I just nailed an online interview for a job that I’ve been trying to get for ages

However, during the interview my dog just would not stop barking. I told the interviewer that I needed just a second to take care of it, and I got up to put my dog in another room.

Although I had a nice dress shirt on to appear professional, I didn’t think it was necessary to put on dress pants since only my upper half would be on screen, I instead opted for a pair of comfortable green athletic shorts and moccasins. I did not realize until after the interview was over that I had accidentally made a fool of myself by showing my entire outfit while walking to my bedroom door. I bet he will have a good laugh with his colleagues about that one.

    btw I don't think your shorts would be a deciding factor

    I did my last interview in a shirt and Pyjama bottoms. Fortunately I didn't have to get up...

    People couldn’t care less about clothing at this point IMHO. As long as you’re wearing something you’re fine.

    Did you realize during interview? You could have said, "Today is 'half casual day' in the office."

    Not a fool at all.

    I think pretty much everybody works half naked now, and just use the nice shirts for meetings
