BORN IN YEAR OF THE DOG? THERE'S A JOB FOR YOU IN CHINA
SHANGHAI, CHINA -- In a new twist on the phase "working like a dog" a company in China says it will hire only candidates born in the Asian zodiac's Year of the Dog.

The luna calendar astrology used in china andother Asian countries counts the coming year. which starts Jan 29 as a dog year.

The Asian zodia assigns a different animal to each year in a 12 year cycle, each of which is credited with different personality traits.

A personnel manager for Jilin Jiangshan Human Resources Development Co., Lts. said his company believes people born in the Year of the Dog are more suited to its corporate culture.

"We believe that people born in dog years are born with some good characteristics such as loyalty and honesty," said the manager, who identified himself only as Mr. Dong. "As a human resource company, those characters are exactly what we need".

The company's policy, placed on an Internet job site, has drawn accusations of bias, from some Shanghai college graduates.

Although Chinese law forbids discrimination in hiring, it does'nt say what constitutes an offense and job ads often come with a list of conditions including gender, age , height and even place of birth.

Dong said critics are barking up the wrong tree.

"I think we have the right to choose our employees by our own rule and I don't see this rule could hurt anybody", he said.
