Getting Support : Get a Job

Heap it on girls!

Twenty-five percent of British bosses surveyed admit a woman wearing make-up to a job interview has a better chance of getting hired.

The British communications company, Aziz Corp., interviewed 100 top managers and finds many employers think a woman who wears no make-up looks as if "she cannot be bothered to make an effort" and conveys a less professional approach.

More than 60 percent of female managers admitted being prejudiced against women who do not wear make-up, compared with 52 percent of male managers, the Daily Telegraph reports.

I think it depends what job the woman is interviewing for. If she goes for position in a steel factory as a welder or to a construction company as a bulldozer driver with high heels and freshly painted fingernails she might not get the job. Her chances might be 85% that she wont get the job.

I suppose that'd depend on if you count a fake beard as makeup (it is costume makeup so technically it still counts), if so then she'd probably improve her chances by wearing one, oh, and changing her name to Bob would probably help as well, just a tip. :p(reply to this comment

No shit Joe!!Another amazing recent survey has made a startling and completely mind blowing discovery:

Men who shave and who wear clean clothes and polished shoes, are up to....wait for it....85% more successful at job interviews!!!!!!

- More shocking and amazing was the finding that those who wore ties (depending on the field of work) increased their chances by a further 2.739%, and that those who wore a jacket (again reasonably suited to the occupation) upped their chances by a further 5.00% again.

Not surprising, researchers like those who came up with this amazing discovery prove what we have all been wondering; that they truly are worth every cent of their one million dollar government grants.
