This Sexist Job Advertisement Has Really Annoyed People
A couple of weeks ago, #EqualPayDay was trending to mark the point in the year that women stop earning the same as their male counterparts.
While we have a long way to go before equality in the workforce is realised, it's sad to see that sexism is also very much apparent.
Canadian web company, Vestra Inet reportedly posted a job description to LinkedIn and it received a very negative reaction on Twitter because of its sexist nature.

The advert for "an online writer and SEO specialist" stated that because the position includes receptionist duties, "female candidates are preferred".
The post now appears to have been removed but not before people took to Twitter to make their feelings known.
Vestra Inet has not yet commented on the matter.
