Most of us are well aware of the explicit prejudice that exists in the world and of the discrimination that can occur as the result of such prejudice. We see these prejudices in the tribalism that is so pervasive throughout our society, and in the beliefs, one group of people will hold about another group of people. Much work has been done to illuminate the more wide-spread prejudices in our society, and an equally large effort has been made to explain how these prejudices manifest into discriminatory behaviors. While we are all aware of the overtly discriminatory history of our country, we might not be as cognizant of the many covertly discriminatory behaviors that still exist. In an experiment carried out by researchers at Princeton University, these covert prejudices and discriminatory behaviors were tested, and the results have profound implications.

A job interview is an interview consisting of a conversation between a job applicant and a representative of an employer which is conducted to assess whether the applicant should be hired. A job interview typically precedes the hiring decision. Next, after this screening, a small number of candidates for interviews is selected. Potential job interview opportunities also include networking events and career fairs. The job interview is considered one of the most useful tools for evaluating potential employees.
