Islam In America

According to an article by Cathy Lynn Grossman of Religion News Service, “Recent college grads, take note: Mentioning a campus religion group on your resume — particularly a Muslim club — may lead to significantly fewer job opportunities.”

RNS reports, “Muslims faced the sharpest discrimination [in the South] with 38 percent fewer emails and 54 percent fewer phone calls to the voice mailboxes set up by the researchers.”

What has been the job hunting experience for you and/or your children? Do you identify as “Muslim” on your résumé if it’s not relevant to the job opening?
