Me on an interview playing up my gayness for that diversity hire

Well played. This made me chuckle. But, it also made me a bit sad. This seemed to be coming from a person who, at first glance, wouldn’t qualify for diversity programs. So they need to amp it up to be considered.

That tells me OP already had privilege—whether gender, race, or both—on their side in an industry that leans heavily white and male.

Diversity hiring was initially made for those of us who don’t. Those of us who can’t change their skin color or gender just to make the interviewer across the table relate to them more.

I know it’s meant as a joke. (And, it was a good one.) But, as diverse peoples, we should try our best to be mindful of our comrades’ plights.

‘Cause, we all we got. *DJ Khaled voice*

Thought the same thing when i read this. Writing as a queer poc. It’s actually the opposite for me — i feel like i need to present as clean cut and hip-corporate to get hired while being interviewed by, and it’s always, white people

Hey all, I just received a great offer for an AE role at my 2nd choice agency. However, I'm still in the sample assignment phase with my dream agency and will be having a third round conversation on Tuesday (the 2nd choice agency did not have a sample assignment, only 2 interviews). I don't imagine it looks good to ask the dream agency to speed up the process, but what are my options? FWIW, I already asked Agency 2 for the timeline to have my response. Thanks in advance!

Want to get the advice of the group here:

Applying online to a company where there are legit 10 openings that I am qualified for and interested in. I have a referral at the company as well

1) do I apply to all 10 jobs, or does that look bad? I would optimize resume for each of the jobs

2) do I use my referral for all 10? Don’t want to flood his inbox or look like I am just mass applying, or diluting his opinion so to speak.

Thanks for the thoughts!

The practical effect of this is that I will not receive a raise until July 2021, 20 months after starting.
