    in my earlier post:

    This of course doesn't mean that the job will go to that person, but they get higher priority out of the gate above everyone else at that point.

    In no way do I support nepotism or favoritism in hiring.  I was only referring to the selection process and how someone can get their foot in the door much easier that just being a "number" or a face in the crowd.

    You may disagree on a philosophical level, but the "old boys network" and the buddy system of hiring and promotion has been around for decades and beyond.

      If people did their fucking job correctly and fairly evaluated candidates who apply, instead of relying on others to funnel them their "friends," then maybe that "old boys network" wouldn't be so powerful an influence.

      Maybe more women and immigrants could get better jobs and not have to suffer because they are "nothing but a face in the crowd."

      What disgusting bullshit.
