What Not to Wear to a Job Interview

Your job interview is your opportunity to put your best foot forward.  It is your time to let your best self shine.  However, there is a tendency for some job seekers to express themselves too openly and forget that initial impressions of other people may be biased and unfair and that it is best to be on the safe and decent side.


TalkShop CEO Sheila Viesca advises job applicants on the potential harm the following items may create based on the initial impression they communicate to the potential employer:

  1. Gaudy accessories – non – performer
  2. Flashy color – loud mouth
  3. Mismatched colors – careless
  4. Body odor – insensitive
  5. Extremely high heels – insecure
  6. Unibrow – indifferent
  7. Oily face – disorganized
  8. Multicolored hair – uninteresting
  9. Over-sized bag – tentative
  10. Unbuttoned shirt or low neckline – loose
  11. Chipped nails – irresponsible
  12. Worn shoes – incapable

These  items may not in any way reflect who you really are.  It can very well be a case of you getting up on the wrong side of the bed that day when you are scheduled for an interview.  However, if that is the case when you have to attend this important judgement day, any employer will assume that you are not capable of doing any better during the regular days when you are already working with the company.

Needless to say, if you own these pieces of items, throw them away as soon as you are done reading this article.

As in now.

And then schedule your free evaluation with TalkShop for the much needed confidence boost and corporate image upgrade from the country’s best trainers and interviewers.
