1 in 4 hiring managers say they’re less likely to hire Jewish applicants

“In this era of fighting for equality in hiring, Jewish individuals have largely been left out of the conversation,” ResumeBuilder said. “Kanye West (who now goes by Ye) and his latest headline-making commentary may be the most public example of the insidious nature of antisemitism — which could be more widespread in recruiting than assumed, data released Nov. 22 by ResumeBuilder shows. One in 4 hiring managers said in a survey that they are less likely to move forward with Jewish applicants, due in part to a belief that Jews have too much “power and control” — the same antisemitic views recently espoused by West. Additionally, 1 in 6 hiring managers said leadership told them not to hire Jewish applicants, while one-third said antisemitism is common in their workplace. Just under one-third (29%) said antisemitism is “acceptable” at their company.”
