  • Abstract This paper applies experimental research, manipulating applicants' facial maturity, gender and position to see if differences exist when people make hiring decisions. The result shows that: When People evaluate applicants' personality and competence only by the differences of their facial maturity. Baby-faced applicants tend to be seen as kind and trustworthy people, who have good and warm personality. As a result, they are easily to be hired when applying for lower positions without management responsibility. On the other hand, mature-faced applicants tend to be considered showing higher expertise and better working competence. Therefore, they have higher chances to be hired when applying for higher positions with management responsibility. Seeing the whole picture, when only screen applicants’ facial maturity in recruitment process, those who have mature face have priority than baby-faced applicants to get an offer.
