Job Search Tip of the Week #74: Tattoos Great For Play, Not For Work!

Happy Monday!

Last week a good friend and human resources professional Stania Romain, posted a question asking her friends what they thought about tattoos…particularly those on the neck.  After I responded I asked her to write a Tip of the Week on this subject for us and she agreed.  Here is what Stania Romain (our first guest writer) had to say:

Tip of the Week: Tattoos Great For Play, Not For Work!

As a seasoned HR professional, I can tell you that most employers already have a pretty good idea whether or not they want to hire you before they meet you since your skills are already on paper.  But what they don’t know is how you communicate, how you present yourself and how you will represent their company. They want to see your product – meaning U on display!

Tattoos are part of that product and, if visible, can stop you from making the GREAT impression needed to land the job. While fun and expressive, visible tattoos send the wrong message for MOST professional positions.  Whether you agree or not a tattoo in the wrong place can break you.

Tattoos on the neck are at the top of my NO list, followed by those on the hands and for you Mike Tyson fans – those on the face. They speak louder than your experience so please stay away from them.

Before you decide on where to place that next tattoo, think about your professional goals and how its placement will affect the most important product – U!  It’s not just about getting a job, it’s about your career SUCCESS now and for your future!

From HR to U!

    Nice job, Stania, and I agree 100%. I’m in the creative industry so conservatism tends not to be the norm. However, when I’m doing the hiring, I still look for professionalism first. It’s just as important as their skill level. I guess we were taught the same principles at our Dear Old Orange & Blue! 🙂
