Extreme makeover: Career Edition

I’ve just found this film from the University of Saskatchewan’s Student Employment and Career Centre. In it the Centre polishes up four student’s career skills and CV before sorting out their interview outfits.

What do people think about this sort of thing? Appearance clearly matters in recruitment and in working life. Catherine Hakim calls this erotic capital. Should career professionals be talking about it more and designing services like this to enhance it?
