How is writing about millennials still a thing?

In fact, how was it EVER a thing?

If I had a dollar for every time I've read or heard something along the lines of the following, I'd be able to afford lots of lunch items not listed on the Del Taco "buck and under" menu. 

"For the first time in U.S.…

Bias Leadership: When Reverse Discrimination is the Problem

What happens in an organization where minorities are in leadership and the majority is subject to discrimination? Before we set out on this road to explore “reverse discrimination” let us be clear on a few things:

1)     Reverse discrimination is not equal to racism. Racism is more than a…

DIVERSITY KEY IN FILLING TECH ROLES

Gender Gap

There is a high demand for individuals in STEM fields. Even conservative estimates assume that for decades to come there will be many more tech jobs available than there will be qualified applicants to fill them.

Many big tech companies are thinking ahead and doing anything they can to boost the number of people necessary to perform work in a technical role.…

Video Interviewing and Your Recruiting Strategy

Let's be honest, if we took a look at the technology you're using to interview even 5 years ago, I bet it would look almost the same as it does today. Maybe a new platform or two but essentially the same sh*t, different year, despite the blogging community and a ton of startups who have spent…

Diversity Programs aka The Big Illusion and Implicit Bias

Everywhere you turn lately, you seem to come across another article on diversity (including this one which might just piss you off). It's interesting to see companies highlight their programs to the media in an effort to save face. Unfortunately, the inefficiencies of their diversity programs and the…

How Large Is the Ethnic Diversity Gap in STEM?

I recently shared data on gender diversity in STEM (science, tech, engineering, and mathematics) jobs. This time, I'm examining ethnic diversity for these fields. How ethnically diverse is US's STEM candidate supply? Below are the percentages of qualified people in the US workforce for each STEM field, broken down by ethnicity.

Have You Ever Noticed: Startup Age Discrimination

Have you ever noticed how few people over 30 or so get hired at early-stage startups, and while age discrimination is sometimes discussed, how rarely (if ever) you hear of startups being cited or working to age-diversify their early-stage hires?

Where My Girls At?

p1981-149

The philosophy of pursuitology is to change recruiting from the inside out. It is not enough to want diverse employees, you have to change your perspective on how you look at diversity and inclusion. In my “Must be Able to Drive a Zoo Vehicle” presentation at SourceCon, the audience and I…

Dude Dressed Like A Lady, Now What?!

I was reading a trade industry article online and came across a question from another recruiter, I thought the question would spark a robust yet healthy dialogue. I would love to get your thoughts, read on….



Dear Staffing: Dude Dressed Like A Lady, Now What?!

Diversity Recruitment Problems Over Analyzed

Recently when I presented the “Secrets of a Successful Job Search” at the University of Utah, I asked the participants “How many of you feel you have been discriminated because of your age?” About a third of the people raised their hands.

When you read about diversity recruitment most people discuss systems and solutions but I have yet to see anyone discuss the root problem. Possibly the reason that you do not see the root cause is that most people who write on the subject are outside…

Failure to plan



Its a typical Monday morning.  The staff comes in to work in the usual fashion.  The beginning of the workweek yet again, however, something is different.  Over the past couple of years, sales have been "OK" but you have seen better years in the past.  You have shrugged it off and blamed it on the bad economy.  Yes, it must be the economy.  The worst financial times since the great depression.... Right??

You check your year over year…

A Lesson for Recruiters, Corporate Gatekeepers/HR and Hiring Managers from Steve Jobs



A Toast “to the crazy ones,” by Steve Jobs

 

Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes... the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules... You can quote them, disagree with…

5 Tips on Recruiting or Working with Asian-Americans

1. Ask us how long we have lived in the area. Do not ask us where we are REALLY from. Do not ask us what our nationality is when you mean ethnicity.  Aside from EEO issues in the US, these questions show  that you have already put us in a box as "other" and we are tired of hearing it.  Also, for Asian orphans, this can be a painful question. Some do not know. One woman I met was abandoned in Saigon as a toddler speaking Chinese in 1968. …

Great Minds Think...Differently!

“Great minds think alike.” We’ve all heard this phrase before.  It typically warrants saying when someone has an idea that you were already thinking about.  “Great minds think alike, huh Kirk?”  Think about that for a moment.  If all great minds thought alike, where would we be?  If… Continue

Social Media and Recruiting a Diverse Workforce - Can you have both???

One of the obligations of socially-conscious professionals is to “give back” to the community –

mentorships, presentations, cash, etc. Not that it is a heavy burden and I do what I can. Recently, I agreed to sit in on a focus group of HR professionals to strategize ways of attracting a diverse workforce to the

city, and our respective organizations. Our economic development group is very helpful to local companies with the problems they face and this is one of the ways they bring… Continue

I am Black and I am Proud

Sometimes I happen upon a bit of information that is so stunning, so out-of-this-world crazy, that I simply dismiss it as media hyperbole. This is likely what happened when someone mentioned Sammy Sosa's recent skin transformation, apparently an elective process, achieved by a "skin softening" cream.



For those of you as well-versed in baseball as I am, you likely remember… Continue
