9. I remember that. I already knew it because I have a hispanic name.

 

With an Arabic middle name on top of that. I turn in Resumes in person for that very reason. I had only been getting call backs for bilingual jobs, insurance jobs, etc. my spanish is not good enough for that kind of position. My reading is flawless but I can barely hold a good conversation in Spanish. Nobody out her to talk to in Spanish that I know that well.
It is so frustrating!!!
If I hand it in in person, I can usually get a call back. It's seems hard for hispanics too. I have literally been treated like I do not know english on the phone, and end up just hanging up. People talk to you so LOUD, if they think you are hispanic. Like yr hard of hearing.
