If only more people, would think to do tests like this.

On my resume I use Pat instead of Patricia because I believe that it would be passed over in favor of resumes with male names.  I've never tested the theory for sure by using the name Patricia but I think I will start now that I don't need a job. Maybe in my field, I would fare better now.

This makes me so angry. And I bet this man is more qualified than who they hired instead.
