A software development position where one might have to work with Muslims and other religious types. Not that I have a problem with this, I keep religion out of the office as a rule, except when somebody else starts something.
Either way, not a biggie, I got a much better job a couple weeks later... almost like I was meant to... heh.
Long story but the shortened version is: went for an interview, got called back for a second interview, did 3.5 hours of more interviews, including the GM, things were going swimmingly, then my personal blog came up. Not wanting to hide anything I gave them the address where I had, unfortunately, recently written a... scathing post on Islam.
They were not impressed, I didn't get the job, they refused to tell me why. Of course I don't know for a fact and I can only guess but it certainly feels like my opinion on religion helped the decision along.
Sadly, this is why I carefully separate my views on religion from my professional profile and will continue to do so, for a while at least.
NZ is pretty laid back to a degree. I didn't get a job I applied for last year because of my... outspoken heathen views. On a whole though, not so bad.
There's a couple of groups up here in Auckland, you might want to have a look at (and join): http://www.nzarh.org.nz/ to see if there are some dudes down there who want to meet up.
