Massive BEARD and job interview
« on: July 27, 2020, 02:24:36 PM »
Got an interview on Thursday for a job I actually want, and am about to be made redundant from my current one.

I have however not trimmed my beard since the end of Feb. Ideally I'd like to take it to a barber to be made to look hipster rather than homeless, but that doesn't seem to be an option at the min.

So tell me, am I destined to have to trim the three inches of glory back down to 3mm and to reveal my new chin in the process? Is anyone interviewing at the min? And if so how dim a view is being taken on people looking like a sweaty dishevelled wreck?

Don’t do anything but JUST mention in the interview how you like to do your bit for charity like growing a beard for women’s health.

Good luck for the interview.

Shave the beard, I'd say.

I wonder if I could set up a just giving and guilt them into donating. It might take the edge off a rejection letter.

What's the job on a scale of ZZ Top understudy to baby's arse impersonator?

In an ideal world it shouldn't matter but... if you want the job and are about to be made redundant, it's better safe than sorry.

I'm normally like a Premier League six yard box in terms of length. And a Steven Seagal overhead shot in terms of density.

The job is in the civil service, so I think they'd prefer babies' arses to Eliminator.

The civil service was a very mixed bag when we last crossed swords.  I knew a Director General who would send women home immediately for wearing trousers, his grade 6 used to tongue sugar directly from the sugar bowl and I once had a meeting with a man, quite a senior man, in agriculture who was wearing a string vest. 

Maybe shave one side and present whichever cheek seems appropriate, that's my advice.

Its discrimination isn't it. Just wear your beard with intensity. If you don't get hired, sue them for discrimination against the hirsute.

Discrimination against the bald too. Jesus made me all wrong.

Where can I get a string vest in a hurry?

That is actually a legal argument. In Germany they have a law against discriminating against the bald. Diskriminierunggegenkahlegesetz

It was almost harder to shave it than it was to grow it. Rest in peace, little mouse.

I see the outline of a black cat in that sink. That brings good luck or bad luck that does. Good luck!

If that happens he should just say that he doesn't have a beard because he's the drummer.

Sounds like a dated innuendo, of the sort that might be made by this type

a Director General who would send women home immediately for wearing trousers

Good luck with the interview, OP - I'd be surprised if any employers had a vehemently anti-beard stance, especially at the moment.

Completely different role/industry, but when I did agency work for wanky events, the presentation rules for blokes specified 'either clean-shaven or full beard', so stubble or a lone 'tache was their bête noire, it would seem. I'm sure as long as it looks clean and neat it'll be fine.

Edit: ahh it's gone. Well good luck anyway

Did the advert mention anything about long-haired freaky people?

I reckon it was mistake to shave your pubes, unless you are hoping to seal the deal by whacking out an enormous cleanly shaved todger during the interview.

In all seriousness, as an ex civil servant myself, I would say make yourself as smart as possible, if you must have facial hair make it very neatly trimmed. Civil servants love to see neatness and be smartly dressed for the interview. Once you get the job you can do as you please, when I worked in the service there was a guy who would regularly wear the same tie for the whole of the week even if it was covered in breakfast on Monday (which it usually was). I also worked with some techie types whose fashion ideas seemed to be modelled on Roy Cropper, think socks with sandals.

The other end of the scale was when I did a visit to HQ in Liverpool and I got in the lift with a gaggle of girls who were wearing outfits that would have been considered too daring as stage gear for Girls Aloud as well as rollers in their hair. It turned out they were going straight out from work and wanted to look their best at least for the start of the night.
