up to an interview improperly dressed is the top reason employers wouldn’t give
a candidate the job, according to a new survey.
research, by law firm Peninsula, found that dressing too casually, such as
arriving with a top button undone, was the number one turn-off for bosses.
also found that only 12 per cent of employers polled realised that they could
be taken to employment tribunal for discriminating at an interview.
study of 5,224 businesses across the UK asked managers to name the one aspect
of interview behaviour they disliked the most.
top 5 turn-offs:
26 per cent: improper dress for an interview
19 per cent: lateness
15 per cent: disproportionate interest in salary
11 per cent: being cynical about colleagues
9 per cent: poor handshake
