter what those techies wear, I must disagree. Even if you are just pausing your World of Warcraft game in order to come fix my computer, that doesn’t mean you can’t impress me with the way you look.
I know you may not really feel like making the extra effort when you’re only stepping out of your house for an hour and just returning to sit on the couch to play video games. But the people you see will notice that you actually took care to make that effort, and that will make you stand out in their eyes.
Besides, who knows what your client could look like? What if it’s Mariah Carey calling? May as well be a hot nerd.
