Do you guys think it's a bit racist for Joe Biden to advocate for a Black woman as Supreme Court Justice when black women on ly make up 6% of the population? I feel like this is kind of messed up, and reflects a broken system in tech hiring as well. You should hire based on merit not to make a statement.

Currently acting a back-up to our lead recruiter, who is currently on furlough. We have an opening in our marketing department and I'm coordinating the interviews for the position. A former employee applied for the position and the department insisted that we interview her, even though she is missing required skills. We had 2 people in the marketing department interview her... they said she would be welcomed back, but she would likely struggled in the position initially and without having a supervisor who can teach her, it will be difficult (position will report to directly to department head, who is out of touch with the day-to-day of this position). Despite this, department head still wants to advance her to final interviews and will likely hire her even with additional candidates in the pipeline. Thoughts on addressing this?

Had an interview today and was asked what my current salary is and what is the range i am looking for. I managed to avoid answering by asking in return what is their budget. The recruiter stated 65k-85k and my idiot self stated that I would like my salary to be in the 70ish🤦‍♀️ I should have said towards the end range. If contacted for a second round, how should I talk regarding $? Feels like I am leaving money on the table. Will they ask again.. does anyone have experience with this situation?

Hi ladies, would love to know what your advice is on this situation. I’m a newer manager and just got promoted. I’m a Asian Canadian in my 30 but still look like I’m 20. One of the hardest part I face in my job is trying to manage a team that is older than me and I feel like I’m not respected due to my age. Anyone has gone through this and know what I can do?
