what jobs do u people do
I work as an oral and maxillafacial surgeon assistant. Like Biz said in her reply above, if you have a solid resume, confident, knowledge in what you are doing, passion, those are the things that will shine. I wore my dreads up and back, dressed professionally. It took about 5 weeks to get the job I wanted. I turned down a couple of offers due to their location, be patient too. Believe in yourself...it will show when interviewing. . I am on the older side too (age wise), with a husband who is retired from the attorney general office. I guess what I am trying to say is that dreads are showing up across a broad spectrum of occupations. Maybe have your mom look at some of our photos. She may chill out and relax a bit. Let us know how you are doing.
Peace and enjoy the earth today.
