I wish someone would put this in print, Travelnurse. You would be interested. At a recent health care employment conference, one of the nations largest hospital chains did a "hiring audit" and while you cannot discriminate based on age, gender, race...etc., it seems the number one listed (internal confidential audit) reason for not hiring a new health care worker was Tattoos and Piercings. Just something work knowing.
The reason listed? "Obvious lack of professionalism and judgement". Under comments, people in the HR area said that "it was akin to hiring someone coming in for an interview with filthy hair or horribly stained cloths. It means they don't care what message they project to the public and thus we don't want them representing our organization".
I am not sure this will ever be put in "print", it was just a verbal lecture, but wow, it spoke volumes again to why visible tat's at least, are such a bad career move for anyone...especially in Health Care, for sure.
