Fashion Blunders at a Job Interview

TalkShop job interview tipsThe job interview requires one to dress up confidently and look every bit a professional. But many fail this fashion test as it is rarely taught in school. How does one project an image of confidence and professionalism? Sheila Viesca, TalkShop CEO, answers “One can still express a sense of fashion while maintaining the professional look by avoiding these fashion blunders:

1. Wearing too little. Avoid wearing hanging blouses and revealing clothes. Mini- skirts should not go beyond three inches above the knee.

2. Wearing cheap and excessive make-up. These can cake or smear, making any lady look unbecoming.

3. Piling on the bling. Limit use of earrings to one for each ear. Wear only 3-5 pieces of jewelry (earrings, watch, bracelet or necklace, and ring) at a time.

4. Ditch the wild nail polish. Avoid sporting chipped polish. Make sure your nails are trimmed and clean.

5. Don’t wear sports gear, running shoes, sweatshirts, and leggings.

6. Nose and tongue piercings are a no-no. Hide tattoos as well.

7. Stilettos put one’s balance on the line. Stay steady and safe with comfortable pumps.

Viesca recommends, “There is a reason companies come up with a dress code. Job applicants should see to it that, even at the onset, they already project the desired image that suits the organization’s culture.
