I miss living in places where it's illegal to require photos as part of a job application. This probably gets less flack than the "we want to hire a caucasian and we don't care if he/she can speak English or not" approach though.
Educational background and experience: absolutely. Completely irrelevant things like age, gender and nationality: absolutely not. And I have never asked for the birth certificate of anyone from Chicago, whether or not he's black. In fact, I've never asked for anyone's birth certificate, ever.
Anyway, I'm looking for an English teacher too. Requirements below.
Weight: 40-50 kg
Height: 155-165 cm
Other: must be available to 出差, must be able to work overtime, must be able to work non-standard hours, must be available on call.
Compensation: non-competitive, but great benefits.
APPLICATION MUST INCLUDE PHOTO.
Oh my bad, I mixed up my girlfriend ad with my job description. To be a little bit more low-key, I should have left out all those discriminatory requirements, and just asked for a picture. I could tell from the picture if she was attractive anyway.
Actually, in Beijing some companies won't hire me because I have a shaved head. I'd better put someone else's picture on my resume.
Hahahahahaha ... when is your birthday, I can buy you the same wig that my wife's parents are using ...
DD, your wife's parents are both men?I guess the "Dad" must be the older one. Props for him finding a "wife" so much younger.
Jiena, In the US I would say experience and connections are the two main requirements, in that order. In China, I disagree with you. I think having a "good dad" and a degree from a name school will get you a lot further than color or passport.
Qwert, that's not the first time I've heard it, but I still like it.
