Being too Handsome can Harm Your Career

Handsome men are apparently seen as threats by male bosses, and therefore less likely to be given opportunities. Unless, of course, the boss is gay.

The research comes from four office experiments conducted in the UK and the US, backed by the London Business School and the University of Maryland. Where participants were presented with a number of different CVs from candidates to fill a job vacancy and asked to ‘hire’ one.

The researchers concluded that when men hire other men, the attractiveness of the applicant negatively impacts the decision made. So fitties are less likely to get picked for roles based on individual talent (sales, banking, graphics) and more likely to get jobs as… um, influencers? As well as roles where team performance is rewarded, so that insecure boss can further his own career.
