Naked is fine, as long as you aren't choking your chicken during the interview...

Now...

If you're doing the PI AT YOUR CURRENT PLACE OF EMPLOYMENT...LOCK THE DOOR!

If it's a cubicle, follow your current company's policy concerning "casual Fridays" - just in case the PI doesn't work out!

Pornstar. LOL!

Actually I was just wondering. You know the trick about imagining the audience naked while making a speech? I was just wondering if it worked the other way around, or maybe how wearing a suit could make you seem a little more assertive on the phone, like how people can sense when you're smiling on the phone.
