Oh, the West

From Seth Godin's blog,

A recent study (sorry, I'm linkless here) by the government found that distinctly ethnic first names got fewer callbacks on otherwise identical resumes. Fair? Of course not. Not surprising, though, either.

Hmm, a name like Jim Baker or Ashley Michael here in India would work the other way round. Anyway, that doesn't stop Indian names from popping up in every nook & corner of the IT world.
