I support enthusiastically the idea that in contemporary society “creating an appealing image” is much more important than the reality or truth behind it. What I stick to this preference for is based on large amount of personal experiences and reported statistics.
From the childhood we are encouraged to study industriously as to find a well-paid occupation， and to attain this hankering， endless sweats and bloods have been exhausted from our revere parents. When the day finally comes for graduation， we really have been ready to welcome a new life. But， do you ever think of this question， “Are you actually shape yourself as what you intend to be during the long-range learning life？” Obviously， until your first earned single penny arriving at your hands nothing can be illustrated. Similarly， an elaborate product equipped with most advanced technology after tens of years' research， could be approbated by public， no words might be more convincing if it is enabled to be successfully pushed to the top sales in the commercial market.
Then， the problem is be disinterred from the surface of reality， what is functioning as the major role in the “sale”， either the commodity is “yourself” or some “product”。 A recent survey reported on an official journal reveals that this year almost 50% of the graduates cannot find favorable job， among which more than half of them even have relatively wonderful resume and education background. How can they fail to sell themselves out at an ideal price？ In the process of survey， the surveyor also surprisingly found that many famous companies would rather like to pick up the interviewers whose image is fashionable and characteristic than those who are deprived of this disposition， in spite of their diplomas are much brilliant than the former ones. The survey does evoke my deepest thoughts in my mind.
Why those companies who are famous for their practical strategies have established such standards to choose their recruits？ Well， finally， according to my field research， the answer is too obvious to believe. In the employing market， what you can do is to display yourself like a piece of artwork and then wait for your connoisseur. Then how can you expect your ideal employer will exclaim to you， “I'll take this！， absolutely！” ？ Instead of examining your practical capability to fit in the particular work of his apartment， which in fact is not qualified to the real conditions at that moment， he merely justifies your ability through the image appeared in front of him， as the principles tightly held for him that an appealing image is a crucial reflection of the actual substance. Till now， you can easily distinguish the importance of the image， and the reality or truth， before being uncovered under the sun， leave it where it is； it's his destiny. As to the commodity， more facile understanding can be digested in that a taking skin outside the material body is a good propaganda and appealing incentive to lure people's desire for acquisition.
Hence， it is for quite a simple reason that such appealing image has been becoming more and more momentous： without it， no matter how perfect the reality or truth behind it， no opportunity can they be rendered as their real value escaping the tragedy criticized as zero， just as the end of the survey report saying， many interviewers sadly curses themselves with tears to prefer to never have it. （568 words）
