Should I cite my ethnicity or religion in my resume?

Ethnicity and Religion in a Resume

You shouldn't cite your ethnicity in your resume unless you're sure that it would have a positive impact on getting a specific job. Of course, you may want to think hard about taking a job where your ethnicity is a major factor.

The discussion of ethnicity and religion poses potential legal issues for employers, and employers are typically more concerned about how you perform, not where you pray or the color of you skin.
