Bad Breath Could Kill That Promotion
Want a promotion, but can’t figure out why you’re not getting one? It could be that tattoo on your arm, or (please stand back)…. your bad breath. A new survey from CareerBuilder shows that employers consider personal attributes when making promotion decisions.
Employers gave these reasons when asked what would make them less likely to give a promotion:
- Piercings 37%
- Bad breath 34%
- Visible tattoo 31%
- Wrinkled clothes 31%
- Messy hair 29%
- Too much perfume or cologne 26%
- Too much makeup 22%
- Messy office or cubicle 19%
- Chewed fingernails 10%
- Too suntanned 4%
