Abstract Share this page

This Ž eld experiment found that Hong Kong human resources management specialists were in uenced by the attractiveness bias in evaluating short-listed candidates for an entry-level trainee position. Zero order, stepwise and hierarchical regressions showed that perceived attractiveness of the candidates was more related to their work experience and work-related skills than to grade-point average and public examination results. Women candidates were generally preferred over male candidates. Further research is suggested to determine if the in uence of attractiveness extends over a wider range of jobs and to measure more precisely the in uence of attractiveness in different cultures and for men and women.
