I just overheard a coworker telling another coworker, that the lady who came in for an interview this morning will not get hired because of her looks. After the interview, the manager went back to her office and ripped the interview test material. It’s so sad, because even though the applicant had the credentials (she applied for the position of accountant, and she used to work an accounting firm), she did not have the looks or figures.
Geez, seriously, when did your ability to work well as an accountant have anything to do with your looks? Accountants don’t leave the office, they’re not running for some kind of beauty pageant, and it involves skills that have nothing to do with physical appearance. Would they rather have a human Barbie who can’t even add and subtract properly, or someone who has great accounting skills but not so well endowed in the looks department?
I remember from a psychology course back in university that beautiful people have an easier time in life than not-so-beautiful people. It’s so sad, but true. :(
