Journal of Employment Counseling, v25 n3 p98-103 Sep 1988
Examined recruiters' attitudes regarding various hiring characteristics (communication, job selection, appearance) and their impact during initial campus interviews. Questionnaires were completed by 95 recruiters visiting West Virginia University and representing business/industry, hospitals/clinics, and public education. Results revealed that recruiters were more willing to hire qualified individuals who possessed unattractive physical features than those exhibiting communication difficulties. (Author/NB)
