(salam) I've applied to more than a dozen security contractors for jobs in the US, and none of them allow me to be employed with a beard (they said they'll overlook a moustache though...). I looked into Ayatullah Sistani's website and found this http://www.sistani.org/index.php?p=855722&id=1136 Question :Is it permissible to shave beard, if one is faced with an unavoidable or a difficult situation? Answer :A Muslim is allowed to shave his beard, if he is compelled to do so or if he is forced to shave it for medical reasons, etc. It also allowed if he fears harm to his life by not shaving or if growing the beard would put him in difficulty (for example, if it becomes a cause of ridicule and humiliation that is not normally tolerable by a Muslim). Does this count as a "difficult" situation? I am pressed for money and time, as well as running out of options given the state of the economy... Also, one of the main reasons they don't allow beards is because the gas masks used by security companies and the police force will not seal if there is facial hear present, except for a little stubble. Please help me out here folks...
