Using Market Leader for my business English class

I have some private students interested in learning Business English. I am using the book Market Leader New Edition of Pearson Longman.

In Unit 8 students learn about employment issues and vocabulary related to this topic. The unit begins with a quotation I cannot agree more: "No matter how successful you are, your business and its future are in the hands of the people you hire" by Akio Morita - founder of Sony and inventor of the walkman.

In the teacher's notes there is some information I found interesting.

For example, appearance, experience, qualifications are taken into consideration when you apply for a job, but in Japan, blood group is very important as well. Why? Click here
and in France, handwriting is taken very seriously! Click here for further reading.
