Just wondering what you all think???... When I interview someone what they wear and their appearance does matter. Does it matter as much as the knowledge or experience they convey? No, but I think it ranks pretty high up. Here are some things I have seen this interview season: Dark sweat stains with a white blouse. I know the person may sweat profusely and Texas is hot. Who knows, maybe her car air conditioner is broken. I tried to overlook it. But everyone on the interview team mentioned it after she left. She seemed very nervous and had trouble making eye contact. Too short of a skirt. A very nice looking young applicant came in with a very short skirt and blouse. The skirt was just covering her when she sat down. There was a lot of leg exposed. She was very personable and giggled a lot. She had two years of experience and was looking for a change (her words). A very severe black suit. It came below the knees and looked big on the applicant. Wondering if she borrowed it? She was very direct and told us that we had found our candidate. She looked directly at the speaker when answering questions and scooted her chair around to make that contact. Nice, professional dress and heals. The applicant was very put together. The dress was just above her knees. The candidate was a new teacher and while she did not answer some questions fully, she was willing to learn. Long flowered skirt and peasant blouse. I felt like I was in the South of France with the curly, long hair cascading down her back. It was a very earthy feel right down to her birkenstock sandals. But she knew her content and loved children.
