Workamper Job observations
Posted On 08/09/2010 15:50:01

I have noticed that many workamper jobs function on gender assumptions as well as visual bias.  So many ads that I have come across describes jobs via gender assumptions.  ie.  Ladies will work in the office and men will work with maintenance or grounds. I find this type of assumption irritating, since I am often better at maintenance and my husband is excellent with costumer service! Why even make gender an issue here? 

 

The other observation I had is one of visual bias.  Why ask for photos of workamper with the resume? If someone can offer me a practical reason as to why this is needed, please let me know!  But as far as I can tell, such a request means that potential employers are filtering applications partly because of visual presentation.

 

What do you all think? R
