    No, not a good idea. Lets start off by saying its never good to wear shorts when looking for a job. It shows you're not really serious.

    Put on some khakis or slacks, a nice button up shirt and look presentable and friendly....

    You aren't serious about the outfit are you?

    I've had 5 jobs brah, and have only had one interview. I try and meet the manager first, talk to them a couple times. Bring in a resume after you and him are familiar with each other, ?????, profit.

    Don't just hand it to someone at customer service, and make the effort to meet them. It goes a long way

    No man, you live in Canada. You have eskimos, and there isn't a part of that country that hasn't had snow on it at one point in time. Canada and Russia are the two coldest countries on earth. Even if its summer time, I doubt it is that hot.

    Heres what im thinking brahs. give me advice.
    Plain white v-neck tee shirt
    Khaki shorts
    Casual shoes

    Walk in to the store, ask them if their manager is in.
    IF they say NO - ask them to give this to their manager (resume)
    IF they say YES - introduce myself to the manager and ASK if their hiring.
    if he says yes, ill say i'd like to apply to any position, review my resume and get back at me, etc then hand him my resume and on to the next one.

    It's hot as fuk out and im walking brahs, i cant wear full suites and shiit. i'll already be sweating enough just walking out there lol.

    bro, no...just no.

    google: "what to wear for a job interview"

    or something. Unless you are applying for job as a pizza delivery guy or something similar, and even then, doesn't hurt to be professional.

    Make sure you name stands out in your resume. No need to color it, but put it in a big font size as a header and center it.

    Plain white v-neck? Have you ever seen an employee dressed in a v-neck? Always dress at least equal to employees. Hope they aren't cargo's too.

    At least you have the shoes right, what are you rocking?
    If they say no, just come back later

    You don't get a second chance to make a first impression and if your first impression from a potential employer is of your in shorts and a v neck tee, you'll never land a job. It won't hurt to at least wear some khakis/shoes and a button up shirt without a tie, since it's so hot. How do you think people in corporate america survive. It's been in the 90s all week in my city and I work in corporate america.....you just suck it up b/c shorts are not allowed

    It doesn't matter what you're applying for. You want to be taken seriously for the job, right? It's all about perception and how you're perceived and what you wanna wear is gonna perceive you as a slacker. If the job that you're applying for has a casual dress code, that's good, but you have to actually land the job first
    New York Football Giants, New York Knicks, New York Yankees, and if I followed hockey, it would be the New York Rangers.....bet you can't guess where i'm from

    Classy business attire? A sport shirt, tie, pants and loafers is not classy business. At most it's business casual. We're not saying go to New York and get a custom suit, we're saying dress like you would if you were going out for dinner with your family

    Doing it like that looks like all you want is a job and money. It doesn't demonstrate that you actually want to do the work. Whenever I see people doing **** like this where I work, I tell them we aren't hiring or I just throw away their resume. And, I'm not the only person that does this.

    Go in there, express interest in the place, and demonstrate you are someone they could definitely use. You won't be "putting in resumes" in as many places as you would like to, but I guarantee you that you will find a job MUCH MUCH faster. Even in this ****hole of an economy, it isn't hard to find a job when you demonstrate your VALUE to someone rather than your desire for just a paycheck.

    Good luck, brah.

    Do you really need a resume for random shiity jobs???

    NOOO..

    and you wouldn't just hand your resume to the assoicates and tell them to give this to their Manager without filing out an application..

    But on the outfit, dude throw on a polo and if you have to wear shorts, DON'T wear plaid shorts...

    I might not go that far. My rule: dress at least 1 but no more than 2 levels above the position you are applying for. If he's only going after low-level jobs, he should come in dressed like his boss or his boss's boss. If I worked in McDonald's and some guy came in wearing a suit and tie looking for a job, I'd be thrown off a bit and cautious with this guy. Like, I might ask myself "why does this well-off man want to flip burgers? Did he **** up so badly at his high-paying job he needs to come here?"
