I was interviewing for a receptionist role for a client at top end of Collins St, in Melbourne CBD for a corporate receptionist role.
A girl turned up for the interview, knowing we were quite specific in the job advert how professional and corporate presentation was required, in a pair of jeans and runners.
So the question is, how would she think this was acceptable attire? Did her friends or parents not give her advice? And what about school career counsellors, do they not clearly instruct people about what is expected when going for interviews?
Needless to say, the girl was unsuccessful, but I never cease to be amazed by the lack of importance some people seem to place on presentation.
