    I'm doing alright and thank you. All I did was fill out the application, specified that I had a sociology degree, and had good references (one of them worked for DSS as well a while back). I just hope I do a good job; I'm nervous.

    Just show up and get a sense for what flies in your office. Do that for 6 months and then wear whatever you want.

    GOV needs more sociology/behavioral science cats in their programs because we few in many these days. You’ll probably be around a lot of women especially in human services/adolescents. Be very careful with humor and don’t smash your colleagues. Wear some nice cologne too (don’t overspray).

    Understandable, I still hope to one day go to law school but for right now this is great. Thank you for the advice and don't worry I won't do that/overspray:wink:

    Thank you, I appreciate it. This is a stepping stone in life for me and I just want to take it seriously since I'm working for the state.

    Can’t get anymore serious looking than wearing skinny chinos and vans. You should rise up the ranks pretty quickly. Congrats.

    This. Social work is hell. You're gonna have bigger fish to fry than selecting pants.

    Congrats and good luck though. Noble gig, but it's probably gonna destroy any faith you have in humans when you see how they treat kids.

    You’ll be fine. I would wear shoes first day or even loafers to get a lay of the land. Polo should be good to go.

    Just take whatever test you need to take for a given position and apply apply apply. If you can though I'd try finding a job elsewhere. Been with the state almost 3 years here in Sacramento and I have not enjoyed one day of it.

    Be good at your job and it won't matter what you wear.

    You think LeBron thinks about his dress code whilE working?

    No.

    Neither should you.

    I'd personally wear dress shoes first when starting a new office job.

    Bruh, 99.9% Business Casual is the answer. Even if it isn't, it is. Do we need to sticky this?!?

    I dont understand how someone gets an office job and asks about wearing vans to work on the first day.
