I am an international student and a rising junior at a semi-target/low target school.
When crafting my resume, is it advisable for me to create an English name (the likes of John/Dan) to fend off xenophobia? Or should I just go by my real name, which all of my friends and previous employers call me?
In other words, is it okay to go by Dan Lee or Min Lee (short version of real name) instead of stating my full legal name on resume? (Min Lee versus Min Soo Lee, for instance - this is a common Korean name and is totally made up. Not my real name)
