  • Accessories during interviews

    I was wondering what your all opinions are of wearing some sort of breast cancer accessories for an interview. It is a big thing for me as my long time girlfriend has the Brca1 gene and both her mom and grandmother have both had breast cancer. I have things like a breast cancer lapel pin, the pink Imagine bracelet(which I do wear almost daily), and a breast cancer tie (it isnt over the top, just has a stripe of ribbons like every 5 inches). I'm not talking about wearing all of these things at once, but what about 1 or 2 of them for it? BTW real men do wear pink.

    I get that it's a cause that's close to your heart, but what reason is there for making a concentrated effort to wear it for an interview? What benefits do you think you're going to get for wearing it?

    If you always wear the bracelet, then wear that and forget about the lapel pin and tie.

      +1. It's a great cause of course but the folks doing your interview aren't going to be interested in your agenda or beliefs but whether you are a good candidate.

        We always advise applicants to wear conservative business attire.

        Anything else is distracting and could be perceived as an attempt to influence someone's decision.


        Yep, not a bit afraid to wear pink.....................but I am also not going to wear my "Save the Boobies" tshirt to work.
        Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

            Thank you all for your relies I will keep doing what I've been doing and just push the bracelet up on my forearm when I go for the interview that way it isn't visible. I understand your point of views with the attempt of biasing, I was just looking at it as the interview is to let the panel know who you are and wearing the bracelet even if hidden is who I am. Thank you all.

              Wearing the bracelet hidden and leaving the other items at home is the best solution.

              You keep true to your belief, and avoid any chance of it causing an issue.

              Good luck.

                No one cares what causes you support. Go to your interview dressed appropriately.
