Do you have advanced training jn d&i? Even a certificate would help? Have you poured your heart and soul into the D&I space? Do you have people from underrepresented organizations who will vouch for you? That is what I look for when I fill D&I roles. Hope this helps. Good luck.

I really would encourage you to consider recruitment. I think having experiential knowledge of pain points will help you be more successful. Knowing about recruitment from your current seat to actually doing recruitment is a different animal. I believe that by enduring a recruiting seat and then developing programs and structures for recruitment will give you more insights. Nothing worse then being a seasoned recruiter being taught by someone who bypassed the role and has not done what they are developing…..

If you aren’t involved in any DEI work, I would suggest asking to be part of some internal project work, as well as becoming super active in an ERG. There are also some trainings or certificate programs to look into, as pivoting into DEI is not the easiest to do and one has to sell their current DEI experience. Also, it is time to look elsewhere, as it may be easier to land a DEI Coordinator role or something similar, with another company.

I was so excited about it! I put alerts for that specific department on our job board and there’s only 3 applicants so I’m super bummed I didn’t pass the 2nd round. The recruiter hasn’t notified me but I looked 😣 But seems like something you’ll have to get into internally. I told my manager and coworkers so the department already knew that I was interested.

Put alerts for Diversity and Inclusion Recruiting! A friend of mine just got a role like this. Leverage your TA experience with DE&I. This is a new and expanding field. You’ll find something!!

DEI is not new.

HR Generalist or HE Admin is the best roles to move into if you want to be in D&I. That will give you the exposure you’ll need.

Ah ok. Thank you! I will look for those roles

What about a role in HR? Could you move into a coordinator position within HR at your current company? Or talent operations where you aren’t responsible for recruiting

Yes I am involved in projects and ERGs. As someone else said they went with someone else. It’d be nice to know what I was lacking. Hopefully the recruiter can provide that next week.

Update: I finally received feedback which I’m not too happy with. Briefly it was to take some classes/ certs; for the level I don’t agree that certs are needed especially since it wasn’t in the JD. Secondly, get involved in DEI projects outside of work which I already do! I’m a whole secretary of a non-profit but okay. Certifications I will get but I will not be applying for another role in that department. Their feedback wasn’t helpful it was 😐

It’s a non-profit dedicated to DEI so I’d say that’s exactly the experience I have. If they needed examples of specific projects they could have asked and I would have provided examples but the interview wasn’t even focused on that. Idk what other type of experience outside of work that they’re insinuating that I get. And why say certifications aren’t needed and then say they are? I am over the whole thing but I still stand by the fact that their feedback wasn’t helpful and now that I think about it their feedback vs what the asked in the interview is contradictory.
