Today in "Sexist man has sexist answer to sexism in the workplace," recruiter Bruce Hurwitz has all the answers. According to Hurwitz's now-viral LinkedIn post, "When interviewing for a job, lose the ring!", ladies should take off their jewelry because it just makes them seem too damn high maintenance.

Even though I had not been introduced to her, and despite the fact that, at that moment, I was alone with five women all of whom were wearing engagement rings, I said, "Lose the rock!" Everyone looked at me. The woman had the Hope Diamond on her finger. She, and my colleagues, asked for an explanation. When a man sees that ring he immediately assumes you are high maintenance. When the woman at the office who has the largest diamond on her finger, sees that ring, she will realize that if you are hired she will fall to second place and will, therefore, not like you. Lose the ring!
