    Lately I've been lacking enthusiasm for schoolwork as I'm so ugly I feel like regardless of grades no one will want to employ an ugly woman; is this irrational ?
    I'm pretty ugly without any make up on, went for an interview or a job facing customers and I still got it so don't worry, even if you genuinely ugly (which I doubt you are in any case) you will still get hired if you have the skills they're looking for

    It's completely normal! Most girls would feel like this anyway and I can relate to you. But first of all why do you think that you're ugly? How do you define what ugly is? Did anyone call you ugly?
    Well firstly my hair fell out due to a genetic condition so I have to wear a wigalthough this isn't much of an issue since my wig looks pretty natural so an employer probably wouldn't even know. Secondly I have fairly bad acne at the moment, although most of it can be covered with make up. Now if it was just those two things, I'd probably be ok since they can both be concealed, but my face is vile, I look like im deformed

    What employers think at the moment is of much less concern than what the OP thinks about herself.

    I still did have mascara on in that picture, although it wasn't properly applied. Without it I'm truly hideous (or at least I think I am)

    It isn't normal...you might feel too "ugly" for a relationship, or a friendship or something to do with you personal life but it should affect your professional life at all. You need a brain and skills for a job, if you're brilliant at what you do then it doesn't matter what you look like.
    Unfortunately, for women, this is sometimes not the case.

    Possibly irrational.
    In most jobs unless you are dealing with the public, and even then it is illegal to be discriminated, looks are unimportant.

    I've read a few articles/studies about attractiveness and women getting to the top. I think on a base level, it's irrelevant (e.g. flipping burgers in McDonald's or stacking shelves w/e). I'll try to find the particular article later and link you it (too tired and lazy rn). Essentially, it is mostly men at the top and they're the ones conducting the interview. It was found that they're more likely to hire a woman that they find attractive than one they find unattractive. Not having the article to hand rn of course limits my ability to argue it. Nevertheless, I work in retail throughout London and have noted that the vast majority of my colleagues have been really quite attractive. Luxury (ie designer) retail requires effort in selling and maybe employers think more attractive people are more likely to sell; idrk. This latter point is merely an anecdotal observation ofc.

    I watched a documentary about how it's more likely for attractive men to be employed over average looking men, I suppose it's the same for women in that sense. I do understand, you want your employees to look approachable, attractive, presentable etc

    But I think to make it a criteria is silly, you can't help it if your features are unattractive to somebody. It's something you can't change( sometimes you can, lol but thats not the point).

    I think for the most part if you are confident and know what you're doing, have the correct work ethic and the best qualifications amongst the rest of the candidates, it shouldn't matter.

    In retail, being presentable is a criteria noted on job applications. I even had to submit pictures of myself when applying for such jobs as waitressing and bar work.

    In other roles, it perhaps isn't an outlined criteria, but a subconscious one on the interviewer's part.

    No idea. The pictures were requested after I'd submitted my CV.

    If you start getting job rejections with 'Your face doesnt fit' then I'd worry, but honestly how many top politicians or heads of top companies are actually good looking too?

    Not many, so dont worry
