According to a recent research done by University of Konstanz (Universität Konstanz), job applicants who have Turkish sounding names have less chance compared to applicants with German names and same qualifications.

I had heard similar cases in Belgium, too, e.g. an applicant with a Turkish sounding name applied for a position via Internet and did not receive any positive response and then sent the same CV with a Flemish sounding name (rest of the CV being same) and received a response quickly. Of course this is just a single data point and statistically not meaningful in the context of Belgium and I personally / professionally did not encounter any kind of discrimination during my first year at Belgium. On the other hand if we had these kind of data for all EU countries we could create a very valuable data visualization.
