Good to hear! I have dreads and a career too good employers look for competent people regardless of their appearance. My right arm is totally tattooed and the left one will be soon my employers didn't mind they actually thought I would help attract young people because it would help to show they are 'open' and 'dynamic'.
By the way I work for a railway company things are most definitely changing.
congratulations for ur new job.. :] and yea its so true its personal skills and ability that matters most in any field of work and not things like hair, no hair, straight hair or dreadlocks, tattos, no tattos, ..
these are just unnecesary mental blocks that ppl put themselves into and it doesnt do any justice to our true capabilities.. personally i would never work at a place which will reject me on grounds of my hairstyle. they dont deserve my services. and they dont know what they'll miss...
it took me a yaer to get a job at wendys because everyone here is a judgemental ass wipe. but i was surprised i got the job actually because i deal with the common public everyday. now they want to promote me. perfect example of not why not to judge a book by its cover because i actually am a good working. they wouldnt of know that if they wouldnt of given me a chance.
