For me, your looks definitely affect your future job market. It hurts but that's the reality. If you are ugly, no one would like to hire you. If you have physical deformities, no company would like to even welcome you for an interview. You should have a pleasing personality for you to have your dream job.

frankly speaking,yes it's really true that your beauty will affect on your future job market.As what I've observed nowadays, If you have the beauty,many companies would like to hire you.Even if there is capable enough on that position they will hire you if they wanted.

What is beauty if the brain is empty? Yah! its true that this are the basis nowadays for accepting employees for a certain position even if they are not capable of it, but come to think of it? do you think that this kind of requirement for accepting job is realistic? what are they going to contribute to the company if they are not knowledgeable for the position assigned to them? i know that this is the reality and it really hurts, but why they come up of this kind of requirement which is so unfair? there are many who are capable but neglected due to this kind of demand.. i strongly disagree with this statement

In my own opinion, that's true having no appeal is a big hindrance for applying a job most specially in now a days that there's many competence because of the fact that many graduates now but lack of work. So, the employer will wisely chose the applicants having a good looks for the benefits of their company or business.

not necessarily, but in many cases it does. That's because the looks per se conveys a person's wit, capability and friendliness or otherwise..... looks and quality is both needed for his or her success in the job market....

actually, beauty doesn't really affect your future job market. because nowadays company accepts you as an employer if you have brain for not all the times that beauty is just a basis. what will you do with so much beauty if you can do nothing for the job you are applying for? what will happen for those knowlegeable person but, unluckily very poor in terms of beauty? if only beauty and the looks are the basis in applying for a job, why isn't ugly exist?

Ooww, Yes!..pleasing personality really matters when you are applying for a job. But if you are just intelligent, competent and has capabilities on having such job,of course they will hire you despite of having physical deformities.....

All of you got your point . . . Today, companies are wiser in selecting new employees because of economic crisis, they don't want to ruin the standing of the company by hiring just beauties instead of wit and intelligence as basis. But the fact is, if you have beauty at the same time intelligence, you will be hired first than those who are not so attractive with brain!

definitely you had the point, if a person do have the both quality of beauty and brain surely they will be qualified and easily accepted in such position he/she wants to get.

ladyNpink said...

Yah, that' the reality. Many companies would like to hire the applicants who has the beauty, because it help them to cast lots of costumer. But above all these, being an applicant who has the beauty, the brain, and the good characteristics that she/he possess, it could gives an additional points to the interviewer.And surely, they will hired you 100%...

d' positivethinker said...

well, you are precisely correct.. intelligence together with beauty is the key to get a good job..

MLG,GB said...

Certainly,you are correct. Both brain and beauty are important in applying a job. If you have these qualities you considered as lucky person.
