Don't get disqualified for a job by making these interview mishaps. See our beauty tips
Tip 1: Keep sweat in checkA hiring manager recalls, "One time, I interviewed a guy who just reeked of body odor. I didn't know whether he just happened to forget deodorant that day, or if he was just a generally stinky guy, but it was so distracting it sort of killed his chances."
A human resources specialist agrees saying, "Once I had a candidate who was so nervous they broke out into a rash during the interview. At one point there was so much sweat on their brow, I wanted to hand them a towel."
Tip: We obviously can't help our natural pheromones, but that's what a good bar of soap and deodorant is for -- a clean, natural (read: not perfume-y) scent is what you want. Also, if you tend to perspire when you're nervous, keep a hanky in your purse to dab away sweat before going in. Don't use Kleenex as it may leave bits of tissue on your face … not a pretty sight.
And if you tend to get oily, keep blotting papers in your purse to dab your t-zone area right before going into the office. Try Bobbi Brown Blotting Papers, $20, which comes with a handy mirror.
