A recent online post entitled "interview tips for different zodiac signs and blood types" has gained much attention on the internet and become an interview "Bible" for many young jobseekers.
 
China News Service reports that the post, written by a netizen named "zodiac fairy" divides the 12 signs of the zodiac into earth signs (Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo), water signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces), fire signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) and air signs (Libra, Aquarius and Gemini), and combines the four categories with the four blood types - A, B, AB and O - to create 16 combinations.
 
The post not only lists the characteristics of people with each combination, but also offers suggestions about how they can overcome their disadvantages during job interviews.
 
Among various job-hunting advice with growing employment pressure in China, such astrology-related suggestions have been gaining popularity particularly among young people.
 
A netizen surnamed Zhu who is looking for a job said the post was enlightening. "I am in the earth signs category with type AB blood, and I don't talk much the first time I meet someone," Zhu said, "The post suggests I should avoid being stiff and remember to show my advantages such as composure in interviews, which will be useful to me."
 
On the other hand, Lin Zhi, an employment expert at Zhejiang University, believes success in finding a job depends mainly on the efforts of jobseekers, the China News Service article said. Only referring to zodiac signs and blood types may cause people to ignore some necessary preparations when looking for jobs, Lin said.
 
Zhang Zaifu, a psychologist in east China's Zhejiang Province, also said it was not rational to rely on astrology to get a job. But Zhang said the post still contained positive elements because it advocated preparing for interviews according to one's characteristics and personality traits.
