Snakes and Ladders has the results of a survey of British headhunters and recruiters. Apparently, what to wear is the least of some people’s problems:
Almost 50 per cent of recruiters questioned for the poll say that employers have told them that some candidates showed poor levels of personal hygiene.
Other anecdotes culled from the survey include:
*A candidate answering a question about computing skills with the claim that he was proficient on a Sony Playstation;
*Another job-seeker, asked to identify his or her greatest weakness, answered “my dishonesty”; and
*The applicant who decided that dressing to impress meant taking a black-tie approach; she arrived at her interview wearing a ballgown.
Maybe this is just a British thing.
