Prior to being diagnosed I was looking to change jobs. I'm done with active treatment and would like to begin my search again, but I'm struggling with whether now is a good time due to my appearance. I've found a posting for great job but haven't applied. My current job is flexible and fine with me wearing head coverings due to hair loss from chemo. My eyebrows are very fine and I have about 1/2 inch of hair on my head with some thin spots. I don't leave the house without my head covered and I get strange looks when talking to people who can figure out what is "missing" on my face. I choose to not wear a wig and have never worn make-up so drawing on eyebrows is not really something I would be able to do. I am wondering how to address the hair loss in an interview. Do I wear a scarf and hope it's not seen as unprofessional? Do I figure out how to draw eyebrows for the day of an interview?
