Appearances in professional life

Appearances in professional life

"You can turn down the applicant, she's too good-looking.
She's nothing for us."

❌Too blonde.
❌Too young.
❌Too beautiful.

It has long been no secret that people are judged and condemned on the basis of their outward appearance.
This is true not only in the private sphere, but also in the professional environment.

Wherever equal opportunities and diversity, tolerance and multiplicity are discussed with particular zeal, exactly such stories happen.

The reasons why applicants do not get a job are as diverse as they are absurd.

By far not all people have the same chances in the application process.
Today, appearance is still often the deciding factor for professional happiness.

It's about time that companies not only put the word diversity on their banners, but finally start to actually live openness and equal opportunities!
