How do you find work? A. Lose the visible piercings and do what you can to hide your tattoos. B. Show up for your interview in clothing suitable for an interview. ( get help from your grandparents on this, your parents might not know) C. Remember that you are ASKING for a job. You are not owed one. D. Show respect for your potential employer and do everything you can to demonstrate that you will show respect to his customers. E. Last but not least........this isn't the school system. You won't receive points for participation or a trophy just for showing up. You will have to represent the company in a way that the boss finds appropriate, regardless of whether a customer may "dis" you, or you will be shown the door, no trophy or anything. Welcome to the real world.
