    I say yes, to an extent. If two women (one gorgeous and the other homely) with the same qualifications apply for the same job, you can guarantee the gorgeous one will get it. The homely one would have to be so much more qualified to get the job. It's a shame, but people like looking at pretty faces. That will never change. Unless, of course, the pretty one has a bad attitude. That could tip the scales in the homely one's favor.

    I wouldn't say they are judged "more" by their looks, but I do agree with crackerjack, if two women with the same qualifications applied for the same position, more than likely the more attractive one would get the job.

      Thank crackerjack9 and Alphadogg16...you have answered a serious question very softly but clearly.

    I think it can depend on who is doing the judging, but also on how "extreme" the looks are, whether that's extremely bad or extremely good - and whether the "judge"  has prejudice against either.
