I think women in lower paid jobs ie w processing, receptionists etc, do prob get chosen because of their looks a lot, however professional women often get chosen depending on their qualifications and skills
Much as I hate to admit this,YES!!!IN SO MANY CASES!!!! I am though,very proud to admit that I have been given every single job I have ever applied for over the years!!! My skills and personality have been what I believe are my best assets,NOT my looks!!!
Scanning the jobs and qualifications on the linked in profiles its is clear that good looking women get high ranking jobs with out any university degrees. As for the rest of them they need to study. I suppose that may change as women move into management roles and make employment decisions but it is the case currently.
I do think that this is true too. Good looking people get picked first and especially if skills are the same. Where it matters too, as said above, receptions, sales etc, We do still "judge" looks first and then tell ourselves that it doesn't really matter LOL
Unfortunately, yes. Which is why your resume should now contain a photograph.It doesn't seem to matter that you may be have the right qualifications/qualities for the job - if you are not good looking -you don't get the job. Even if the job is a 'behind the scenes' job. OK some jobs there is a requirement for looks, but the majority are not.
I don't think so, necessarily. If someone is applying for a position that's highly demanding, their education, work experience and social skills are what is important...and will help them to keep their job. After all, even if someone looks good, if they can't fulfil the demands of their job they're going to be a liability, rather than an asset, for the company. Many women who aren't conventionally 'good-looking' manage to acquire and maintain good jobs over many years...so I don't agree with this premise at all.
Most definitely this is the case. I've worked in all male offices and seen the drooling that goes on when a good looker came in. It made me laugh. So predictable😂I also believe a thinner person is chosen over a heavier person.
Definitely. Before I became ill, I was VERY attractive. Like, I could stop traffic. I could get jobs and clients as easily as breathing. Now that I have gained some weight and aged, I am invisible. Some days, when I don't look sick, people treat me differently. They offer to take my grocery bags to the car. Stop to talk to me for no apparent reason. It's kind of disgusting, actually. I am the same person on the inside.
