Be brave: The world is cruel and unfair. If you have visible acne at a job interview, you are likely to be passed over as it's seen as a sign of poor self-care. You won't prevent the side-effects of isotretinoin, but your dermatologist can help manage them. If you truly need this medication, i think you'll be very glad. Best wishes.
