It’s Hard For Attractive People to Get Their First Job

THIS is why you can’t get a job.  It’s not because you’re wildly underqualified or you always show up to interviews 20 minutes late and drunk.  No, you can’t get hired anywhere because you’re too damn SEXY.

A new study out of the London Business School found that really good-looking people have a tougher time getting their first job and other entry-level jobs than the rest of us.

Why?  The researchers say it’s because we subconsciously link good looks and ambition in our minds.

So we wouldn’t want to hire a hot person for an entry-level job, because they look like they’d be high-maintenance.  And then, once you spend all that extra effort training them, they’ll quickly leave for a better job.

In conclusion, feel sorry for the super attractive people of the world, because clearly they . . . I mean WE . . . have it really, really rough.
