I know of a story where someone shaved for a job interview at a non-Jewish company and didn't get the job when the interviewer told him how all the Jews in the office don't shave and you do.
Wow. There is a similar R' Yoel Gold story, where a man went to a job interview and decided not to wear his Yarmulke for whatever the reason was. He gets to the interview, and the Boss himself was a Frum Yid, obviously wearing a Yarmulke... He didn't get the Job...

My father loves saying this one over:
He was hired at Atlantic Records and he asked his Rebbe, Rav Shimon Shusholts zatzal, if he should get rid of his beard, tuck in tzitis, etc. The Rav leaned back in his chair and requested, "Describe your co-workers..." When my father was done listing dyed hair color and half-shaved heads and rings in scary places, the Rav smiled and said, "Keep your beard."

If a Kohen accidentally ל״ע has a finger chopped off, can he bring it to the hospital to get reattached? (A Kohen is forbidden to be מטמא from אבר מן החי)
There’s a comprehensive Sefer on Tumas Kohanim (recent-forgot the name) who has a comprehensive discussion of multiple achronim dealing with this shailah. The consensus among most of them is that he can.

Can you quote any reputable Ashkenazi posek that is matir kol isha on a recording?
I only heard of Reb Ovadya (Sefardi).

Though it isn't ideal for a Women to be Motzei you in any case... 
Thanks for the advice, from now on, I'll be making Kiddush [Just as I've been doing for many years BH].

not as a cleaning lady does. no mopping, vacuming, scrubbing with bleach, cleaning the windows, doing laundy, picking up muktzeh, etc. etc.
No one needs a cleaning lady to come sweep...

Are you allowed to have her do those things on shabbos anyhow? Maybe they have her there to wash dishes and clean the kitchen after the meals?

That said, it;'s a lot easier to have a non jew.
