Here’s a theory on why you can’t seem to get yourself a job: Maybe you look too cool. According to a new study, you’re more likely to get hired if you wear glasses to your interview.

One out of three people say that glasses make you look more professional, and 43% say glasses make you look more intelligent.

When people with 20-20 vision were told about those results, 40% said they’d consider wearing glasses with fake lenses to a job interview. But while glasses make you more hirable, the survey basically reiterated the old stereotype that they don’t make you good looking.

Only 6% of people say glasses are fashionable and only 9% think glasses make a person more attractive.
