A tech company caused ire after it posted a job advert which encouraged ‘preferably caucasian’ people to apply.
Cynet Systems later apologized and said it had fired the people involved in the racist job listing.
An alert twitter user Helen McCabe picked the tweet and questioned how any company found it right to post such a racist advert.
Uh, hey @cynetjobs – what's with this?
Your job listing for a mid-senior level business development position's top qualification is "Preferably Caucasian"
How could you POSSIBLY think that's okay? pic.twitter.com/DPWzpgXqqE
