What's In A Name? José Zamora Becomes Joe To Find Job And Uncovers Hiring Discrimination

For José Zamora, job hunting was a full-time job that resulted in disappointment. In a Buzzfeed video (which you can watch below), Zamora narrates how he applied anywhere from 50 to 100 jobs a day only to receive no response. Ultimately, Zamora dropped a single letter in his name, transforming it to "Joe." The result? His inbox was full of follow ups from potential employers. Come on, America! The job application process needs to be colorblind and the hiring process should focus on one thing: qualifications.
