Our panel concluded that discrimination does occur in various forms. Some are insidious and some are not. In fact, much of what candidates typically perceive as discrimination is actually an employer recognizing their right to be discriminating (picky as a result of preferences and an understanding of the personality type that fits best).
Also discussed were some new ways employers were checking candidate backgrounds and the methods job seekers can employ to avoid such things or use them to their advantage.
Or feel free to weigh in here. We’d love to hear from you.
