This is exactly why in UK one it's common practise to never ever put a photo or birthdate on a CV.
I was like, "Wait, you don't even put your birthdate on your CV?" and then I remembered that no one does that in Canada or the states either. D'oh. And I think it might even be more anonymous in France? I think we do the birthdate and photo in Japan as well. Boooh.
ALL MY FEMINIST NERVES ARE SCREAMING.Oh dear god.
Yeah, my reaction was like, "Seriously? He said that? He actually said that?" Kind of horrible but hilarious at the same time. I HAD to draw it.
OMG!!!! But it's like so.... this happens sooooo often!!! What a shame... (K)
I know, it happens all the time. I really don't think the photo is a great idea in general, for both men and women. Even if we're actively TRYING not to be judgmental, I think we're clearly swayed by the photo. We react positively to attractive, friendly-looking people, and I don't think that can be helped...right?
Nop.... I don't think so... We are made to have those peferences! Schade, aber es ist leider so! (K)
