Russian born Irina Kova says she can't get a job. Despite having a law degree, she says she is so attractive, women don't trust her, and men don't take her seriously.
“Even during the hiring process, being beautiful gets in the way. I have a law degree and a great CV but my recruitment agent still told me to dye my blonde hair dark for interviews... She said, ‘You’ll never get a job looking like that’. She was right, too. After I coloured my hair I got offered more work. I even started wearing clear glasses – although my sight is perfect – to look more professional.”
One of her former bosses said that men don't want to hire her because they don’t want to be distracted at work, and prefer to hire much less attractive women. He added that some married men don’t want their wives visiting them at work and “seeing a hot, single girl sitting right next to them”.
