Those of you who happened to be looking for an attractive date this morning may have noticed you can now find a date and a new employee on the same site.
No, not eHarmony — that’s another story altogether. I’m talking about beautifulpeople.com, which now has a link on the upper right of its home page to “recruit beautiful employees.”
This BeautifulPeople site is not for everyone.
According to the company, “applicants are required to be voted in by existing members of the opposite sex. Members rate new applicants over a 48-hour period based on whether or not they find the applicant ‘beautiful’. Should applicants secure enough positive votes from members, they will be granted membership to the BeautifulPeople community. The vote is fair and democratic.”
One study from Europe and Israel shows that good-looking men are at an advantage when job-hunting (maybe not so with women).
