Undress for success? What kind of clothing really gets job interviews?

Women who wear low-cut tops and dresses in photographs accompanying their job applications are nearly 20 times more likely to get an interview, according to new research. Revealing clothing made women more attractive in both sales and accounting jobs in the study that was conducted in Paris, which is hosting the Appearance Matters Conference this week.Dr. Sevag Kertechian, the lead researcher of the Paris study, found that women with identical skills and experience on their resumes were 19 times more likely to get a job interview while wearing low-cut clothing instead of round-neck clothing.

“Regardless of the job, whether customer-facing saleswoman or office-based accountant, the candidate with the low cut clothing received more positive answers,” Kertechian told The Telegraph.
