My hair is long and I thinking about cutting it short. Does your hair cut matter when you are looking for a job?
it could. depends where you want to get hired.
depends what job you're looking for
show us a pic
it's down to my shoulders, not that long... looking for a job as a gd
Anything about your appearance could matter.
As for hair, I'd say...keep it clean...out of your face for the interview, at the very least. Obvious, really.
I am fairly clean cut... hair is my only infraction. If I wear a suit and tie and have long hair - it makes a difference?
yes it might make you look like a scruffy hipster type
everything matters, but the thing that matters most is your book / portfolio.
not necessarily what your hair looks like - but how you pull it off.
whether you're confortable with it, trying too hard, are you generally dirty, or pretty clean, (or even overly clean), do you care TOO much about what people think abotu your hair, or do you just concentrate on impressin gme with your book...
those would be the kind of hair related questions i would be thinking of
then i would ask you
'if you could be a tree, what tree would you be? - your interview is riding on this'
i don't know, would i be a different tree with short hair?
would you really want to work at a place as a DESIGNER where they really got worked up over your hairstyle?
who cares as long as you do good work?
i had hair damn near down to my ass when i got hired here
and what if you cut your shit and didn't get the job??
you tell me bucko...
i wouldn't make a habit out of making sacrifices to cater to someone else's personal taste... you'll be doing enough of that with clients...
i like scarabin - he makes it sound so simple
thanks to all, it worked for britney, so it should work for me ;)
Yeah, the portfolio is the most important thing, obviously. But just pull it off in the best way possible, whatever you do. An interview is where you present yourself and your work in the best light. I, of course, agree with scarabin, but I'm being realistic about how people will judge things based on your appearance.
- maybe it's different here in LAscarabin_net
- Anyway, being yourself is probably the best advice. Good luck.Jaline
- Weird. I would think L.A. is THE place where people only look at appearances. But I guess it gets a variety of people too.Jaline
- yeah in LA is easy to over dresses. lol.akrokdesign
