I have a job interview next Wednesday, it’s for a pretty sweet programming position. The company is not too big nor very old and they process inter-insurance data. It may sound boring but I think that it is a really good job for me right now. This will actually be my third interview with the company, the first was a general informational one, the second a technical knowledge quiz, both over the phone. For this final one the CEO want to “get to know” me to see if I’d be a good fit for them (and make sure I’m not a psycho or hippie I guess).
So thus is my dilemma: to shave the beard or not?
I started growing it on the weekend that Jacob was born, so 6 months now. I’d had planned to keep it a while as I hate shaving so much and it makes me look a bit older. However, another factor to consider in my “fitting in” with them, that cannot be ignored, is that the interview is in SLC. That’s right, Mormontown™. Do they have an RM sense? Will they look down on me for letting my wiskers grow past the skin, I mean it’s only natural right? Or will this, my sense of individuality, let them know that I’m a creative thinker – out of the box (when, anyone who knows me will say I’m clearly in the box). Eliza says that the question is up to me; though, for some reason I think that she slightly wants it to go, for personal or professional reasons I cannot tell. And I slightly want to keep it, except that I want this job moreso.
Friends, countrymen, lend me your ears!
Tell me what you think I should do and why (limit 100 words each will be considered).
I also might post pics of me currently for those that didn’t see me last week at the weddin’.
