"Beauty is not in the eye of the beholder if that eye is blind to beauty"...valentino martinez (Recruiter's Biblioteca)
It often happens--at first glance a job candidate, does not impress a recruiter. I'm here to say that sometimes the recruiter dismisses a candidate too quickly. I suggest that sometimes when you look deeper you may find a diamond in the rough.
I've found some very good candidates, who later became hires, by simply going back to the "maybe" pile of resumes—to give them a 2nd look see.

Put another way--will you be swayed by what is called the “halo” effect?
[Photo by ericcastro]
The 'halo effect' is a classic finding in social psychology. It is the idea that global evaluations about a person (e.g. she is likeable) bleed over into judgements about their specific traits (e.g. she is intelligent). Hollywood stars demonstrate the halo effect perfectly. Because they are often attractive and likeable we naturally assume they are also intelligent, friendly, display good judgement and so on. That is, until we come across (sometimes plentiful) evidence to the contrary.
IMAGE matters but does it RULE?
