I am getting so sick and tired of employers acting like you owe hem the world in interviews. If you don't kiss their tails during the process..forget the job. They also judge you by your looks. If you are Black and walk into an all non-black job..forget the job, you aint getting it..and don't let your hair be non-relaxed or in its natural textured state smh. Yes I know the economy is bad in general but you can't deny that the Black unemployment rate is through the roof. Even the whole "dressing up" crap is bull, because everyone doesn't have money to wear the best clothes to an interview. You need MONEY to buy better clothes, but you need better clothes to get MONEY! It is sick how people play with peoples' lives like this.

That is why I want my own business..whenever that will happen. I am the type of person who would just talk to someone at an interview. A lot of these jobs read off of a sheet of paper and sound so fake doing it. Why can't you just talk to the person like a regular conversation? If you sound scripted, people are just gonna lie and tell you what you want to hear anyways. I would like to run a business where we are professional enough to make money but at the same time, we are just human. Yes people have committed crimes. Yes people have been fired. They have dogs delivering pizzas out here. I say that to say: Who the hell cares? As long as you can do the work, why is all this frivolous, months long HR process mess even necessary.It is like American idol when it comes to these interviews. Better learn how to juggle, walk on stilts or break out in a song or dance, etc., because its a circus act out here when it comes to getting a job.

Yea I just ranted, but do what. I am sick of this whole thing. These jobs don't care at all. They need to stop wasting our time with these interviews.

I'll agree with that. I've been able to buy a few nice things for myself to interview in, but it's hard when, as you pointed out, don't have the money. Clothes cost. That's why I try hard to purchase clothes on Sale. I picked up a nice gray Kathy Roberts dress with a jacket at Sears for $30. Just go to know where to look and when to look. But it's how I've tried to build my wardrobe on such limited funds.

There are times I just don't want to dress up, as most other job seekers would prefer to dress as casually as possible, but I do because it's ALWAYS better to look nice and professional than not.

I usually just buy something nice at the thrift store since I've always shopped there any way. But even they are starting to raise the prices with everyone jumping on the bandwagon. Value Village has 1/2 off Wednesday at the end of every month. You are right about the unemployment rate in the black community. You can tell what side of town you're on just by length of the line at the Unemployment office and you can bet dollars to donuts those naturals working in the corporate world were not naturals when they first got hired.

I would like to start my own business as well.

I frequent the thrift shops in upscale neighborhoods. I don't always get lucky but when I do, its a hit. Even if I have to get something altered, its much cheaper than off-the-rack prices.

I tend to go to the Goodwill stores, at least you can try stuff on there. Not saying other thrifts don't have changing rooms, but the Goodwill has nice, clean and well maintained changing rooms so I prefer the Goodwill stores to places like the Salvation Army and Community, a privately owned thrift in Gurnee.

While I tend to get tops and jeans from the Goodwill stores, I've never really taken the time to look at things I could wear for interviews and the few times I did, I found it difficult to get my hands on good pieces or pieces that were altogether, i.e. complete. Maybe it's easier for guys. My uncle was able to get a lot of nice suits, shirts, ties and what not for interviews at the Goodwill stores and paid a fraction of the price he would've paid had he gone to JCP or Sears.

I stopped going to Goodwill since they built all these brand new pretty stores and turned down some of my donations, which was not garbage either. ;\

When I donate, I now give to the local non profit stores that actually are happy and pleased to take whatever I give them. ;)

Bingo! and if a nice pair of slacks is too long, I usually just grab my needle and thread and hem it.

I've heard that at least some of the thrift shops around here have gotten picky as well. They advertise that they want "gently used" clothing. If a tv is too old (even if it works perfectly and is cosmetically in good shape) they won't take it.

You can get lucky. But most times I can find a blazer that matches close enough to the style and color of the skirt and I go from there. I like good will too, it's usually cleaner and like you said, you can try on the clothes, it's a little steeper than the other thrift stores, but you can find a good deal if you fine something nice that's the tag color of the 1/2 off that week.

I'm not against buying a quality two piece at a time from a regular store, but when money is tight that is not always feasible a moment. But I honestly just like to frequent thrift stores. When I was little my mama used to shop for us there, along with K-mart, and I was embarrassed, but when I became a freshman in HS I realized how economical is was for me to look for school clothes there. It got to the point where she had to beg me to buy something "new" lol.

Like Bluetea said, try going to the well-to-do part of town.

They will probably start taking them when they can resell them on ebay for a healthy profit. I have seen thrift shops around here do that with other items.

The tvs they won't take around here are only a few years old. The analogue sets which need a converter box. Tv works great, just needs a box. But then again, are those still sold?

