So, you have your resume in order and all your references set, you're ready to head out there and find your next job. Not so fast says one website. They want one more thing: You have to be attractive.

Yep, an employment website is drawing attention for the one qualification all applicants must have. They must be beautiful. The company explains its reasoning:

Numerous studies have shown that consumers tend to respond more positively and are more receptive to attractive people. If your company specializes in sales, is in the service industry, or has regular face to face interaction with customers - first impressions are all important.

BeautifulPeople’s recruitment service makes it easy for businesses to secure attractive personable employees to give your business that competitive edge.

What do you think? Should looks matter when looking for a job?
