Physical Appearance For Qualified Job Applicants

Many peoples Job search is more competitive than ever with more people looking for work then there are jobs, you will need as much of an advantage over other qualified job applicants as you can get.

With much emphasis put on your resume, qualifications and job experience, sometimes there is little thought on overall physical appearance. Now I do not mean whether someone has showered before the job interview or, making sure they have clean clothes on no, I mean your overall physical appearance.

In other words, if you go into an interview for instance 45 pounds over weight that may have an impact on the employers decision to hire you. That may not always be the case as that does not mean that someone does not have the skills to be an effective employee, it may come down to a question about your overall health status and discipline.

Yes in today's world, there are still employers where this may mean the difference between someone getting the job or not. If there are other applicants that are just as qualified, they may have a tendency to go in another direction.

Now we all understand that discrimination of any kind is not acceptable but, let's be clear, it still takes place in some instances.So what do you do about it? If you know you have a few pounds you can afford to lose and your doctor has brought it up as a medical issue as well, it will serve you to begin getting proactive in an effective exercise program that involves resistance training and proper food choices.

If you know that you will be searching for a job in the very near future or, looking to change careers, it pays to put some time and a few dollars into looking your very best. Anyone can go out and buy fancy clothing for the interview but, getting yourself into sound physical conditioning will be more of a challenge.

If you are not sure where to start your new physical transformation, you may want to consider going down to your local fitness center and hiring a personal trainer. Let them know what you plan to do and what your goals are.

It's much easier to make the changes you need to be successful when you have someone helping you along the way by saving you time and frustration.

Taking the time and energy to be in the best physical condition you can be in at any age will tell your employer a lot about you and, also will help in keeping you physically fit so that you are productive and have the energy to succeed.

So remember, those first ten seconds you meet a prospective employer can mean the difference in you getting hired or passed over for someone else when it comes to your overall Important physical appearance.
