    If you had facial hair like I currently do, definitely shave. I've got sideburns forming into a neckbeard. My laziness gets in the way but I'm shaving later, no ifs ands or buts. Job market is tight lately as most of you know. Not only that but some managers out there are ignorant assfucks. I'll never forget how I was shot down from a job just because I have Aspergers. My mom met the manager of a dry-cleaner facility I applied at, at the bar, and as soon as she told him about my disability, he said "No. Not gonna work". I'm still furious. It's as if he thinks I'm retarded and he hasn't even fucking met me.

    Well, having facial hair doesn't need to mean that you don't shave. You just like, shave around it, and hopefully use a beard trimmer to get it into a good form.

    For me, I look really bad without any pubic hair on my face, so that's what I do, but I wouldn't dare let my neckbeard grow out for too long, especially for something like a job interview. It's hard enough to find work as it is, hah.

    Depends on what the job is, but dress for the job you WANT, not the job you're interviewing for. Dress to impress. That means trimmed neatly or shaved, unless you're applying to be an amish farmer or a biker bartender or something.

    depends on if your facial hair has a disorganized look to it or if it has sharp edges and lines

    a lot of places have rules and regulations about employees having facial hair (like Disneyland) so think about that too

    and it also depends on what kind of job this is a professional one like corporate? (shave) or is it for McDonalds (wouldn't really worry about it)

    so I'd really need more info before giving a straight answer

    If you don't want to post a pic, that's fine.... but the best thing to do is go cleanly shaven.

    Remember it's the old saying is true, you only get one chance to make a good impression. People who are interviewing you will be judging your appearance as a barometer of how well you maintain yourself--which gives them an impression of how well you'll represent their company and/or products.

    Good luck.

    I was more saying, in terms of for yourself. Not me. Sorry if there was a bit of mis-communication.

    Well, taking another look at your first post, you can see why we would think it was YOU going to an interview, thought you wanted our input and/or suggestions.

    :sly:  oh well.....

    lol Its alright. But in general, shaving is the best policy. You never know when the person giving you the interview has this thing about seeing "facial hair." Impression of course, is important. Especially when its the first impression.
