Dear Experts, Hose or no hose? What's the rules on panty hose for an interview? My mom says you have to wear them, but I think that's just crazy. Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question:Q#261 No set rule. If co. culture dictates pantyhose, wear them. If more casual & you're comfortable no need. (@dawnbugni) Q#261 Footnote: I'm old school & would rather see U overdressed than under dressed. Err on side of caution. (@dawnbugni) Q#261 I'd never wear pantyhose to an interview. Certainly not qualified to answer this one. (@beneubanks) Q#261 Hose/no hose generally not a deal breaker; is abt professional, crisp, somewhat conservative presentation. (@ValueIntoWords) Q#261 Nude pantyhose if ur wearing a skirt. In the hot weather, closed toe shoes with knee length skirt and no hose is ok. (@DebraWheatman) Q#261 Over 80 degrees, I say 'no' to panty hose, BUT then make shoes closed-toe and the skirt knee-length. (@jtodonnell) Q#261 There is no "hose rule", just ensure that whatever you wear is professional and presentable. (@gradversity) Q#261 Hose? You must! When in doubt take them out! You'll never go wrong with them, you may without. (@RTResumePro) Q#261 I vote 4 nude pantyhose unless u KNOW it's OK not 2 wear; looks more prof'l; option is pants suit.

How do you know if you understand something?

I am a non-technical person working in an IT company. My colleagues will often tell me something technical. Sometimes I understand what they are saying.
