Do you think you would be more likely to get a job if you worn glasses or not?

I think I need to get contacts before my interview next week but I am not sure.

  • I dont think they care if you have glasses or not. It matters on on qualification and appearance, excluding glasses.

  • honestly there really is a biast when it comes to hiring. if your boss is a woman then wear glasses, if it's a man wear contacts. it suck but appearance does make a difference

  • I don't think a potential employer would disqualify an applicant solely because they wore glasses.

  • it is a proven fact if you wear glasses to an interview you are more likely TO get hired, I saw it on a show a couple weeks ago, can't remember which one, I think it was ''The Doctors'' ..... but i won't jeopardize my eyesight to wear glasses just because of an interview.

  • If that is what a potential employer based their decisions on, I would NOT want to work for them in the first place. I wear both, so I could pick and chose depending on the day.

  • As far as the hiring thing goes, if they don't hire you based on your looks, you don't want the job anyways. As for getting contacts for next week, unless you're simply re-ordering the contacts, you won't get them in a week. I work at an eye doctor, lol.
