I am planning on applying to work for a major tech company. I have worked for smaller-sized companies before that conducted business online and there was never a policy for dress code. It seems like the companies that don't deal with customers face-to-face don't really care about physical appearances.
I also have many friends who work or have worked for tech companies and they described the workplace setting to be relaxed about one's physical appearance.
Over the past year, I have changed my look drastically: I cut all of my hair off, I pierced my ears, and I pierced my nose. Some might say that I look like a gangster.
Assuming I have great talent and skills in whatever role I choose to apply for in the tech world, do you think that my current physical appearance might hinder me from getting a job in a tech company?
