  • While I don't find a tiny nose stud offensive, I have to be honest and tell you that, as a business owner myself, I would definately not hire someone with a lip or eyebrow piercing. I also do not want someone with a tongue ring, because I want them to be able to talk to the customer. Now, with that being said, there are certain types of jobs, where it just wouldn't matter.

  • Depends on the job you are interviewing for.

  • It depends on the job. If you're interviewing at a conservative company or industry, like banking, lose the piercings for the interview.

  • Yes. I have over 15 years of human resouces and recruiting experience.
    When you go on a job interview, you always dress conservatively. Wear a suit, a skirt and jacket, or dress pants and a jacket. The first three things someone conducting an interview takes in are hair, nails and shoes. Your hair should be clean, combed, conseratively colored; your nails should be clean, filed, and unpolished (or perfectecly manicured in a neutral color); your shoes should be clean and simple, like plain pumps with a low heel.
    You should be prepared for the interview; anticipate the questions that they will ask, and ask them thoughtful intelligent questions.
    Bring three copies of your resume.

  • I think you should remove piercings for a job interview; just to be safe.
