It aint going to help your case.
This is a discussion on Open Carry at a Job interview... within the Open Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I will be applying for a few jobs in an open carry state. Unfortunately my license is not good because I am an IL resident ...
I will be applying for a few jobs in an open carry state. Unfortunately my license is not good because I am an IL resident with a Florida license.
So I will be open carrying as it is legal. My question is has anyone else open carried to a job interview? And if so how did it go?
When I go to an interview I do everything I can to make sure I get the job or a second interview; it is your choice but I suspect that with the overall attitude towards firearms today open carrying is likely to handicap your chance of being selected for the job. I am sure there are employers and situations where this assumption is not true but generally I would not open carry if I wanted the job.

I don't think this forum will give any different answer that the other forums you posted this.

Probably the only home based FFL that doesn't do transfers.
Not sure that would help you get the job.
OK, I'm nipping this one in the bud early. If anyone has actually done this, they can PM the OP. This thread is going to end up the same way it did elsewhere.
Personally I think the idea of OC'ing to a non-firearm related job interview is about the biggest mistake possible next to showing up barefoot and in a wife-beater.
As I read in the "other" thread, I will say that if you're wanting to gauge the employers view on 2A, just try Google or read over Company Policy.
