    I must confess I was always a bit jealous of good looking people and felt they had an unfair advantage over the rest of us until i saw a very candid confession by a professional model.

    Of course it matters. That said, there is no unfair advantage if you work for yourself :)

    Being good looking sometimes is a blessing but sometimes it is a nightmare. Most of the times good looking people have to work harder than average people because it is thought that beautiful ones are not intelligent.
    Also they have to deal with persons who want to use them very often so that is why most of them have a lack of confidence.:(

    A big yes . First Impression always matter and good looking people always manage to give a good first impression on the first look.unless they are too dumb . And it also helps in interview .

    good personality=good first impression = good career

    PS: you are a rat looking rabbit you dont have to be jealous of anyone :D

    or a rabbit looking rat .. i am confused seriously :D

    It is true.But I think always its not true.Some times look is not matter but your personality and your responsibility is first priority in your career.

    Absolutely. Looks aren't everything, but they certainly make you stand out from a crowd. This is especially true for jobs where you need to look like the type of person who could represent the brand well. Sometimes there's a certain "look" that you need to have in order to fit in with a company's culture. I used to work for a clothing store called GUESS... I love the brand and a lot of my clothing is from there. So naturally, I wanted to apply. It was only a part-time job, but I can't tell you how hard it was just to get in. They had a group interview and everything. There were several good looking girls/guys in my interview group, but they didn't get the job. Why? Most likely because their answers just didn't "fit in" with what they were looking for in an employee. When I started working there, all my co-workers were good looking people... But they were also good communicators and sellers. So it depends where you're applying.

    It also makes a good first impression if you look like the type of person who takes care of him/herself. On that note, I believe that anyone can be "good looking," but you have to actually put the time in and make an effort. Sure, everyone's genes are different, and some have it more natural than others, but it's still doable.

    As long as you look presentable and professional, and you don't look like you just walked out of a cave, then looking like a model isn't a prerequisite. Someone could be the best looking person in the world, but if he/she doesn't have the brains/experience to back it up, then what's it to the hiring manager?

    When it comes down to it, looks definitely help, but I think it primarily comes down to how you sell yourself. In my books, it's all about your personality, the way you talk/respond, and how you present yourself to a potential employer.

    It depends on the job that you are applying for. But this isn't necessary for most companies, they can hire anyone with exceptional skills and look presentable to them.

    Fox news channel is famous for hiring former models and miss Americas as their anchorwomen.

    A good-looking waitress at a restaurant will almost always get bigger tips.

    A good-looking teacher (a man or a woman) gets more respect from his/her students.

    And so forth.

    I think it depends on what type of job you have.
    A model, of course.
    A janitor, course not.

    But if you get into jobs that require skills. It's not as much unfair.

    I don't think so, but according to research, good looking people make more money.

    Good looking person + bad attitude = Failed career.
    It,s not about looks, it's about attitude.
