Job interview tips: Wear glasses to look more professional

Never mind a crisp shirt or a firm handshake. If you want to impress a potential employer, put on a pair of spectacles. Job hunters are more likely to be hired if they wear glasses to their interview, according to a study.

A third of adults think spectacle-wearers look more professional, while 43 per cent think they appear more intelligent. Dress to impress: Statistics show people wearing glasses are perceived to be intelligentAnd 40 per cent of those with 20-20 vision would consider wearing clear lenses if it would improve their chances of getting a job.

Another six per cent would put on glasses to feel fashionable, and nine per cent think spectacles make the wearer look more attractive, the study by the College of Optometrists found. Looking good: Wearing glasses might help you get a job, but they are also a bold fashion statement. Kelly Osbourne and Jennifer Love Hewitt were both pictured wearing specs this week
