Well, I've been reading on the net for job interviewing advice and I feel somewhat comfortable. I have a job interview w/ the only company I put in an application too (this friday). Honestly, this is the company I want to work with because it works with people (Mental/Behavioral Health company). The position is for case manger analyst, actually what I would enjoy doing. (There's not many men working there, the ones I do know of are higher ranks, ie. the bosses)
However, as you know from me being in this community, I have lonnnnnnnnnnnnnnng dreads....but I always keep them back in multiple hairbands, but these babies are thick. I also have 3 piercing in each ear, however I haven't heard any negative feedback about either, but I'm kind of worried.
The problem I don't have is being well dressed, or well groomed, even my dreads are groomed as much as they can be. In this job, if hired I would be dealing with people who have mental illnesses, drug abuse, behavioral problems etc. I feel my appearance will make it easier for clients to open up to me. They could see me as being equal and not intimidating. I just hope my interviewer gets those vibes off of me.
Actually, I don't really have a question =/ I just needed vent this. sorry =/
So I've seen that a few of you only have part of your hair dreaded, or have some shaved ( a la lishd ). Don't they eat the hair around it? Do you single them out and work on them? Pictures would also be nice, I'd love to see those dreads peeking out of your hair. :D
Ever have one of those dreams where you don't have dreads anymore? I just woke up from a dream in which I had long straight blonde hair. I love that moment of relief when you wake up, grab your head, and realize your dreadies are still there. Whewww!
I cut em! not off, but i cut most of the tips off, because they were undreaded and on my last nerve. now they are shorter than ever, and bouncy. i like it. i also gave in, and cut off my odd ball. i had ONE long dready left from the beginning, hed been going strong.. trying not to shorten, but it looked stupid having only one foot long dread on the side of my head. so i cut him off. ;[ i think im going to have a funeral for him. stupid huh?
