Now, add cosmetic surgery to the list. Job seekers are now turning to plastic surgery in order to turn back the clock and appear more youthful and 'fresh' for job interviews.
Mr Grabow's surgeon, Payman Simoni, performs what he calls a "wide awake facelift" using only local anaesthesia, which he says slashes the recovery time as well as the cost of the procedure, making it popular among job seekers.
"Before the economy turned down, people would come in because they wanted to have more fun and enjoyment out of life," Dr Simoni said.
"But now plastic surgery has become a necessity for some. People cannot only rely on their skills in this market. They want to look refreshed and youthful so they can compete for jobs," he said.
