Anonymous asked: Hey your really adorable and alternative and i'm looking for advice. I have ginger waist length dreads and a bridge piercing, i'm having a hard time getting a job due to being a little alt. I was wondering if you have a job and if you have any advice :) thanks in advance lovely !
Aah~ thank you very much c:
Hmm, I think this very much depends on where you live and what sort of job you’re applying for! Currently I don’t have a regular job due to my studies but during the last 8 years of looking alternative I’ve had a few.
Where I live I consider people to be pretty open-minded and more easily accept things such as moderate facial piercings and unusual hairstyles/-colours. When you’re looking for a job that is heavily customer service you do have an slight disadvantage if you look “weird” tho. If I have an hunch that the employer might be a bit on the conservative or strict side I usually tone down my style a bit with lighter make-up or a wig. Tho it might be difficult with long dreadlocks x__x I don’t have any piercings but I guess I would change them for less obviously visible ones too if I did.
In the end I think it really comes down to the area you live in and the job you apply for, since attitudes can differ so much! Changing yourself so much it becomes uncomfortable because of a job for a long period of time isn’t really a thing I’d advise to do. It’s ok for some short periods of time when you just need it for teh $$$ but in the end if the working atmosphere is eating you from the inside it isn’t worth it.
Regards I say this only from my own experience.
