Are you actually a recruiter if you’re not a very attractive white female? But seriously only recruiters I ever see fit that stereotype, where’s the diversity?

I'm blonde and female and people message me on LinkedIn all the time thinking that I'm in HR. I'm have a CS degree and prefer quant heavy projects. 🙃

Attractive women are naturally better at attracting talent. They are able to connect well with other women, and men like being in their presence

Hey now - a room of blonde haired, blue eyed women can be incredibly diverse depending on their upbringing, interests and backgrounds.

As a man, I do enjoy that most of them are women lol. As a man who is not white, I wish that the large majority of them weren’t white women. It puts me at a disadvantage because they are going to naturally connect better with white men and women.

Yeah I honestly agree with the clear discriminatory hiring practices in with HR functions...having attractive people in that position is actually beneficial to the bottom line. Kind of like Tilted Kilt, but instead of whoring themselves out they have to be attractive enough to convince others to whore themselves out.

I dont know what my recruiter looks like. Don’t you guys only talk to them on the phone ?

Agree with E1. EY HR are hot. Met a Russian HR during interview process in EY - NY office. I didn’t accept the offer but we still@meet for coffee / drinks

Some other business roles have the same demographic, probably for the same reasons. Pharmaceutical sales reps, for instance.

@A1 I'm a white man, although I look racially ambiguous. I tend to get along better with non-white women ;)
