Default Hiring men only or women only?

Every now and again I think of something ( I know amazing that I think of something) that I want to ask others. I know there are flight departments that hire only women out there and some only hire men as flight attendants. Im sure they cannot publicly say "we are currently hiring for female FA's or visa versa" or can they? For example oil companies I know often times hire only male FAs because of the areas they fly into, those places do not always have suitable facilities for women and the whole cultural thing. So my question I guess is can they advertise for only a male or only a female FA? Or if a company wants only one sex or the other how do they find only those applicants? Just something I was thinking of.

Default Gender Selection

Hi Drew,

Laws vary amongst countries, but I do know that in many areas of the world you can explicitly say that you want "female cabin crew" and you can specify age range and marital status. Although this seems out of step with what many westerners are used to, local laws prevail.

As far as in the US, if someone wants a woman vs. a man or the other way around, they cannot explicitly publish that fact. Naturally, when it comes to screening applicants or making the final hiring decision, you'll never know why you were chosen or not. If someone wants certain hiring criteria to be met, they'll find a way to do it.
