Need to vent. I have been interviewing candidates for a role on my team and finally found a candidate I want to hire. It’s been 7 months of interviewing and I was very excited to have him on board. This candidate just so happens to be Asian.

Now I have to restart the whole process for D&I😞

I’m at 760 nights & 9 years as platinum at Marriott…but I was at 750 nights & 9 years last year (pretty sure? Maybe going crazy). Do you have to hit 10 years as plat within a 10yr time span? Or 10 years as plat at any point in your life?
