"Job seekers should dress professionally but remember to stay comfortable and make sure the outfit they choose is free from stains and wrinkles...."

From an article at NYT.com reporting the results of a survey of IT managers and their hiring criteria when it comes to attire.

Also, your face should be free from wrinkles.

And your dress size should be lower than 14.

And under education you should never put 3 years high school, eight years Jeopardy.

Rick, you could throw in the thirty or forty thousand books you've read.

Jim and Debo, if I had to get by on my looks, I'd be living under an underpass; though, I know people judge that way. I've got some wrinkles, no dresses.

I don't care if the person looks like Willie Nelson on a bad day and is the size of an NFL lineman, if I could get 10 people to show up sober and do their job without treating customers and coworkers like idiots, I would be thrilled.
