Think for a minute. You've two candidates applying for the same job. Both of them have similar work histories, identical qualifications, and amazing attitudes.
But there's only one difference between them. One of them could grace the front cover of Vogue, whilst the other is more suitable for the cover of Death Metal Monthly. One of them makes you blush; the other could give you thrush. Who would you hire?
In today's economy, looking good is no longer something that can be dismissed as frivolous or vain. A recent survey has shown that good-looking people are more likely to have successful careers.

Are they doomed to bad jobs and low-paying wages? Certainly not! So, can you compete with the beautiful ones and gain an advantage? What should you do if you didn't win the genetic lottery? There's hope... and a strategy as well!
Dress for success
This is one of the most important strategies for achieving good looks at work. For this strategy, your feminine inspiration is Sarah Jessica Parker and Michelle Obama. These two style icons are revered and known for their impeccable style, intelligence and grace. If you need a promotion, then command the room with your figure flattering apparel. This advice really works. Dress for the job that you want and not for the position you are in. You'll feel more beautiful, prepared and confident!
Seek professional help for your style transformation
If you want, you can seek the help from a professional for your style transformation. He/she will tell you the honest truth. Your friends, though loving, won't tell you if you need your eyebrows arched or whether look fat in a formal skirt.
Use good grooming and highlight your best features
Got the hair that is envy of all your friends? No problem! Get a cut that will make others say... Wow! If you have great legs, then show them. If you don't have enough money for an extreme makeover, find a fashionable boutique in your city and ask them for advice.
Confidence is important, too!
Of course, confidence and experience can still go a long way when it comes to succeeding at work. Remember, these two things ranked first and second on the list of the most important employee attributes. Beauty bias notwithstanding, there are opportunities for people who aren't hotties.
Along with all these things, don't forget the five important areas which are not looks-dependent: your unique skill set, charisma, likeability, positive attitude and ambition. After trying these tips, you'll have the confidence to make new friends, get a better job or even start a business. Intelligent, well-dressed, painstakingly groomed women will always be employable, regardless what how their looks are.
