Beauty Byte: Will Free Botox Get You Hired?


With limited openings in so many industries, it's hard not to obsess over each little detail that could be standing in the way of you and your future dream job. Not just employment history and education concerns; one South Florida medispa feels your advanced age could be a factor.

That's right, if you think companies discriminate against your years in the interview process, Fort Lauderdale's Tribeca Medaesthetics is offering an essay contest with a prize of up to $3,000 in free cosmetic work . . . if you can explain your unemployment circumstances and why you want need treatments like Botox, lipolysis, and waxing to look more competitive in this competitive market.

Targeting job seekers in their 30s (!) and older, the top 20 unemployment explanations win. While my mind is full of questions — Are looks everything for jobs, too? Wouldn't the dates on résumés give you away anyway? — if you live in Florida, it's up to you to answer the contest ad. For everyone else: Is this a creative way to get yourself noticed, or wrong on so many levels?
