Clean-shaven men have better job prospects, study shows

I read a very interesting article today on that says that well-groomed guys have much better job prospects.

The article cites a survey where 90 per cent of HR professionals said being well groomed is more important than a firm handshake when it comes time for a job interview.

Going for an job interview? Make sure you look smart and professional

“How you look has a direct impact on how you feel, your confidence and self-esteem,” said Mark Jeffries, business consultant, communications expert and author.

“This is as true for guys actively seeking a job as it is for those who are currently employed and seek a competitive advantage. At the same time, seemingly small details, like a clean shave or a great-fitting – but not necessarily expensive suit- send important visual cues to others about your professionalism and confidence.”

We published a story earlier this year that revealed men who shave regularly have twice as much sex as those that don’t.

That survey, conducted for Milford-based razor maker Schick by US market research company StrategyOne, found that men who shave at least five times a week are having sex 15.5 times per month, compared to 7.8 times for unshaven men.

So men, get out your razors and quick as it would appear that keeping yourself clean-shaven is the key to a successful career and love life.
