Have you ever felt discriminated against when applying for a job?


I do not just mean racial or gender discrimination. Sometimes people get discriminated against for not being attractive, having a lanky/weak body build, or looking too young. Furthermore, sometimes people lose jobs to others who are way more under-qualified. What is your take on discriminatory hiring practices?

    That is awful. I mean, such blatant discrimination. How did you deal with it?

    I'm sorry about that. Discrimination runs rampantly in hiring practices because people tend to search for others similar to them. If they can turn you down for trivial reasons, you probably are better off not working there.
