Woman battling cancer shocked by interviewers’ comments on her hair | USA TODAY

Krystal Garmon battled multiple bouts of cancer, but when a job recruiter made negative comments about her hair after a job interview, she was hurt.

Battling cancer is easier than looking for a job.

That's how jobseeker Krystal Garmon started her viral post on LinkedIn last week after she wrapped up an interview with a mental health company and overheard interviewers making fun of her appearance.

"She had a head cap on, did she know she was in an interview?" she recalled in the post.

  1. Sorry to hear about your experience. You are beautiful and your healing is more important than what they think.

  2. I’m sorry you had to experience the ugliest of humanity. When you’re fighting to live. You’re a beautiful lady, with long hair or a little bit of hair. It’s about what’s inside our hearts! I hope you’re doing good kicking that cancer’s butt. Hurt people. Hurt people..
    I red that one day and I remember those four words. Wishing you all the best, โ™ฅ๏ธ โ™ฅ๏ธ

  3. Would they have done that with a guy wearing a cap?๐ŸคฆBoneheads. Their loss!๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ‘

  4. That sad-looking headcap is like wearing an undershirt to a job interview. Very unprofessional. The woman should be happy that she overheard constructive criticism. Put on a nice headscarf.

  5. Iโ€™m sorry about your negative experience with someone who doesnโ€™t understand the beauty and strength you have. Not even mentioning the struggle and battles that you have gone through and will have to go through.

    Please donโ€™t ever forget
    You are so amazing and beautiful .
    Stay Strong

  7. Mrs Sonia the bitcoin trader is legit and her method works like magic I keep on earning every single week with her new strategy

  8. It is extremely disheartening how cruel and unjust people can be, Part of our humanity has been lost on our youth who grow up not understanding what empathy means or just plain compassion for one another and seeing and understanding the type of different conflicts we go through each day as human being living on the same planet. Empathy may be lost on our youth the millennials and Gen-z but maybe the older generation can help bridge the gap between what the Boomers understand and what the younger generation does not understand. To be human is to understand 3 key components of humanity and there are 1. Intelligence, 2. Common Sense, 3. Empathy (and this one is the most important) because Empathy allows us to put ourselves in the other persons shoes and helps us to understand what they are going through. Thanks and please be kind to one another

  9. Empathy would tell us that this woman is going through one of the most difficult part of her life and trying to stay positive in her attitude, demeanor and feeling each and every day of her life. We as human being should be more supportive in our actions and in our thoughts towards this woman.
