Oh wow HR / Recruiter friends… Listen up, you can now post jobs and look for candidates on an eye candy site.
An attractive face is always a great first impression for any business. – beautifulpeople.com
SWEET! You can forget that horrid job of having to manually screen ugly to average looking candidates via Skype or feedback from the hiring manager. And, just think, you’ll be able to do away with the majority of the psychometric assessments that screen for narcissism. Save that part of the recruitment budget for your merit increase!… All this, while you have the most fun you have ever had searching for talent.
This sounds an awful lot like Recruiter paradise.. I suggest having a desk fan, sprayer bottle filled with cold water and tissues on hand before logging onto this recruitment site.
The website generously states three incredibly brilliant and blatantly obvious benefits Recruiters should get really excited about:
1. Numerous studies have shown that consumers tend to respond more positively and are more receptive to attractive people. If your company specializes in sales, is in the service industry, or has regular face to face interaction with customers – first impressions are all important.
2. BeautifulPeople’s recruitment service makes it easy for businesses to secure attractive personable employees to give your business that competitive edge
3. The members of BeautifulPeople.com offer a wealth of skills, qualifications and expertise with the added bonus that they all look fantastic.
Also from the website a bit of irony:
Beware if you’re with a business incorporated in the District of Columbia, ‘BeautifulPeople is unable to accept job postings from your business as it would be in violation of District of Columbia state law as framed in the Human Rights act.’
