Unexpected reason that you may refuse after the interview
• Unexpected reason that you may refuse after the interview
Heart is ready to jump out of my chest and run away into the sunset, the stomach does somersaults, palms sweat and language weaves some nonsense - familiar symptoms? Their experienced, anyone who has ever been on the interview. But the cause of the frightening "no" from a potential boss may be not the excitement or even a lack of experience. And the fact that most competitors do not even think.
How many of us at least once thought about someone from colleagues or acquaintances that he was hired only for the "beautiful eyes"? And someone even in a hurry to share this inference with friends over a glass of coffee. But do not jump to conclusions and gossip. Sometimes physical attractiveness may be the main and insurmountable obstacle to hiring. And that's why.
An attractive people may be more difficult to get a job. Such a hypothesis put forward by scientists from Washington. They conducted a large-scale experiment selected 750 random respondents (from students to top managers) and invited each to the two profiles with photos. One belonged to resume typical attractive man, and the second - "candidates" with some flaws in appearance. Each of them is simultaneously fed immediately into two positions: "prestigious" (manager or intern at a large company) and "undervalued" (housekeeper, porter).
The participants were asked to imagine themselves as experts on the selection of staff and determine which of the "candidates" will get what job and why. In this case, the professional experience of the candidates was identical.
As expected, most of the "employers" chosen for the prestigious job of people with an attractive appearance. While their less bright colleagues are increasingly getting any work of nurses and porters. However, the handsome and beautiful women almost no one wanted to take the "low-status" job. Even if they really wanted to.
What's so strange about that? Argumentation. According to employers, if low-paid jobs claimed by just two people (and not too attractive), then you need to take the second. Because the "handsome" in their opinion, are dissatisfied with their situation, "demand the best," do hard work is not well in every way and spoil the boss nerves. While their less attractive colleagues will be satisfied with what we have.
