- Results from a recent survey of more than 500 human resources professionals indicate that 84% of HR professionals agree that well-groomed employees climb the corporate ladder faster than those who are... well, dirty... or at least not so well-groomed. When Rex and I were interviewing for investment banking analysts, or even summer interns, I know we passed over guys with a grubby goatee or a dangling earring.
- When it comes to first impressions, we all judge a book by its cover, and approximately 90% of human resources professionals place more importance on being well-groomed than even a firm handshake.
Gillette (think "clean shave") has engaged career expert Mark Jeffries and GQ style correspondent Brett Fahlgren to supplement the insights from the HR survey with their own personalized expert advice for guys who are out there looking for a new job in the current economy or just looking to move ahead in the job they already have, and launched the Gillette Career Advantage, where you can take the Gillette Career Quiz or view the Hire Guide to see what human resources professionals really think. The Gillette Career Advantage is designed to help guys (hey, what about helping Roxy and all the professional girls out there??) by providing tools, information and advice to help them to trounce the competition in today's competitive job market.
Once you get that clean shave, boys, if you want to play in Roxy's World, it's all about tenacity, cold calling, writing, and analytical skills...
