        There comes a time in life when you should quit trying to define yourself with your outward appearance

          There comes a time when the skills you have to offer to the world out weigh the outward projection of what defines you as 'you' physically. You can choose to give your first impression using your gifted looks, or you can choose to give your first impression by using your skills (inter-personal, physical, learned, what ever they may be). You are still an individual how ever you choose. This choice you make may or may not define your career path in life.

          Employers seldom evaluate you on apperance (causing termination of your employment) after they hire you(in this trade). Unfortunately not all employers are as open minded as others (including the views/ideals posted). As discussed in this thread, there are open minded employers out there, as much as there are many traditional thinking employers. When I say open minded, I'm speaking of the ones that see beyond the first impression. New age, or whatever you want to call it.
          The whole world is a big wheel, and big wheels turn slowly, and sad as it may be, the majority of current employers out there are looking for the right fit, a fit that is tried, tested, and assumed to be true.

          Two years ago I applied for my current welding position. I've had a shaved head for ten years and carry some tats, however I grew my hair out and went to the interview in a long sleeve shirt. Within the first week of work, I had my sleeves rolled up and a clean shaven head. Within the first couple of days worked, I found that my co-workers had piercings, shaved heads, and exposed tats. The hair thing was a percautionary measure in case the hireing employer had stereotypes, same with the covered arms. I found out that my employer works really hard to see past individuallity statements, and looks deeper into every opportunity that they are presented. The shop I work in has a diverse culture of old and new...

          Little hair not by choice vs: no hair by choice, fresh canvis vs: full shirts or sleeves, I was pierced by a piece of scrap steel vs: prince albert.

          Ok, seriously, like I stated, big wheels turn slowly.

              Piercings and welding

              I think too many people are more worried about what people look like rather then what their skills are! Who cares how many piercings he has, as long as he can weld! Who knows maybe I am bias.
