I've got a job interview coming up. Against common knowledge and general expectations, I want to attend the interview WITH STUBBLE.
Considering the following:
I'm only just recently 18 and the position is better suited to someone with more maturity and experience than a typical 18 year old. A close shave makes me look younger, with a baby face.
My facial hair is substantial, not patchy and weird looking. It's looks clean when it's short.
It covers small pimples and shapes my jaw nd **** so I think I look better with it than freshly shaven, means more confidence which is definitely a bonus in a job interview.
However, the job is in retail, so I have a face-to-face role with customers.
And of course the employer isn't aware of my reasons to have stubble, so I run the risk of just being that one guy that couldn't be ****ed to shave for his interview.
So what do?

If the guy/gal interviewing you disqualifies you for having stubble, you do not want to work for them.
Why you might ask? Because who the **** cares about stubble, that's why.
For reference, I work in a professional environment (engineering firm) and my boss (part owner) will typically wear crocs in the office even when showing clients around. At the end of the day, if you are the right person for the job, you should be hired regardless of your facial hair situation.

Yes, by wearing stubble they will be so in awe of your 18 yr old manliness that they cannot read your age on your resume.
I think it is a no win to wear stubble- at best, they just won't care and you stay neutral. At worst, the guy thinks you are a lazy/arrogant jerk who didn't shave up for the interview. There is no upside I see.Misc Aussie Crew
