Faut-il travailler son corps pour réussir un entretien d’embauche ? La place de l’apparence physique dans les manuels d’Aide à la recherche d’emploi

Abstract : Public policy, in particular via anti-discrimination legislation, explicitly acknowledges that there is a connection between one’s physical appearance and one’s employment. Since November 16, 2001, the French law forbids anyone being excluded from a recruitment process because of his or her physical appearance. This article examines training manuals intended to help those seeking to enter or return to the labour market. What is their advice, in light of the French anti-discrimination legislation? How do they deal with job candidates’ physical appearance without undermining the recruitment process? What physical standards do they promote? The article answers these questions with data drawn from 31 training manuals.
