dreads jobs employment issues
I agree with SE. I'm in the same boat right now. I am in between jobs and searching like crazy for a new one but I just started dreading regardless. I would like to think that if you make a good impression at an interview that even a close minded employer would look past appearances but sadly that is rarely the case. Just do your best to make a good impression and be yourself. If they like you enough you'll get in. Don't change who you are for them even though it's not easy to find a job. It's better to find a job you will be happy and accepted in because chances are you will stay with that company longer than one that you change yourself for. If you comb them out and then get a job and start dreading again you may get talked to about them because the general public has a negative view of dreads. All you can do is show them that people with dreads aren't all bad and hopefully over time they will be more accepted as a whole in our society. I am the type of person that actually brings up things like this at an interview. As long as you bring it up in a careful way a lot of the time you can get an idea of how the employer feels about them right then and there rather than wondering later if that was why you never got a call back. I have had just about every color of the rainbow in my hair and also have visible tattoos so I tend to ask if those things are going to be an issue and if they are, well I'll find something more for me. Best of luck!
