"I'll never forget that experience," said Li Mingzhen, a senior college student at Fudan University in Shanghai, when recalling her interview with a well-known Chinese searchengine company. "I walked inside the interview room, and I found my college instructor was there, among other candidates,"
The man was three years older than her and held a graduate degree. "How could you possibly compete for a job with your own teacher, when he trumps you in gender,education background and working experiences?" wondered Li.

Once upon a time, a long time ago, a woman was watering her sheep. Her husband had reminded her to be sure and cover the well tightly when she was done as water was scarce. But when she was done watering the sheep, she forgot to close the well. Soon, the well filled and the water poured out. It flowed and flowed, and flooded the grassland at the bottom of the hill. The sheep bleated in fright.The woman tried to stop the flow of water by covering the well. But the water was moving too rapidly. It tossed the cover into the air, and poured even more forcefully out of the well.Just then, a warrior came riding by."Can you help me?" the woman cried. "I cannot stop the water!"The warrior shot an arrow into the tallest mountain, splitting it in two. One part fell onto the well and stopped the water from pouring out.The woman turned to the warrior, eager to thank him and to offer him food to eat when suddenly something occurred to her. She blurted, "But how will I get to the water again? It is under a mountain."The warrior only bowed and smiled and went on his way.When the woman realized that she had not offered food or greeting, she hung her head in shame.
