Do you think I destroyed my chances of getting this job?

I'm concerned about the clothes I wore to this interview, being designer jeans, button down short sleeve shirt, and a nike wind breaker. I thought it looked tight, but I don't know. What do you think YA ?

He can't even be bothered putting on a suit" but you never know. You just have to keep on hoping... More

I don't know where you guys are getting the idea that it's appropriate to ever dress casually to a job interview. YES, this could hurt your chances, as it is very unprofessional. Even if the dress code is casual, at least dress business casual for the interview. It shows you actually, you know, care about getting... More
