Being Too Handsome Can Damage a Man's Career

Being Too Handsome Damages a Man's Career According to One Study

According to research at University College London's School of Management and the University of Maryland, men who were deemed more attractive were less likely do well in specific job markets when the hiring is done by other males.

The study from 2015 underscores yet another society bias that some hiring managers fall victim to, inadvertently damaging the companies overall productivity by hiring someone less qualified simply because they are also less physically attractive.

Companies have to be very careful who they place in the position of hiring manager and ensure they do not sacrifice brand potential for the sake of physical appearance.
