I don’t wear perfume to a job interview.
I was told by graduate school career services not to because it could be a distraction.
Not. Your interviewer could have an allergy.
no way! Its possible that they may be allergic, or if you put it on too heavy it may make someone sick… I wouldn’t risk it.
No, you do not.
I would not wear perfume to a job interview. It can be distracting and overpowering.
Not. A lot of people are allergic or very sensitive to fragrances, and others simply don’t like having someone’s lingering perfume wafting around their office/workspace.
No. Imagine that your interview will take place in a very tiny not well ventilated room. Even the faintest smell will be potent in a situation like that. Just smell clean! As in take a shower and don’t have a McDonalds fish sandwhich before you go and you will be fine.
No. Absolutely not. Too many people are sensitive to fragrance, and it would be awful to give the person interviewing you a migraine.
I super allergic, so I never do and hope no one else does 🙂 (that is interviewing me)
never wear perfume or heavily scented lotions to a job interview!
No, the scent of clean is enough. Many workplaces have a “no scent” policy so not wearing perfume shows that you are aware of current workplace issues.
Oh dear and now i’m afraid to admit this – I do. Perhaps that’s where i’m going wrong lol
