Company Looks For Candidate Coming From ‘Good Family’, Desis Ask ‘Looking For A Dulha?’

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.

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.
