In my job search, I very rarely get any type of response from employers after applying. I realize this is very common and not something I'm overly concerned about, but in some cases, I've been ghosted even when fully qualified and referred by someone. I don't tend to take it personally because I have never even met the hiring managers, but a thought occurred to me today. It's probably completely unfounded, but is it possible hiring managers could subconsciously see my name (Karen) and think I'm a "Karen?" It sounds ridiculous, yes, but I wondered if anyone puts that association there when they meet someone named Karen, even without realizing it. Thoughts?
