unless you do work in a strip club.
But even then you should not hit on the interviewee/er.

So it wouldn't be considered wise to stuff bills in their knickers?

With the economy the way it is... don't mess with their livelihood. Seriously. People just want to work.

Standing in a full designer suit, nice shoes and looking smart while discretly sneeking your finger in your nose and bringing the little bugger in your mouth, many times, thinking no ones see you...

there should still be a difference between an office and strip-club.
No there shouldn't.

"skirts without underwear if you know you have to climb some stairs during the day"

So if you're not climbing any stairs no underwear would be fine? Yay!

nothing says unprofessional like...

hitting the "reply all" button on company wide emails.

I worked in a 20.000 people strong Swiss company before where some low-level early 20s chick in a callcenter once thought she could try to find a buyer for her second hand car by sending out an email to "all" - probably not recognizing that this is not "all of my call center" but in fact the entire company. There were some ten emails after that in the line of "why did I get this email", "stop spamming this inbox" or "do you recognize what you just did?" all through "reply all". I hope they got all fired. Including the IT person who is responsible for the email lists and permissions.
Thats a call girl ,right

No there shouldn't.
well you can always apply for a job in a strip club then. I didn't.

And I find it very interesting that women actually want that kind of attention. Ok, yes, that guy you like is looking. But so are 1500 others. And fantasizing about you later. And you will forever be referred to as "Sally No-Pants". Difficult to believe that this was actually the intended outcome.

Re: Nothing says unprofessional like.......

Nothing says unprofessional like not replying an e-mail within a decent amount of time then requiring a phone call to say, 'Did you get my email.'

If I wanted to discuss it on the phone I would have phoned you initially!

... some cropped party/hiking/beach picture of yours in your linkedin profile. Especially if you are a senior manager.

P.S: If you are over 14, I would really not wear that baseball cap on the profile picture... and maybe a shirt would look better than your favourite 80s band t-shirt...

Re: Nothing says unprofessional like.......

Toes.
Summertime in the office and suddenly everyone's wearing flip-flops, which a) make a really annoying slap-slap sound as people walk around, and b) exposes most of people's feet.
I don't want to see bare toes in the office!
(Oh God, I've been here too long.)

Re: Nothing says unprofessional like.......

having an audible indicator of every new email. In an open plan office. Or even worse, in an all-day workshop with 20 other people.

And when it is gently suggested that maybe you could turn it off during the meeting? Just do it. Stop acting like a spoiled child.
