Has anyone ever told you that you have a face for radio? Certainly all of us in radio have been on the end of that funny line.
But all jokes aside, depending on how you feel about yourself, this could be good or bad news! According to a new study, attractive people are almost six times more likely to get a job interview than someone who’s just as qualified, but not as good looking.
For the study, researchers sent in applications to a bunch of different jobs and they included pictures. Sometimes it was a good looking person, sometimes it was a less attractive person.
The study found that the attractive people received interviews at one out of every six jobs they applied for. The less attractive people with the same qualifications? One out of THIRTY-THREE.
And that difference was even worse for women than men. Attractive men received five times more interviews than less attractive men, attractive women received eight times more interviews than less attractive women.
This may not be news to us. Even though in thought it sounds awful, but if we are honest we know its the way the world works.
