Acne and Job Interviews



Day 21 of Accutane (Claravis)

Today I had an interview for my absolute dream job. I should have been solely focused on the interview, how I wanted to answer the questions, what I wanted to say, etc., but a big part of me was consumed by the four massive cysts on my left cheek. I wish that I could go out in public and feel confident, but no matter how hard I try, I know the way that my face looks, I know the huge cysts that people are staring at when they talk to me. I feel hopeful about the interview, it definitely went well, but I hate the way that I feel about myself. The chapped lips and dry skin doesn't help either...
Hopefully in the next few weeks I will start seeing some improvement.

I have this issue too,   I'm applying for finance jobs and with the whole business look I feel I'm being knocked down a rung in terms of maturity and feel like I may not be taken as seriously because of my acne.  On top of that you need to be the picture of confidence witch I cant always force myself to be.
