    Hi, I submitted my apple store resume for the specialist position online just today. However, I read online that somebody went and introduced himself to the manager just to get on a name to face basis. Is this a good idea? Also, what would I wear? A shirt and tie? Or would I dress like a specialist? Thanks!

    Don't go out of your way to meet them prior to the interview. That'll come off weird and creepy. Dress nice. Slacks or khakis. Nice shoes. Button down shirt and tie. Better to be over dressed than under.

    I was actually planning on going in with a collared shirt and khakis since its not an official interview. Is the tie acceptable even though it's not an interview. Sorry ,I'm new to this.

    I think you're over thinking the whole "what should i wear thing" -- this isn't an interview; go dressed how you would normally dress. If your normal attire is sweatpants and a hoodie, then you might want to upgrade to Jeans and a nice shirt, but don't go in wearing a shirt and tie with khakis.

    Making a first impression rarely has to do with clothing - it's more about how you come across in conversation. You'll get one, maybe 2 minutes max time with the manager. Make it count. Be transparent about the fact you've applied, let him know how much you'd love the opportunity to interview, and just mention you're there checking out a new product or something and just had to go over and introduce yourself. Let him steer the conversation from there.

    Good luck.

    Which is why I qualified the statement saying jeans and a nice shirt is at the minimum what should be worn. :)
