    My friend is Mexican-American. He has a Spanish name but he looks like a nerdy white guy. Years ago, he was having trouble finding a job. He's a super smart, super awesome product manager so he didn't suspect it was his skills. So he A/B tested his resume; one with a photo and one without.

    The resume with the photo got him a lot more call backs and interviews.

      Thank you.

      This seems to be the actual case with most people I know that are actually applying right now.

      Reminds me of a story in the news a couple days ago where a hispanic guy changed his name from Jose to Joe on his resume and got more leads because of it.
