Do You Have To Have Beard To Be A Network Manager? [Female Network Managers Excused]
I was attended a meeting a couple of days ago where all Network Managers were male. We were asked [in a jokey manner] if a Network Manager must have a beard [all Network Managers at the meeting had beards]
Following this I thought I would ask Edugeek members about their beard/non-beard status [sorry ladies: Don't know how to attach a poll that you could take part in also]

@Netman, @bossman and my other friend whose name on here I can't remember!!!! (snc?stc? @sbc I think) are all network managers and do not have beards. Don't think @Oaktech does either.

Just a 70's revival thing. Theres plenty of beards on the TV that you wouldn't have seen 10yrs ago.
We'll look back and laugh at ourselves.

Well, mrwITch has always had a beard although now that he is looking for a job I have persuaded him to shave it off for interviews as it is completely grey and makes him look much older than he is.
Mind you, he is a 70's guy...

This one tickles me as I was thin and clean-shaven when I started here as a Technician, while my boss was "larger" and had a thick beard (half-Italian so it grew back in days even if he did shave it all off).
Now I too am broader than I used to be and have a permanent beard... and my Technician is thin and clean-shaven.
So yes, around here maybe it is a bit of a pattern!

I couldn't grow a beard if I wanted to. My face isn't hairy enough

I have a bit of a beard now, which is met by mixed reviews amongst the staff. I dunno, I like it.
I have to say, there is a high percentage of IT staff who have beards.

@Kwagner and a few other network managers I know that don't have a beard ( well at least I don't think they do ). Correct me if im wrong !!

im a tech, but I can grow a decent length beard in a week if I dont shave, having to shave daily here to keep it manageable, when it gets longs its horrendous shaving it

No beard but rarely clean shaven unless I've had a hair cut in which case it gets trimmed

I've just looked it up I thought I had a 'Van Dyke' but I actually have a 'Door Knocker'...

A door-knocker IS the same thing as a Van Dyke. According to your link, anyway?
