LOL, no paper to go along with this press release.  The outcome seems interesting BUT the conclusion as to why attractive women are hired less sounds like pure speculation!  I'd love to see this in peer reviewed form.  I can see the headlines already, "Attractive women less likely to be hired due to jealous female co-workers."

No no, Brian. Attractive women less likely to be hired due to jealous female HR reps. HR rep = cheerleading captain. Duh.

"associated with a jealous response when confronted with a young, attractive competitor in the workplace"
