Getting hired...

the hiring process in China vs US

overcast 6 °C

The economy has not been kind this year and many people are search for employment. Most US applicants rely on their well tailored, expensive detailed CVs which are being compared with other well qualified applicants, competition is tough.

US interviewers are somewhat particular, but not as particular as in China. I received an article via email about their hiring process for flight attendants.


I sent the link to friends & families, I received the most unusual replies.

That is to be expected a country with a billion people and more. The job seeking process is really difficult. Of course that push the people to be more competitive. Finding a job is a full time job indeed my own opinion of course, it will only get more difficult in the future.

Cheers friend

I've been looking for a part time job to supplement my income. When and where can I apply as a stewardess inspector for Chinese and Japanese Airlines? I would give them very rigorous tests, not because I want to but because I am dedicated.

Hey, you would never have sent the article if you didn't know how we would respond. Men are very predictable when it comes to things like that. It's sort of a Pavlov's dogs response. Built in. You were just being naughty by ringing the bell.

We love you too.

Actually, I was expecting another type of response in general which ONE woman did. Americans claim getting a job is tough competition, well, this is an example of a location much tougher than just reviewing one's CV. So what I've done no such test with using Pavlov's technique, you just proved that men first respond on their hormones rather the subject topic.

If they are looking for perfect teeth, then they must only be hiring upper middle class. I would imagine the poor would not have a chance.
