What do u pple think? Do you think it would be inappropriate to wear an earring to interviews? Its no flashy or anything - just a small stud. Im not sure if employers will find that a negative thing - or is it wodely accepted in todays work place?

Thanks!

    It'd probably be accepted, but I think it should be taken out, just to be on the safe side.

    Having said that, I suppose it depends on what type of job, and if you take it out... could it be construed, later, as deception?

    It depends on how confident you are, and how much you need the job, and as J9 says wht the job is.

    If it's a cleaning job, they aren't going to care.

    If it is a design or hair dressing job, they aren't going to care.

    If it is a bank job, you may want to take it out and wait until your probationary period is over.

    Me, <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/cool.gif"&gt; I'm sufficiently good that I wear what I would expect to wear on the job and let them know my views. If they don't like it, they don't employ me. But this is done from the security of an existing job, and a good deal of rare experience.

    Depends on the job, city-centre bar job, good idea. White collar office job, bad idea. Although the place may be OK about wearing earings to work, they may see it as unprofessional if you wear them to an interview.

    I wouldn't personally, but then, i am not pierced! Do what feels right for the job, and good luck, tell us if you get the job m8.

    Like all the others, it depends on the job, if you are in a professional atmosphere.. as a guess, an interview at a record store (shows my age, huh) or a guitar shop, I dont think no ones gonna care.

    Keep it out for the interview and first day.

    Then once you get in, you can read their code of dress / conduct and find out for yourself if it's acceptable to wear at work - should be though

    :yes:

    or ask at the interview what their policy on jewellery is.
