Simply put, job interviews are some of the most nerve-wracking things that happen to us over the course of a lifetime, and sometimes, it feels like we simply can’t do enough to prepare for it. We spend nights awake before the interview wondering what our potential bosses might ask us, wondering if we’re a good cultural fit, and wondering if the interviewers might judge us for our appearances. One could argue that the latter is especially troublesome for women, as they have to make sure they adhere to certain standards deemed “acceptable” by society. That’s why people are getting outraged over one man’s assessment that women shouldn’t wear their engagement rings to their interviews: Not only does it feel sexist, but it’s also an unfair thing to ask women to do when they’re already doing so much. Even worse are Bruce’s reasons for hiding the engagement ring, and if you’re a woman or man who gets it, his blog post just might make you cringe. See what Hurwitz wrote below.
