This article discusses how many employers are using social media to find out information about candidates that legally they aren’t allowed to ask in interviews. It highlights specifically how the research didn’t show a disparity in interview opportunities for potential candidates that discloses their sexual orientation. However the potential candidates that identified themselves as Muslim were contacted less frequently for interviews. It sparks the conversation in my eyes of whether someone that chooses not to disclose their religion on social media should be viewed as less observant, if they are doing so based on legitimate concerns of being discriminated against?
1. Is the religion that you practice information you publish on your social media page(s)?
2. Would you want to work for an employer if you knew that you would not have been hired if the employer knew your religion?
