Is it weird for a recruiter to only contact you after 6p and give you their personal number to contact them about opportunities that they still won't share many details about?

Sounds like that recruiter is either tryna slide into your DMs or recruit you for Fight Club

Yes. It’s weird. And I would even tell this “recruiter” how abnormal it is.

If it’s a 3rd party, no. I routinely catch up with one I have an established relationship during non-traditional hours. Our first call was the same and she’s placed me. The plus for you, no finding a quiet place at work to take the call.

I think you’ve answered your own question.

So. My cat just pooped in the very expensive yarn I'm currently using. How do I recover from this? I have half a hat and half a ball of now quite smelly yarn. I shook out all the crap but what do I do now? Ignore it and hope it airs out? Hand wash the yarn and let it air dry? Spray with febreeze and never look the person I'm giving this to in the eye again? Burn it and give up knitting until i no longer have a cat?

Inequality is not gonna be fixed by agencies overnight. Agencies still need qualification, and unfortunately that is still unequal as well.

We need to hire POC right now. Promote them. Give them important roles.

That’s just one step.

The biggest step is fighting for equal qualification. While we keep the bias out, we need to make sure we are helping young POC to have access to tools and training.

That will give agencies a much larger database to hire diversity and fix the problem.
