Oh! Never mind. I've bodged my way around it!
Still no job luck. I actually withdrew from one job even after getting to second round as a few questions asked of me set off a few red flags.
Another job is delaying third round interviews due to shenanigans with getting the company set up in Ireland.
But in a twist of irony, after getting no financial support for art school I'm now using my Job Seeker status to study business modules at the University of Limerick. Art will have to stay a hobby.
Update update: French friend said it I'd because certain roles are gendered within their language. I agree that it is also the same in English (actor, actress).
However Community Manager isn't gendered.
I have a new found respect for my Dad who worked in Employment Law for decades.
Update: apparently in France they do specify gender on their job postings! Is France regressing?!?! The EU has these legislations for a reason wth.
