It's not just about wearing suits or having your hair cut a certain way - it's also about being able to work well with others on teams, being able to take feedback without feeling attacked, and knowing when it's appropriate for you to speak up.
The reality is that if you don't fit into what they already have at the firm then chances are they won't hire you.
