I just applied for a summer job which involves me being outside a lot and probably a lot of physical work that may be hard for me. If you are considered a "cute" girl applying for a job that involves working outside in the bush, hiking, canoeing, driving a ATV etc. do you take her seriously? I come from a farm, so I have done some hard work out in the sun and hard conditions. I have worked with machinery and some power tools too. I may not look it, since I am not that big, but I am tall. I applied for this job because I was thinking about getting into an environmental job related to water. I was just wondering, would they take me seriously? Because in a way I almost thought they were surprised that I was the one they were interviewing. Just because I said on my resume that I come from a farm, I am guessing they were expecting some big, husky girl, but I am not. So do I even have a chance with this job?
Do guys take a "cute" girl seriously during an interview?

I think this depends on the type of "cuteness". By that I mean there are two totally different categroies:
1) a girl with a cute face who comes in wearing outdoorsy clothes and speaks knowledgeably about outdoor activities, and mentions experience with those things or other physical activities.
2) a girl with a cute face who comes in wearing a sundress and mentions that she thinks it would be fun to learn how to do hard things like canoeing and mentions that, as far as experience goes, she once saw someone use an ATV.
The cuteness exists for both, but the person who is obviously better prepared for the job is still a good candidate for the job. Unfortunately, the cuteness may cause a stereotype that you'd have to overcome, but with experience and ambition, it shouldn't be hard.0

You would actually be more likely to get the job, especially if a man did the interview.0
