    absolutly.

    When I have been waiting in a waiting room for less time than other reps and got called up before them. Whoever says looks don't matter is full of BS. Tell that to the less attractive rep. left sitting there!!!

    Interesting! I've heard this before but, this lead me to another related question. I'm very attractive, I am a former cheerleader but, I'm a 'curvy plus-size' type (like Jill Scott). With that said, do cute & curvies get hired or, will I need to be a size 6?
    You can be honest.

    Certain companies take ONLY the "barbie doll look". Other companies take all shapes and sizes.

    Hairy has no respect for women. I think it's because he's a homosexual.

    Follow me around much? Hmmm?

    I think Hef just hates gays so that's why he torments you. I hope you and Boogalou work things out.

    More like a size 0 to 2. Honestly. I've known a few size 6 to 8's, but not many. Good luck!

    well im a size 0 so hopefully i get hired (Please note sarcasm). But, actually, 0's are too large on me. Will they look past the anoretic in me? I'm actually being serious...I've had trouble getting jobs in the past b/c I don't look well.

    =(

    First, some companies hire because you are qualified, not because of what you look like.

    Second, if a male is doing the hiring and he opts for the barbie doll type, he is probably short and has to compensate for what he lacks at home.

    Third, why should women have to worry so much when tons of men in this industry have beer bellies, are short, have cheesy facial hair and dress like metro sexuals?

    Good one. It is true that there are many women in the HUGE size of 6 to 8. God forbid, I think I have seen quite a few who are larger than a size 8! OMG!
    Look, if you just offer yourself up on a plate, why wouldn't you get hired? As a woman you have all the power to manipulate the situation. BONUS!

    Take a look around the waiting rooms and it appears that the hiring managers seem to have a type that they prefer to hire. Size 0-4 females and white males > 6ft tall.They can't have that as a requirement because that would be discriminationm but you really don't see many exceptions.

    Isn't "curvy" just a polite way of saying your fat?
