Personal interviews -Earnestly meeting people one-to-one

Interviews are Sony's opportunity to really get to know you as individuals, and your opportunity to really get to know Sony. We want them to be opportunities to earnestly meet each and every one of you one-to-one. This is why Sony conducts personal interviews.

Job hunting ≠ a suit - Plain-clothes interviews

Sony encourages candidates to wear casual attire when they participate in recruitment events and interviews. We want you to feel relaxed, be yourselves, and express your ideas as your normally do. You can come in a suit if you wish of course, but we'd prefer you to come in normal clothes so you can convey what you're really thinking.
