I have a interview at chick-fil-a (assistant manager). I’m currently a assistant manager at my current job so I’m not worried about my duties but I’m worried about my tattoos and piercings. I have no issue wearing long sleeves to cover my tattoos. but am I wasting my time with this company? And aren't sure if they are even LGBTQ friendly.
I have been applying for jobs for almost 6 months. I have 2 college degrees and very good work history. I get calls all days long due to my resume for me to come in for an interview. I dress professional and hygiene on point. BUT.. SOON as they see the tattoos on my kneck and teardrop under my eye, it's automatically shuts down. This is something I done with I was a kid and regrets it everyday of my life. Can someone tell me how to get passed this
I have quite a few that are highly visible and so far it seems to be acceptable in most work places but I worry that I might be barred from other positions as a result of having them. I don't regret them but I wonder if maybe the work place is becoming more understanding of them. What has your experience been?
I've been covering up up the tattoos on my arms for job interviews to avoid being unfair prejudice from people who don’t know any better but i’m concerned about misleading employers that hire me then get upset when I show up to work with my tattoos exposed. Should I tell employers I have arm tattoos during the interview?
So I have visible american indian pride tattoos. They arent exactly easy to cover up. Ive seen way to many people sporting full sleeves in the corporate office, in the courts, and other places. Why are people having such a problem with it?
Hi. It's been a while since I've had to look for new employment. I've spent 15 years as a legal assistant at a very corporate law firm and 6 years as HR for a notoriously liberal employer. I have some tattoos on my arms and I have a small piercing on my nose. If I was interested in going back to the corporate sector, do you think my tattoos and piercing would disqualify me? Thanks!
I'm 18 years old and in desperate need of work. I've tried many times to seek employment at simple stores and restaurants but I have yet to hear back from any. My search began ever since I lost my previous job, almost a year and a half now. I'm looking for a job pretty close to my location that doesn't require outdoor work and will hire people without judgment on their physical appearance (piercings, tattoos, etc.)
What do you think about face tattoos and do you think that they are a turnoff to potential employers? That was a question that my favorite radio gospel morning show, Get Up Mornings with Erica Campbell, posed to listeners earlier this week. The show, hosted by Erica Campbell of the famed gospel duo, Mary Mary, often asks thought-provoking questions of its listeners to see where people’s hearts and minds are. So, during the “Get Up Poll” segment of the show, listeners were asked, “What do you think about face tattoos?” As you can imagine, the responses rolled in and many people expressed very strong feelings about the topic. Naturally, the conversation quickly started to focus on the impact of facial tattoos on a person’s ability to get a job. So, as I listened to the various responses, I decided that it would be a great topic to delve into this week since my blog is committed to helping job seekers present their best selves during the job search process. Let's take a look at six perspectives on face tattoos and their potential impact on your career success. Check out my full post at https://nnamtique.com/2237-2/.
