    I wouldn't have come up with the open-toed shoes. As long as they're not sneakers or *!$^$&* flip-flops (and yes, I've interviewed someone who showed up in flip-flops) then I'm not sure I'd ever notice shoes.

    Open toed shoes are one of my husband's pet peeves, won't hire anyone who wears them. Of course he is hiring engineering and finance professionals.

    I agree, and I hire engineers, sales and executives.

    Why? What message do open-toed shoes send? I'm not disputing that there is one, I'm just not aware of it.

    I mean I have a personal distaste for flip-flops as I just consider them the ultimate expression of casualness. They're one itty bitty step away from Kermit the Frog house slippers to me. Is it the same with open-toed women's shoes?

    They don't "match" professional attire.

    Yes in deed, people have to think conservative when they are dressing for an interview.

    If she is showing enough cleavage no one will ever notice the shoes.

    Yup. How I knew this, I'm not sure.

    Just basically unspoken do's and don'ts of interviewing. You have to dress for success because the first image you present can kill your opportunity. To me it kind of expresses a laziness and someone that does not put much thought into the image they present. Different managers have different pet peeves, so why expose your feet unless you're interviewing with Andy Reid.

    I think you mean Rex Ryan, unless Andy Reid is a closet foot fetishist as well.

    Oh yeah, some weird confusion between the Eagles and the Ryan's otherwise known as football dyslexia. :laugh:

    It happens. When I started writing Rex, I almost finished with "Grossman." :laugh:
