QUESTION
An essay titled “Women are cleverer than men”, and this is for a job interview. Should/can I be biased?
What are some ways that I can use to make sure I write a good essay. I mean should I be biased towards women in the essay, or should I acknowledge men at least a bit. There were no instructions whether to support or oppose the topic given, but I’m quite worried that they might find my approach to the essay to be wrong.

Please help to provide some ideas, I really want this job. Thanks.

ANSWER
The idea of this essay should be objective especially if its for employment reasons.

This means when writing you should not show any bias when talking about facts and analysis of both men and women in the work place.

What area is it your going to be working in?

To set out your essay you might start by asking “WHY women are cleverer than men in the workplace and then set out to either prove or disprove that argument. At the end you can place your own opinion as part of your conclusion.

Perhaps it would be interesting to think of 3-4 industries and find out where women work, how they got there, what they are paid in comparision to men.
