【厦门韦博英语】对中国的雇主来说 求职者“外表”很重要

 

To Chinese employers, a picture is worth a thousand-word resume.

对于中国的雇主来说,一张照片的价值相当与一份千字简历。

Nearly half of all employers in China like to check out online photos of potential candidates when hiring new team members, says a survey by global HR consultancy SHL. By contrastglobally, just 26% of respondents around the world say they do the same.

根据全球性人力资源咨询公司 SHL 的一份调查,中国约一半的雇主喜欢在雇用新职员时在网上查看求职者的照片,而世界范围内只有26%的受调查者会这样做。

Chinese job ads are notorious for their overtoccasionally blasé descriptions of the preferred height and weight and gender—and sometimes even astrological signs—of candidates. “Must be caucasian,” writes one laconic ad seeking an English teacher in Shenzhen. “Ages 18-35,” another typical ad runs. “Female candidates should be 158cm or taller, men 165 cm or above.”

中国的招聘广告因为偶尔有着挑剔求职者的身高体重性别的公然描述而臭名昭著,甚至有时还有挑剔星座(link)。深圳一个英语教师的招聘广告上简明的写道“必须是白人”。还有一个典型的招聘广告写着“18到35岁,女高于158cm,男高于165cm。”

So perhaps it’s no surprise that so many Chinese employers like to consult online social mediasites to track down photos of would-be employees. Still, Stuart Hedley, SHL’s managingdirector in Hong Kong, says that such a practice is worrisome. “You have to wonder, how validis using someone’s photo as a predictor of future success?” says Mr. Hedley.

于是,如此多的中国雇主在社交网络上查找求职者的照片就并不奇怪了。不过,SHL 香港的总经理 Stuart Hedley 却说这种行为是令人不安的。他说“你不得不怀疑,通过一个人的照片预测其未来的成功有多大的有效性?”

Valid or not, previous surveys have found that discriminatory job ads in China arewidespread. Last month, a study found that over 10% of job ads surveyed on Zhaopin, one of China’s most popular hiring boards, said they were explicitly seeking to hire a man or a woman. Among the ads recruiting women, 37% of the time, employers were also explicitly looking forattractive ones. Age was also seen as important, with age requirements surfacing in nearly a quarter of all ads.

不管是否有效,之前的调查已经发现,招聘广告上的歧视现象在中国很普遍。上个月,在智联招聘网站(中国最受欢迎的招聘平台之一)上的调查发现,超过10%的招聘广告明确的说明想招一个男的或女的。在招聘女性的广告中,37%的雇主明确的说明要招一个美女。年龄也很重要,约有四分之一的广告中提出了年龄要求。

Foreign-owned firms were less likely to discriminate based on gender than private Chinese firms or state-owned enterprises, according to the study, which was conducted by a pair of professors from UC Santa Barbara and Xiamen University.
