I have an educational background with a top American engineering school and an Ivy League University. Society does not expect to see someone that looks like me on the campuses much less in those classrooms. Nevertheless, I did that.
Several years ago, I had a White co-worker tell me that my voice on the phone and my knowledge base made him assume that I was much older and also White; so, he was shocked when he met me. He was also quite dumb because ... I mean, use LinkedIn! I told him never assume anything about someone's race based on the sound of their voice. I was already clued into the assumptions and bias that people have and offended that intelligence and articulation are deemed " White" traits.read more...
Intelligent. Self-Improving. Limitless
These three words come to mind when I think of what I value most from the tech industry, and most importantly, what I value most in myself as a woman.

When a job seeker is asked “Which recruiters are you working with right now?,” there’s typically a look of confusion that follows. To job seekers, recruiters are often seen as faceless gatekeepers that will either be responsible for getting them paid, or for putting them back into the unemployment line. And to employers, recruiters are often seen only as robots responsible for bringing them candidates, to sometimes mixed success. There’s very little in the way of communication between most recruiters and most job seekers, and often even less between the recruiter and the hiring company.
But there’s a better way to satisfy both sides. By leveraging what recruiters do best, connecting with people, all parties involved can reap the benefits. Here are three great reasons why staffing and recruiting agencies should be marketing their recruiters, not just their services.read more...

It used to be that resumes were the “one stop shop” of a candidate’s work history. Until a recruiter was able to interview the candidate, the resume was the only way to glean information about them. But that is no longer so. Where resumes used to be a single paper doc, they are now a path of digital footprintsread more...
