Like if it wasn't just pretty short stubble, is it acceptable to an employer to have a small amount of facial hair?
i got the job. i think it was down to the facial hair. you can stroke it whilst answering questions. this makes you look intelligent.
They obviously haven't heard that glasses = intelligence.
Maybe it was my beard.
A very well groomed one. Number 2 on the beard, clean shave underneath whenever I have interviews.
I have staggeringly poor record at job interviews. I've had 6 already this
That was meant to say.
but I'd probably wimp out and shave.
If I had real balls I'd go with an Eddie Argos-style tash.
do shower though, you filthy hobo
Just got a new job with a respectable company after having a bearded intetviee. Foray!
I know this as fact as I went for an interview today sporting a beard - and was offered the job as soon as it had ended. The beard did it.
but id neated it up alot
Nothing says 'I'm looking for a new job' like shaving off a mighty impressive beard does.
I like people more when they have a beard. I haven't interviewed anyone with a beard yet though :(
On the day, I decided to shave it into a goatee.
The effect was David Brent meets George Michael.
I got the job and then shaved it all off.
But trim and tidy it fo' sho'.
See if you can pick up a really big bushy one from a fancy dress shop. A chest wig wouldn't hurt either.
Added bonus: if you don't get it, you can go for the job a second time under a different name and they'll never recognise you.