There are two in my area that take anything. One even comes to your house and picks up the items. I've gone to their store numerous times. They are the nicest, most sincere people. They've told me that some people will literally drop off garbage to donate...that's sad and so wrong... :)

That is sad and wrong. I don't understand why people do that. But, there are things I don't understand why they aren't taken.

Our school tried to start making us where uniforms and we did for about half the year, until we all slowly reverted back to wearing street clothes lol. My mama liked it better when we had the uniforms. Simple dress, simple upkeep. Less time spent getting ready.

I shop at thrift stores. I have got to the point where I basically recycle the same interview outfits. I see some people up here say they have spent 200$+ on interview attire and grooming. Wow. I would never these days. Employers should stop being so uptight about it in general especially when they are just making you jump through hoops only not to land the job. I am not saying come in there in sweatpants in pajamas, but I am not about to break the bank as some of these so-called job coaches try to suggest talking about "It is a worthy investment." Yea...ok.

Here, the garbage people won't take TV/Radios/Stereos/computers etc. You have to take them to a reclamation site.

I have my one special interview outfit. The other day I had an interview and I was putting on my stockings and the toe part was open and my toe came flying through the stocking...haha Shows how long ago it was since I had an interview... *)

Wow I remember I was using the restroom before a group interview, as I was pulling my hose back up again, it tore.... all the way up the leg. I tried to scrap together what little money I had left ( because it was downtown and I had to pay for parking) I didn't have enough, so it was either go bare or go with a hole in it. I choose to go bare, (good thing I shaved the night before!) Lesson learned, I will have an extra pair on the side in the future lol.

It went well and they want to hire me I guess when I get my cosmetology license in the mail...This went better than my last interview on Wends for another company. I ruined that interview before I even walked through the door smh. A person almost hit me driving a truck and I yelled out "what the *heck* are you doing?" So there was this man walking in front of me, and we just happened to walk into the same building and he turned around and said "Are you here to interview with so and so" FML I thought to myself. I interviewed with the manager still, but I know that I lost that job. Lesson learned from this: Never fuss someone out on the way to the interview lol. You never know who is around!

Sounds good! That Wednesday interview sounds tough lol. In your defense, he should have been a more cautious and courteous driver. I've had so many hits and near misses it's not even funny. Trying to pull out a soft answer to turn away wrath is difficult indeed.

She never used her cosmetology lic professionally.

Good Luck!

Well I figured I would use it since I paid for it and these days it can bring more money than my college degree. I have never worked in a shop so I am nervous, but the manager said she believed in my ability and they have excellent training programs. It is a chain salon so I am not sure how I feel about working in a business heavily driven by retail quotas and commission. But I guess I am up for the challenge. I have to start somewhere. Still kinda nervous though :/

I used to spend a ton of money at the salon on my hair. This was a few years back before getting laid off due to outsourcing...I used to tip well too. I know there are folks out there that still will lay big bucks for someone to get their hair perfect. I hope you will be fortunate to get good clientele.

I didn't know that your sister was also my sister-in-law. She did the same thing. Went to school for it and did well in school. Only hair she ever did was her family. She never got a job in it and I don't know why. Maybe she lacked confidence. She worked at a job cleaning hotel rooms for barely over minimum wage. Tell me that makes sense when she was divorced and had 6 six to feed. She never would try to better herself and get a better job for a number of years.

What's funny is that she had nice hair for a while, now she has the crappiest looking hair around. Bad haircut, always looks like she just rolled out of bed and worst looking dye job. I think everyone is afraid to tell her how bad it really looks.

I once had a phone interview with a lady who just radiated bad attitude. I never heard back from her so I called her to follow up, but she never returned my calls. Finally I was able to get a hold of her and she was so rude to me that I ended up complaining to her supervisor about her.

If you think you can "trust" me I'll cut and style your hair. And in return, I'll "trust" you by giving me my close shave in the morning.

BTW I only do my shaving in the jacuzzi every morning, so bring your towel because I don't plan on having any clean ones that day.

I absolutely agree!!! I am a Black woman and I wear my hair natural and I know for a fact that these companies prefer to hire people who look like them which is discrimination. That is why it is so important that we have other means of generating income, yet I'm not business saavy. I too am so tired and pretty much ruled out being hired by these all white coporations...especially and unless I'm not willing to put a wig on it lol; but I remain hopeful that at some point I will land an income generating opportunity. We are truly living in unfair, sick times that smh. Keep me posted because I was just in NC last month until the governor cut my unemployment off and I had no opportunity for 1 tier. Utterly ridiculous!!

you don't even need to show them your hair, just show them your name and all bets are off lol. i know some companies that google your address just to see what part of town you live on... and not for commute reasons.
