"If You Look the Part You'll Get the Job": Should Career Professionals Help Clients to Enhance Their Career Image?
Hooley, Tristram; Yates, Julia
British Journal of Guidance & Counselling, v43 n4 p438-451 2015
This article presents a critical exploration of the role of career professionals in supporting people to reflect on and enhance their appearance, attractiveness and self-presentation (career image). The article is conceptual and based on a review of the broader literature on career success, appearance and attractiveness. It explores the evidence for a relationship between attractiveness and career, and the authors propose a conceptual framework in which career image is comprised of three elements (interpersonal skills, aesthetic presentation and beauty). The paper examines a possible role for career professionals in relation to this and then critically examines this role and concludes with the proposition of a research agenda in this area.
