New study finds that being handsome could stunt men's careers

If you're an unemployed guy having trouble landing a job, you might just be too handsome for your own good.
According to researchers from the U.K., good-looking guys might have a more difficult time finding a job.
870 volunteers were given resumes with identical qualifications but different photos to go along with them. Some of the men in the photos were Paul Rudd-level handsome, and others were a bit closer to Paul Giamatti.
Even though good-looking men were seen as more competent, the Denzels of the world were rejected for competitive jobs in fields like sales and investment banking. They were also more likely to be picked for jobs where they'd be a part of a team and were seen as less threatening.
It turns out that male colleagues just aren't into hiring guys that are better-looking than them.
The lead researcher said, "Organisations want to hire competent candidates but individuals have their own agenda," adding that potential employers "do not want the newcomer to do better than them and show them up."
So hot guys, embrace your inner Zoolander and know that there's "more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good looking." Your career could depend on it.
