  • Political Correctness gone spastic

    Asking for experience in job ads could land you in hot water | The Register


    So what, we're not allowed to ask for PC hardware specialists now, because that discriminates against plumbers?


    Not allowed to ask for a qualified mechanic any more, because it discriminates against fucking retards who just dropped out of school and did nothing?


    Ffs.

    Yes, asking for experience discriminates against noobs with no clue.

    That's the fucking point??

        Playing devils advocate, it can be hard to break into a particular field and get some experience if people only want someone who already has it. Or if they say more or less 'don't bother applying unless you have 5 year experience' well that is discriminatory, because a young person may not have 5 years experience, it would be impossible for them to have 5 years experience, but they would be able to do the job just as well with their say 3 years of experience. If they really think they can't do it, don't hire them, but give them the chance to get to an interview and have the same shot as the guy with 5 years experience. It's policies like that which then make companies turn around and winge that there are no good staff out there.

          If someone only wants someone who can do the job without needing their hand held, then thats their perogitive.

          If they don't want to pay enough to get someone with experience, then they won't fill the position.

          You're free to apply for jobs that say "want 5 years exp", if you can demonstrate in your resume` or interview that you have desirable qualities you may well still get a look in.


          If they can fill the position by demanding that experience, then surely the person with 5 years is more deserving than some noob with none?


          Conversely, it's crap like this that is the reason it's fucking impossible to get decent staff these days unless you know someone who knows someone etc... relying on agencies is a waste of fucking time...

            Waits for someone to come in with the whooparse for your "spastic" derogatory reference to sufferers of Cerebral Palsy and for using a colloquialism for homosexuality in a negative manner.

            For shame.

                it costs time and money to conduct interviews and also to train people,,,
                so thats why they ask for what they are looking for upfront instead of wasting their time and the applicants time

                  That still doesn't stop inexperience people from applying. I see it in my industry all the time. The amount of applicants that know what to say in an interview is amazing but one must read in between the lines and ask questions that separate the good from the bad!
                  I guess that will be discrimination as well??

                    this PC bullshit is going way to far. An interesting point you make CC. Ive seen alot of applicants through the door in my industry with little to no experience at all when we have clearly asked for proficiency in several areas. This wastes my time and money as well as the aplicants. I foresee a day when some fuckwit will challenge the right of employers to choose whom they employ. When that day comes, I'll go start plucking pig farmers off their farms for cheap labour.

                      You can still ask for a tradesman with X amount of years experience, so long as you have grounds to do so, which is too easy to justify.

                        I understand that however my point was if people are pulling this sort of crap now it will only be a matter of time before some disgruntled noob goes the next step.

                          Hiring one equally qualified person over another is also discriminatory.
                          Asking for qualifications is discriminatory.
                          Asking for experience is discriminatory.
                          ^^ They're all justified though.

                          Putting a minimum age on applicants through one form or the other is a bit retarded though. There are quite a few 'age challenged' people who are more mature/responsible than people 5 years their senior.

                            Process of employee selection is discriminatory - you're discriminating against anyone who doesn't seem the best pick for the job at the time

                            Can see it now... Wesfarmers needs a new CEO - advertise on the telly and in the paper for everyone to take a number, raffle will be called later.

                            Even that's discriminating against people who don't buy the paper or watch the telly

                              Also, that article is a complete and utter beatup. The case it talks about refers to an AGE discrimination case, not experience or whatever. It is still possible for a young person to have the necessary experience. Just that some doo-gooder IR lawyer has seized on it to give his shitty practise a business boost.
