Don't go cuckoo trying to look young
Anita Bruzzese, CareerBuilder, says this fear (or reality) of age discrimination can lead people to extremes.
I never recommend extremes of cutting into yourself just for appearances.
It has been my experience that human tissue does not always do what we want it to.
Still, plastic surgery is up 5% from a year ago.
On the other hand, I saw a commercial for a hair dye that basically does not work—does not cover all gray—supposed to look more natural. Yeah, I guess.
I also am not into the Fox News swimsuit top look in clothes for women applying for office jobs. What is UP with that? It looks hootchy as all get out! Wear a blouse, a suit, not a leotard. Keep the “girls” covered.
And maybe good shoes. Supposedly hirers look at shoes.
Don’t iron your hair, especially over 40.
Stand up straight—good posture.
A boob job or over-botoxing? People talk about that instead of your abilities.
And those fake tans. OMG! Liver trouble! The health plan will be ruined!
