- Producer24/08/2016Women shouldn't have to take off their engagement rings to get hiredEarlier this week I replied to a post written by a male recruiter/search executive. He suggested women should not wear their engagement rings to a job interview in case their ring was larger than the other women in the office who might see her as...

@Grace Killelea, great post, I can't believe that there are people giving that kind of advices nowadays...
And totally agree, I don't want to work in a company that thinks that my engagement ring is more important that my talent.25/08/2016 #8 Javier beBeeWe have a SUPER team with a lot of women :-) CC @Flavia Toro Rodriguez @Ana Elisa Llera @Marta Carretero Garcia @Netta Virtanen @Marta Pardo Morales @Adriana Bevacqua García @Virginia Silveira @Cristina Valmaseda de Leiva @Ana María Fernández Soriano @Teresa Gezze @Catalina Serrano @Tifany Rodio and more !!!! all the team at https://www.bebee.com/producer/@javierbebee/bebee-the-team25/08/2016 #7 Cepee TabibianWelcome to beBee @Grace Killelea! This was an eye opening article! I've briefly worked in HR and the thought of evaluating a candidate based on a wedding ring sounds ludicrous. Suprised as well that this mentality exists for some in the workplace. Thanks for sharing!24/08/2016 #3 Brian McKenzieJust 2.7% odds of getting hired. Delicious. 8?/ I am going to have a drink and ponder the appropriate engagement ring for my spirit animal. PS - a pre-nup is nearly as patently worthless as the marriage certificate / license - neither has a legal binding status or precedence once lawyers and judges appear. Ask around.24/08/2016 #2 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian"When a man gives a woman an engagement ring, he buys the least expensive ring that he believes it will take to get her to agree to the proposal. " SAY WHAT?? What is this? A proposal or a contract negotiation?
Maybe I'm no authority on the subject. I've been married twice. Or, does that MAKE me an authority? I mean, two women said, "Yes." Whatever.
A man buys the most expensive ring he can afford. I have never heard of anyone doing anything else.
On to the subject of this post. I guess it's possible that some people would be put off by a huge rock. Some may also be put off by a little one, or none at all. Let's just leave it at some people will be put off by (fill in just about anything here).
I agree, @Grace Killelea, the whole idea is ludicrous. I may not have hired as many people as you, but I don't think I've ever hired, or not hired, someone based solely on their jewellery or lack thereof. The idea is laughable.24/08/2016 #1 Aaron SkogenGood grief, I am just amazed at some of the stuff that still occurs in the workplace Grace. This is very relevant, and a practice that simply needs to stop. I loved how you wrapped this up, as it speaks volumes. . . "In today’s talent wars, if you focus on the size of woman’s diamond and not the size of her talent, intellect, ability or potential - you deserve to lose." Right on! I hire for talent, I could care less about sex, race, religion, orientation, etc. It's all about the value a candidate brings to the table. Thanks for the post and bringing awareness to the issue.
Hmmm, I do sometimes wonder what message my wedding "ring" sends, considering its a tattoo! Be well Grace, great post!
