I'm starting an internship with PWC this summer. Do I need to get a hair cut? I'm a tall white guy with shoulder length hair.

Yes sunshine! Cut your hair.

No, you don’t have to. As long as it doesn’t look like you just got out of bed you’ll be good.

You dont need to necessarily, but understand that you may be the butt end of some jokes, especially from older generation partners and MD’s who still believe in shaving everyday and keeping your hair kept. You’ll definitely get snickers behind your back over it, but nobody will DQ a fulltime offer over something trivial like that.

Don't cut your hair for a job...if you don't get an offer because you have long hair that's not a place you want to work is it?

I’ve grown my hair and beard out over the past year, and it’s about shoulder length. No one really cares anymore, and if they do are you really tryna work there? Would recommend looking groomed though. I keep it clean and styled and tbh I think it looks more professional than my previous, shorter but unkempt style.

You don’t have to, as in it is not against policy for a man to have long hair (but you should look groomed). Whether or not you will want to depends on your office / group / team. There are some very old school people still out there although everyone that I know in that category has relaxed a lot while we’ve been home (on the other hand, I’ve seen some absolutely wild stories on this app about overbearing managers and directors policing attire on internal video calls so again - they’re out there). Your best bet is to reach out to any associates you’ve met in your office and group and ask them. Agreed that you will not have an offer refused purely because of your hair though.

A senior on my team has long hair but it’s always in a ponytail and well kept. And he looks fine!!!

I am a manager and I don't care as long as the job gets done AND you keep it clean (including any beard), but some partners may say a few indirect comments. I think you would look cool. If you passed the interviews with professionals with long hair, I think you should be good.

I've grown my hair out during COVID and keep it neat and tame in a low ball or tail most days. Seriously keep the long hair.

As long as you maintain it, you’ll be fine

Well they gave you the offer right? You would not have made it that far if it was an issue.

How do you handle attraction in the work place. During my summer internship I was really attracted to this girl I shared a office with. She was way out of my league so I didn't even attempt to ask her out or anything. Plus you don't hookup where you vlookup. During one of the days she wore a really short skirt and I got a bit aroused. Since my housing was really close, during lunch I went home and fixed the issue. How do you handle being aroused at work?
