Abstract: Stating one's automobile and motorcycle licence in a resume sends a signal of strong mobility, which should increase the chances of employment in areas of high traffic congestion. However, we have found that this signal can lead to a counterproductive rejection of female candidates, since their highest commuting mobility corresponds to their lowest hiring rate.
