Quit asking Irrelevant questions. Its not about wearing trousers or not, Its about what you have in your head.

if its about what you have in your head, why not wear Bikini or open back and bum shot to an interview..

Is it the trouser that will do the job or what you have upstair? For me as an employer I don't care what am after is what she can offer for the progress of my business.
If you're the boss of a well established firm and a lady comes for an interview dressed like a rastafarian, you mean you won't mind the dressing undecided

To be on a safer side, stay away from trouser. Opportunity lost may never be regained.

Nigeria has a long way to go, so in 2016 wearing formal trousers for a job interview is still something to be debated about

Depends on the many things eg the type of job, the type of trouser wink, and most importantly the level of religious fanaticism of the interviewer shocked Since the most important of these factors is not within your control I would say just go buy better pencil or A line skirt wear. After the interview you fit throway the skirt na you sabi.

Please house, I need your opinion on the above topic. Say your reasons for or against the topic. Can it disqualify a lady from getting the job? Tnx
To avoid the long stories , why don't you go casual .
My aunt ; I've seen her go for an interview twice luckily she got those jobs and she's with another company right now .
Maybe her dress code also gave her the job , you never can tell .
As a pal I'll advise you to go for a skirt and maybe a suit to match too ...
Hope you get the job ...
Bless up !

Nobody mentioned anything about bikini here. Am making reference to the above post which I categorically deciphered as irrelevant.

Hello, putting trousers as a lady for job interview may be right and may be wrong if you come across depper life HRs.

My advise is, put on skirt to avoid being disqualified. Though, HR will just tell you "they will get back at you" and will not tell you that you were disqualified for putting on trousers as a lady.

Moreover, let your conscience judge you. If not that this world is full of iniquity, girls is not suppose to put on boys' garment.

I hope this helps.

And where is this boys garment that girls wear specified in the Bible? Giving the bible your own interpretation..... Remember, do not err

my sister, ideally it shouldn't matter. but we are in a world where people are judged by little things that really don't matter. to avoid stories that touch I would advice you wear a skirt or a gown . one of my teachers in secondary school then does not answer greeting from women in trousers. imagine if he is ur interviewer its just for a day.
It's not just for a day if you plan on working in that company.
Any company you can't wear a trouser to for an interview is not the kind of place you want to work in because if a trouser would disqualify you from getting the job, then a trouser would make your life miserable if you work there and wear one.
Re: Is It Good For A Lady To Wear Trouser To An Interview? by Nobody: 3:19pm On Feb 23, 2016
It is good, but what's even better is for her to wear 'C' string...no need for interview cheesy
Re: Is It Good For A Lady To Wear Trouser To An Interview? by FreeBoss: 3:20pm On Feb 23, 2016
It depends on the organisation. If it is a brothel, wearing trouser will earn you more points. Ditto the so-called new generation banks.

It's not wrong but to be on the safe side, don't wear it cause you don't know whom your interviewers are.
Wisdom is profitable to direct.....
Re: Is It Good For A Lady To Wear Trouser To An Interview? by omonnakoda: 3:33pm On Feb 23, 2016
If it is a big company try and visit their premises to see how their female staff dress. If it is a professional job like lawyer accountant doctor then presumably you are a member of that profession and aware of the professional culture and ethic. To be honest this is an unintelligent and immature question/thread
Go to the place of interview and make discreet investigations
If you are serious about the interview you should have taken time to visit anyway as part of your interview preparation
Let me put it like this with specific regard to the interview place .If you do not know the answer to that question you do not deserve to get the job!!
Re: Is It Good For A Lady To Wear Trouser To An Interview? by Nobody: 3:38pm On Feb 23, 2016
when i finished studies and was seriously looking for job, i always wear well tailored skirt suit... Dress my best with good pointis shoes...

But years down the line, i really dont care anymore, Jeans/pant trouser with shirt and black jacket..... If my mood is so right i manage to wear suit... I don't even have any complete suit again grin so my mood can never be right..

No dear. It won't. Adopt the corporate look or Business Casual look (depending on the company). So pant suit or shift dress and jacket, skirt and jacket - all with a mono colored shirt or spaghetti top underneath. Goodluck!

omonnakoda, you are far to hard on her. She may be fresh out of school and know nothing about such culture in Corporate Nigeria. We all gain knowledge a day, a time. Indulge her while she takes her own baby steps. wink
Re: Is It Good For A Lady To Wear Trouser To An Interview? by Nobody: 3:55pm On Feb 23, 2016
Just go on skirt... You know why?

What if it is a Job you see so much prospect in, Good pay, nice benefits, etc... And you put on a trouser and looking sharp.......

Only to discover that the interviewer is a Deeperlife, Mountain of fire, Choosen member, they see the person as Irresponsible or sinner.
So go with skirt, nobody is against it!!

Thanks.

i really won't support that particularly if you happen to have a very large 'behind' which you may want to keep to yourself during that interview

Nairaland is not the place to learn .There must be some role model in her family,street,neighbourhood etc .This does not seem sincere to me.Not everything should be a thread on Nairaland.

Why would they make a deeper life person as part of an interview panel when they know the person would be judging an irrelevant item? undecided
