Okay, I know this is my third post of the day, but.... I'm feeling a little uncertain about what to do. There's a job fair coming up next week that I'm planning on going to. The fact that I don't have anything appropriate to wear for job hunting is one problem, but the real issue is: should I wear hijab or not? Niqab would have to be out, unfortunately.
Being single and depending solely upon myself for financial support is great, but also hard because I HAVE to have a job within the next two months. I'm afraid that if I go to this job fair wearing hijab, no company recruiters will want to talk to me, or that if I go to an interview wearing hijab, they'll reject me because of it. Yes, it's illegal, but I've heard a lot of stories from women who experienced that.
What do you guys think I should do? Wear a nice, "professional"-colored hijab, or not wear it?
Either way, once I land a job, I'm totally going to be wearing my hijab. Niqab will depend on what sort of job I get --- if I have to wear an I.D. badge with my photo on it, then I can't wear the niqab at work (for face recognition/security purposes).
