Looking through job opportunities online can be an exhausting task. Going through multiple job descriptions, mentally ticking off the required skill-sets, and sometimes coming across some bizarre requirements can be too much.
For example, a guy recently took to Reddit to share a job description posted by a company for a role related to research. One of the mentioned requirements is that the candidate has to come from a “good family”.
“You can have all the necessary skills but if your family is not ‘good’, you would not qualify,” the guy wrote.
Have a look at his post here:
Several people online were left confused. While some asked if the company was looking for a son-in-law, others joked about coming from dysfunctional families.
However, a few mentioned that inquiring about the family background was a common practice across companies.
