While perusing jobs again, I was struck by one particular qualification. Pardon me if it seems a bit, well, unnecessarily exclusive in scope.
Minimum of two years of college coursework or equivalent experience required
One to three years of research experience required
Exceptional written and verbal communication skills
Ability to work independently and in a team environment
Efficient with regard to using computer programs such as Word, Excel, etc.
Ability to work well under pressure and meet deadlines
Ability to interact and communicate with a variety of people in a a professional manner
Ability to represent the organization in a professional manner
Thorough knowledge of animal rights issues
Adherence to a vegetarian lifestyle
Commitment to the objectives of the organization
So, let me get this straight. You can be a well-qualified candidate, but if you aren't a vegetarian, then you don't quite fit the profile? Does this sound a bit unfair to you? Is this even legal?
