Older employees--nix the plastic surgery
A 2006 Medtlife survey showed that employees between 55 and 59 blamed age bias in 40% of cases when they didn’t get a job.
Apparently the younguns in HR (see, we use the word youngun) don’t want to hire Mom or Dad.
Of course, the plastic surgeons have great answers for this—lasers, peels, scrapes, tucks, and other spendy solutions.
One job hunter said she was not “shooting for beauty,” but instead a healthier appearance.
Good—they probably don’t want beauty, either. You know how tiresome that is… "Don’t hate me”…etc.
How about getting some sleep, some makeup, a shower, a smile, and don't overdo the cologne—and a great resume and lifelong skills? Just do it—and sell it, babies!
