    Better you present yourself the better chance you have of getting an interview.

    Just a tip, these two quotes from you indicate to me, a general lackadaisical attitude and a sense of entitlement. In order to successfully navigate the working world, you'll want to consider losing both. If not the other alternative is to be the absolute best of the best at what you do. This is from a former HR manager, and one of the most open minded people you will ever meet, if you turned up to an interview with piercings in your face and long unkempt hair, I wouldn't even interview you. This is not judgement mate, it's just a fact of life you have to get used to now that you want to join the workforce. Good luck with the hunt!

    If you're going for a customer service position, or dealing with the public, they want someone who is palatable working behind the counter. Its their business and they need customers in the store to make a profit, so if they want to be judgemental when hiring someone they have every right to be.
