Obesity itself is on the increase yet still employers admit they are less likely to hire an overweight applicant – why?

    We hired a lady a few years ago that is very obese, (due to a medical condition). She was the best qualified applicant, and she is one of the best hires we ever made. So we have no issues with obese individuals. This is why the best auditions for musicians are done behind a screen; so you can only hear the talent - and not have your judgement clouded by appearances.
