People who are not so self-conscious may somewhat raise their brows over this succeeding post but allow me to simply focus on the salient aspects of the study.

Well known male cosmetic and personal grooming brand Gillette recently commissioned a study of more than 500 HR professionals through a survey conducted by Harris Interactive has exclaimed that 84% of HR professionals who responded agreed that well-groomed employees have higher chances of getting promoted up in the corporate ladder compared to those who are not so well-groomed.

Career expert, Mark Jeffries and GQ style correspondent, Brett Fahlgren are invited by Gillette to share their expertise by supplementing the study with their own insights as to its relevance in today’s competitive job market.

The nature of today’s job market is pretty much congested with too many talents but meager opportunities. Most often, the candidates that standout are the ones chosen.

As far as qualifications—education and experience are considerably weighed. However, based on the study, HR practitioners merit those who create a lasting impression especially for entry level applicants and those aspiring for the higher positions in the corporate ladder.

Even the dirtiest jobs will require you to at least dress up a bit and show your best foot forward at first before they would even hire you. Being well-groomed doesn’t mean you have to be handsome or as gorgeous as a model. It simply implies the wellness and the confidence of being able to carry yourself well even in the most stressful situations like an interview.

If you have what it takes or is willing to take yourself to the next level, Gillette has designed the Gillette Career Advantage to provide guys with the proper tools, information, and expert advice to empower them in today’s rapidly growing and ever competitive job market. In line with these, the Gillette Resource Center works closely on how Gillette products can help make this job seeking experience a success and every promotional endeavor a fruitful one.
