I suspect that Aussie Chick would find the commute sub-optimal ;-)

A good-looking actor hired to lure in the unsuspecting and hopeful female interns? :)

In fact, from that angle, he looks like Kyan of "Queer eye for the straight guy"

Is "Good Looking: Yes/No" part of the "Joel Test for hiring new interns?"

To the OP....why exactly would I be interested????

(No offence to young Ben, I haven't even seen the photo)

Hmmm...let's see...two potential hires, same  background, same skill level, similar communication skills, but one is average to ugly, the other good looking.

Who gets hired?

And I used to be able to argue "Yeah, but at least I'm smart."

Damn you, Ben! I should just go tie myself to the train tracks now...

Dear Joel,

I am very photogenic and I can spell SQL.  Can I be your intern?

If you've got two equally talented applicants, hire the ugly one.  The good-looking one will have stuff to do with him/herself other than work.

Fogcreek people are attractive and squeaky clean. I guess they wouldn't want me because of my vague distrust of cameras... and my idea of grooming is running my hand through my hair right before a photo snaps.

Fortunately one day we'll all have VR or biotech and appear as we wish.

This makes me wonder.  If I want to work for Joel I not only have to be able reverse a linked list on the white board, know how to get 3 gallons from 2 and 5 gallon bucks, but also  now must also study from "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" ?

Bill, you might wanna do that for your own benefit, not for the benefit of others...
