Any minority recruiters/HR who can truthfully confirm if checking off an ethnicity when submitting a job application matters or is it better off to mark "Prefer not to say" for a better chance of getting follow-ups?

I am a woman of color in HR. A lot of firms and companies are intentionally trying to diversify right now so I always disclose. Also seeing a trend towards more selecting “two or more races”.

I think sometimes the candidates name will give it away that they are a minority so everyone might as well disclose to claim it without the need for assumptions. If they’re not going to hire based on any protected class, you will probably not get to interview nor want to work there. You will see the end result and diversity makeup, especially in leadership teams as time goes on. It just proves where they are in efforts and reality. After some time if there is no change, there will be no change. I am expecting changes in coming years, if not significant at least a decent amount and it’s not just more white women but this time race/ethnicity too.

Pro tip: finding it hard to disconnect while working from home? At the end of the day, actually power down your laptop and pack it away in your bag with your power cords,mouse, etc. same you would if you were leaving the office or traveling. Need to take it a step further? Also disable your email/Skype notifications on your phone so your not tempted to check them immediately. Happy Memorial Day weekend FB!

Just so much happiness and I need space to gush. My boyfriend is the most amazing man I’ve ever met. He makes me feel safe and loved and is absolutely crazy about me. We see each other a couple of times a week and it’s always super fun and peaceful and the sex and emotional connection is perfect. I’m so lucky to have met him in nyc and he tells me he feels lucky too. We’re discussing our future and having 3 kids together and I can’t wait to call him my husband and father of our gorgeous children

I am a background check away from putting in my notice. KEEP grinding if you’re miserable and/or have trouble getting out of bed in the morning. This took a lot of ghosting and interviews+offer letters being taken off the table due to COVID. Stay humble and you’ll be next. Take a midday walk and schedule some coffee meetings to expand your network and stay sane.

In house interviews: I finished a final round of interviews and was expecting a final decision after the interviews. Rather than yes or no, the recruiter told me that the feedback is positive but they need to interview one more candidate to compare since I am the first one interviewed. And they wanted to add one more meeting with their new team member starting next week. Is this common and what’s the best way to deal with this unexpected message? Thanks!

This fight has gotten real! I’ve been offered a job, advertised as remote, but they want to have a blended program with teachers on campus. Small school, 10-15 to a class... maybe, masks ( I’ll have to ask if they’re mandatory), distancing and a continuous cleaning staff. Sounds great but I’m 62 with 5 underlying conditions! Have to negotiate a contract Monday... I’m hoping I’ll be able to work on-line as NV is one of the growing hotspots in this Pandemic!
