I’ve noticed when applying for jobs online they ask about your gender, race, disability and veteran status. Is being one or more make you a more desirable candidate for a quota?

There is no quota. It's for reporting purposes and entirely optional. Don't overthink it. And, spend most of your time reaching out to existing connections and making new ones IRL to land a good job. Online should be lower on your list / not your primary hope. Good luck!

Lots of companies are tracking this for diversity and inclusion/reporting purposes. Personally, I think it’s a good move.

Yup, if the company you are applying to is a government contractor than they are required to capture this information.

It is really important you complete each form, even if opting out, so your application doesn’t appear as “incomplete” which may cause a recruiter to never see it.

Here's a quick tip
💡 Use Google’s XYZ formula: "Accomplished [X] as measured by [Y], by doing [Z]."

💡 Example: Instead of saying "worked with team members on project", say "Collaborated with 5+ analysts on go-to-market strategy by researching 20+ cities across the United States, resulting in an ARR of $1M."

💡 Last but not least, keep it concise. One or two pages max
