Halitosis AKA Bad Breath. It comes in many forms, coffee, cigarette, onion, curry … and none of them good. Consider sitting in a small interview room for 45 minutes, then consider taking a few seconds before your interview to pop in a mint of some sort. Please, don’t chew gum in to the interview what ever you do. If nerves get the best of you and forgetting to dispose of the gum don’t hesitate to ask the interviewer if you can dispose of your gum, and apologize. The best chance of not having to worry about this, buy mints, not gum. Also fresh breath sprays work well. Travel bottles of mouthwash you can find, and fit easily in a pocket or laptop bag. A smile says alot about you, so keep it Fresh.
Let’s go with a resounding NO. The workplace is considered to be a professional environment, and is not the place for racy or risky costumes. Should your environment allow or even promote costumes, try to stay on the conservative side. Wearing something token Halloween is also an option, an orange shirt, pumpkin earrings or costume hat/other accessories.
If you are really feeling the festive spirit, celebrate with friends outside of work, and make sure to keep those risky pics off of Facebook if you have an open profile!
