Looks or Brains? A drastic change in the recruitment of job candidates

    The process used to be simple and fair - the candidate with the right qualifications and experience would get the job. These days, however, the process has become a lot more complex. Employers/Recruiters have become extremely demanding and the astonishing fact now is that looks and appearance are considered to be just as important as the credentials of a candidate. Employers/Recruiters seek to hire good-looking and well-groomed candidates regardless of their qualifications and experience. Materialistic issues such as looks, facial features and physical appearance have become a determining factor in deciding whether or not a candidate fits the bill.

      I can't say this is my experience. Maybe it is in retail and industries like that.
