One of the sad parts of life is that appearances is everything. I have tried to listen to the FM radio on my phone but all the stories seem to include the perception of appearance and seeking approval. They do have successful women which is important.  It started out when we were young.  We went to school with children who may have been rich, middle class or poor.  The rich children dressed very nicely and if they had decent parents, those individuals passed their clothes down to the poor families. They were still picked on but they did have nicer clothes.  When a person applies for a job, their appearance is everything.  They are instantly judged by how they look. The second a person walks into the personnel office there is an instant quiet response by the manager. If they are clean and neat but don’t like their looks, vocabulary, or they feel they are not the right fit even though they are well qualified, they will be automatically rejected. That is truthfully how I was able to get many individuals hired via the actual manager and not HR. There was an article today on the net about a woman who was rejected for a position. She was told that she didn not put enough effort into her appearance.  She didn’t wear makeup which somehow caused her to be tured down.  This happens more often than we believe but it is true.  That was one of the things I loved about being in the engineering contract business.  People were always hired for their skills.  Although, there was this one woman who was hired as a solderer in a manufacturing facility. Her work was impecable however her body odor was overwhelming. My late husband finally told her to either take a shower or find another job.  She had animals and fed them before work.  She eneded up showering only a few times and then she had to be replaced.  She was pleasant but when you are working with other people for eight hours a day, cleanliness and a lack of body odor is essential. What are your thoughts on the appearance of job candidates? The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
