World Beard Day is September 3rd! In celebration of the day, SciTechDaily put together a list of things that scientists have discovered about beards, including the fact that having a beard can help you get a job!
According to the article:
"Beards often make men look older, more mature, of higher social status, and more credible. This can be especially useful for job-seeking men who look young for their age. In fact, while past research has found that men with beards are less likely to be offered a job than their clean-shaven counterparts, times change, and more recent research shows that men with beards are perceived as having more expertise than clean-shaven men and, as such, are more likely to be invited to a job interview."
Other interesting discoveries the article covers:
- Beards may be used to intimidate rivals.
- Beards may add sex appeal
- Beards are not popular with young kids
- Beards are good for your health
