Default I\'ll believe they are serious once I see the outcomes

I like the fact that they have shown some commitment for improvement and growth
by putting out an ad such as this.
But I'll believe that they have become professional only when the results of this
ad are seen.
What do I mean by result? If I see that the new posts have been filled by people
with political connections then I'll be dissapointed but not surprised. BCB will
be no better off than they are now. However, if politics *appears* to be out of the
picture, then I might accept that BCB has made some improvements.

This reminds me of the so called MD of BCB position. They advertised for a managing director post, who will run it all, with so and so qualification.

Then after the application deadline expired, they got a meeting to make the selection. Then? the rest is classic. They in the meeting changed the post from managing director to general manager, hired Ali Ahsan Babu, who didnt even submit his application before the deadline.

Some professionalism!!!

i was intrigued until i got to the age requirement: 35-40. what if a good candidate is younger or older? how sad that these old stereotypes don't ever seem to change. I know they aren't really serious about the age or anything else inthe description, but isn't it time there are some upgrades of labor laws so people's age, marital status, religion etc cannot be used to so blatantly discriminate?

as for getting the job, yeah, good luck. but surely someone on this board will apply for a position??

One assumption is that somebody who has had a career in the sport will be the ideal candidate, and thus professional.

And given the longetivity, cricketers in BD play through the age of 35.

Hence, the req. is 34 + . And since most folks either have premature heart attacks, blood sugar issues etc. , the req. is also 41-

Just kidding.

Anyway, if Alok K. and Taposh B. are our best players, then who says there is areligious discrimination ? Also, the player' age spread is from 16 - 34. Also, many players are married.

the operations manager may need to be an ex-cricketer, but not the other 2. there are plenty of good ex-criketers who are perfect for the job and are over 41.

based on that, i don't see the connection between cricket players average age, marital status or religion with these jobs. the bcb is looking for professionals, they may or may not hire ex-cricket players. in fact, professionl cricket players (not amateurs, which could have been the case a few years ago) probably haven't had time to build a 10 year resume in marketing or communications.

an age requirement in bangladeshi jobs is quite common, so my comments about age bias are general. marital status and religion is just additional ways to discriminate, but i didn't literally mean bcb is discriminating on anything other than age here.

i really think they could find some young dynamic people who are capable and less than 35, and therefore that age restriction doesn't make sense to me.
