Sandcrawler PSA: Use What The Good Lord Gave You
But maybe conventional wisdom has been leading us astray. According to new research from Paris-Sorbonne University, showing a bit of skin during the recruitment process can help a woman clinch a job interview.
Here’s the deal: over a period of three years, researchers responded to hundreds of job ads using two fictional female candidates: both had nearly identical resumes and experience, but one wore a low-cut top in her application photograph (commonly used when applying for jobs in France), while the other wore a conservative high-neck blouse. Can you guess which one attracted more interview offers? Yep. Researchers found that more cleavage = more interest from recruiters.
