If he likes the facial hair, but thinks it might be too scraggly at two inches to look professional, just trim it so that it's shorter.
Because he already admitted the reason he grew it out to two inches if that it is patchy, and looks bad shorter. In his instance the only options are leave it long or shave it off.
Only reason I still have my beard is that it does look good (actually, better) very close cropped. I will readily admit that a full, long beard will never go with being a professional for interviews, not matter how Grizzly Adams-esque it is.
Ah. Well, if what I'm envisioning in that case is correct, I'd shave it off.
If you can't grow it, don't wear it.
