    I say that closed-toed shoes/pumps are more professional (prefer pumps). Keep them basic, short-mid heel and nude or black.

    I know my response is way overdue, but I'd recommend closed-toe shoes for both men and women who want to dress appropriately for job interviews.

    For the few times that I've chosen a pair of open-toe shoes to an interview, I always get a basic pedicure beforehand to ensure my feet and toes are as presentable-looking as possible. And, one time, I did notice the interviewer staring at my shoes, so I suppose footwear does matter to some.

    I would like opinions please. I had a job interview recently and one of the questions was" How would you deal with an unhappy patient or family member?". My answer was that I would sit down with them and listen to their concerns and come up with a plan of action. This was before I read an article today on soft skills so I guess I could have elaborated a little. Did I give the right answer?

    Sounds good to me. I also would have mentioned something about "wowing" the patient. Managers and interviewers love that type of terminology.
