When I read s44t like that, I'm glad I'm self-employed an not subject to the whim of shallow people. I hope you're at least successful at whatever you do to think you're justified in being put off by tattoos.

Holy fuck I am glad I don't work in an industry like that. There is something embarrassing about that story and it sure as shit isn't the tattoo.

A lot of people I know and work with won't hire people with visible tattoos. Same with piercings. Yes, even in tech. In Silicon Valley. Much more so in banking and law.

In client facing positions, you have to consider this even if the hiring manager himself doesn't care.

It's just like how companies won't even consider people because of where they went to college.

The tattoo was the word "Power".

Moral of the story: make good decisions about your personal appearance in the workplace.

I'm curious to know what you think a tattoo revealed about him as a person.
post #116860 of 117666
so you hired him for having a stupid tattoo. unless he wasn't Caucasian and he was doing the inverse of white person getting foreign language character to mean trite word tattoo.

moo would you hire a guy with a prince Albert?

And this is why the older tech companies became irrelevant when companies like Apple and Netflix came around.

I'm sitting at Apple right now after walking in a candidate. Think again. Depends on the hiring manager or their boss.

If people are equally qualified, it makes sense to choose the person least likely to potentially offend/be written off/judged/whatever.
post #116863 of 117666
Well, it's the company's loss then. Some of the brightest people I know are covered in tattoos and piercings.

I don't have any tattoos or piercings, but I sure as hell know better than to prejudge people who do.
post #116864 of 117666

Why can't you goobers grasp that a lot of people see tattoos negatively? If you are hiring for a client-facing position and one of two equally qualified candidates has a visible tattoo, why in the world would you take that risk?

I think that movie "The Internship" with Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughan was a really good and unbiased example of how a progressive tech company functions in it's diverse hiring practises. you should take note, moo
