Today while perusing the Internet, I came across an article titled, “I Wore A Fake Engagement Ring To A Job Interview…Seriously.” Obviously it peaked my interest..I had to know why!
Upon further inspection, that in the midst of searching for a job she was often asked (ILLEGALLY) about her martial status during interviews. This is not okay..just so you know. You can’t ask this kinda thing in a professional environment. But..why did these potential employers want to know?
According to ScienceDaily, people are more likely to hire someone that they could envision developing a friendship with!
“Employers are often more focused on hiring someone they would like to hang out with than they are on finding the person who can best do the job” suggests a study in the December issue of the American Sociological Review. More here.
The initial article suggests that people tend to be most friendly with others of the same race, gender, and MARITAL STATUS!
Conclusion: Married bosses will be more likely to hire you if you are also married.
My question to you is: HAVE YOU EVER WORN A FAKE ENGAGEMENT?
