What jobs are beard friendly?

Asked by dreamwolf (3142 points ) September 9th, 2011

I live in San Diego, California and it’s rare to see working people with beards. I have a beard, and I want a job that is beard friendly. Am willing, to keep beard clean and full with a trim.

I think you could apply just about anywhere with a beard, especially on the West Coast.

Obviously I don’t want to change your question, but like @marinelife stated, just about all jobs you can think of would hire bearded people provided that you are clean and groomed, but that goes for everybody, bearded or not, so it might be worth asking (also) which jobs aren’t suited for beard men.
I’ve heard once that firefighters can’t have facial hair, because the oxygen masks they wear should be sealed close to their skin…, facial hair would leave minuscule openings for dangerous gasses to sieve through.

Firefighters (and others who occasionally have to wear respirators) often can keep their beards, but they usually have to be trimmed to permit skin-to-respirator-seal contact at the points where their respirator will fit around their mouths and chins)
Artist’s model (and artist, for that matter)
Novelist
Truck driver
Movie director
Actor
Mobster (inspired by your own not infrequent concerns!)

Yeah, it’s going to be a pretty long list, all right.

The only think I can think of that isn’t beard friendly in my area is CEO and Television News Personality.
