I totally agree with plastic surgery so I agree with ‘plastic surgery to get a job’ too. People think that someone’s appearance a qualification to get a job and more and more people are getting plastic surgery to improve their chances of getting the job they want. It is becoming more important for job applicants to leave a good impression at the interview. This means appearance is becoming a criterion on which candidates are being judged. Society is pressuring people to get plastic surgery. I think it’s a personal and valid choice.
In conclusion, people the right to invest in themselves and ‘plastic surgery to get a job’ is one of the ways to do that. Many people criticize others for doing this but I think that we shouldn’t be judgmental because they are exercising rights. We have to respect that. Also people who get plastic surgery should have confidence. They decided to get plastic surgery themselves and have a good impression by investing a lot of money and bearing the side effects. They don’t need to hide and be ashamed by the fact that they had plastic surgery.

It is not too much to say that today's society is really the age of plastic surgery. Plastic surgery is becoming more and more common, especially among people in their twenties. There is a trend for young people to get plastic surgery for employment. People who think appearance one of the most important qualifications when applying for a job are having surgery to leave a favourable impression with the employer. I do not agree with having a plastic surgery simply to get a job. Some people argue it is inevitable. However, I think that is little more than the weak excuse of someone who is unemployment. There are lots of other requirements to get a job and they are fulfilled through hard work. Unlike these, plastic surgery is an easy fix. People who want to have this type of surgery are encouraging the self obsession mentality that is popular in Korea today. It places more emphasis on looks rather than actual credible achievements. A job interview is not a beauty contest. If you are going to have a plastic surgery because you think that it will improve your chance of getting a job then you really need to consider a valid point beforehand: What really is your weak point, your appearance or your qualifications?
