Well, it seems unfair that this picture exists because it is just so perfect – but because is does have words and facts included, I will post two. The title of this picture “Beauty’s Benefits: How Good Looks Lead To Higher Paychecks.” We see according to the picture that attractive employees earn up to 15% more and are more likely to get called back for another interview. Women and men who are underweight earn more money than those who are overweight, and men over 6 feet tall earn more than shorter men. I also appreciated the use of Barbie and Ken – two pop-culture icons, in all of the graphics. I almost laughed when I saw the amount of makeup versus character traits and learned that apparently if a woman wears a “glamorous” amount of makeup she is seen at more competent, more likable, more attractive, and more trustworthy. I guess I will have to start wearing more makeup! This graphic image was an insanely awesome and lucky find.
Now for an image that is well, an image.

Ha! This chick is AWESOME. She is hot – like clearly get hired and make more money because of her wonderful use of makeup, hair care, and gorgeous genetics. And she is flying high on money – look at her go. She is more likely to get hired than your average looking Mary Jane and will probably make a higher salary – just because she is a hottie. Not fair, right? I picked this image because I think it says in a picture the theme and issue I am looking at for my White Paper. Should there be policies regarding hiring for attractiveness? It is an interesting issue to look at and there are many cases about it that I will be looking closer at for my White Paper.
