Do you wear glasses?  Are you looking for a job?  The two can go hand in hand according to a recent study by the British College of Optometry which found that those who wear glasses are seen as more professional and intelligent.  These are two helpful traits which can make an impact on a prospective boss in a job interview.  The study found that glasses wearers are more likely to find work than non-wearers from the way others view those who wear glasses.  I don’t wear ...

Do you wear glasses?  Are you looking for a job?  The two can go hand in hand according to a recent study by the British College of Optometry which found that those who wear glasses are seen as more professional and intelligent.  These are two helpful traits which can make an impact on a prospective boss in a job interview.  The study found that glasses wearers are more likely to find work than non-wearers from the way others view those who wear glasses.  I don’t wear glasses but have always loved them and the different looks they can achieve for their wearers.

Glasses wearers in our society definitely have a leg up on other job applicants according to the study’s findings as in the U.S. glasses are understood to be worn by intelligent, quiet, and honest people. Traits many bosses are looking for in employees.  And as portrayed in movies, glasses are often associated with nerdy characters or smarter individuals.  I like glasses as they can dress up or down an outfit but I have never needed a certain prescription so haven’t had the chance to have them as a fashion accessory just yet! 

The study didn’t say which styles make the biggest impact on those job hunting or trying to look smart, but I would guess Barley There Eyewear® styles found at Dr. Tavel Family Eye Care and many of the frames in the Ted Baker and Lulu Guinness lines would do the trick.  All can be found at Dr. Tavel offices.  Go in today to try on a pair and get your “smart” look on!
