I saw an ad where the resumes were to be hand delivered by the applicant (not faxed or emailed).

A lot of office receptionist jobs want you to personally hand in the application. I think a lot of that is so they can have bad bitch for the job instead of an average or ugly woman or even man...but then again I wonder if an applicant looked like a black barbie/model/pageant girl type if she'd even get the job

Well it would work in their favor since most people don't think that black women, in particular, are, attractive.

Actually had an employee in my company say that.
