I'm wondering a bit about the ubiquitous EEO demographics card* (or webform these days) that comes at the end of the job application process. A pair of polls, one for current/recent job seekers, one for those on the hiring side of things. Feel free to elaborate in the comments.
For the job seekers..
For the employers..
*(For the uninitiated Equal Employment Opportunity forms usually include a series of demographic questions such as gender and race/ethnicity. Some universities include a bit more. At least one place I applied to asked about sexual orientation. The information filled out by the candidate is supposed to be kept seperate from the actual application, and is used to evaluate the nature of the candidate pool, not individual applicants)
