quote of the day

EMPLOYERS have been reminded not to put up job vacancy advertisements with a prerequisite for candidates who speak Chinese, reported China Press. The daily quoted Human Resources Minister Datuk Seri Dr Fong Chan Onn as saying that his ministry’s officers have been told to relay the message to such employers. “Employers should provide language courses to workers who are poor in a particular language.”

Well said. The above rule, if strictly complied, will produce a job ad like the following.

Professor of Chinese literature needed. No Chinese proficiency is required. Chinese training will be provided.

And you would wonder why we need any prerequisite at all, for any job advertisements. Every skill can be trained, given infinite amount of time and resources.
