I saw this article in The Sun and didnt really know what to think about it. Was she really hired for her 2:1, despite the fact that many other students out there with the same qualification are struggling to get work? Or did she genuinely excel in an interview and deserves the job?

Natalie Brown

THE brainy beauty told she was too glamorous for a job is being taken on by a top advertising agency - thanks to Sunemployment.
Natalie Brown, 21, is all set for a placement at prestigious London firm M&C Saatchi.
We told yesterday how she was devastated after being told to "tone down" her pretty image by a small marketing firm. But she can now launch her career with the very best.

Natalie, of Holland-on-Sea, Essex, said: "It's a dream come true to be taken on by such a prestigious company. I am over the moon."
After reading about her case in The Sun, M&C Saatchi called her for an interview to fix details of a three-month placement.
The firm was set up by a founder of Saatchi and Saatchi - the famous company behind the iconic election poster "Labour Isn't Working", which helped the Tories sweep to power in 1979.
An M&C Saatchi spokesman said: "The group prides itself on only employing the best brains in the business.
"We admire Natalie's entrepreneurial spirit in contacting The Sun to tell her story.
"If she is as brainy as The Sun says she is, then we would love her to work with us. As such we have offered her a three-month work placement to show us how good she is."
She will help with the PR for massive firms like Coca-Cola, Reebok and Carlsberg.
The beauty - who has a 2:1 degree in advertising and marketing - turned down a job at a marketing firm after being told her looks might "give the wrong impression" to clients.
Natalie, currently waitressing, said: "We learned about Saatchis at uni. I never dreamed I could be working for such an amazing company so soon."
