I just interviewed for a CFO position at a startup with a non-technical CTO. It seems he delegates most tech decisions to the tech lead and doesn’t fully understand the product himself. How big of a red flag is this?
Interviewing Loblaw Digital for data analytics roles. Did anyone interview for similar roles before? What case study/ requirements for the last round of interview?
I’m the only black corporate associate at my firm (AM Law 200). It’s recently come to my attention that I’m getting paid the same as associates with far less experience, but still mentoring and leading on deals. Then they brought in more white associates making far more than I do, still less experience. Comp is a black box here, but I’ve managed to figure it out. Interviewing at other firms at this point. I don’t feel like asking these people to treat me fairly. Anyone else ever experience this?

I have an offer to a commercial real estate company in hand. My current brokerage (residential focus) wants me to pay $3000 penalty since I’m breaking the contract and leaving. I’m financially struggling and 3k is a big number to pay now. The new job will be paying me $2000/month up until the first year only. Is it wise to pay or stick around in residential sales just to avoid that penalty?

Is anyone else seeing a significant uptick in recruiter calls/emails in light of the recent Coca Cola gauntlet to big firms? I'm literally receiving interest dozens a day right now. Of course, they never explicitly say the firms need more diverse faces.
What kind of car do you drive and how much did it cost? Obviously this depends on a lot of other factors like other expenses (mortgage, student loans, kids, etc.). I've been driving the same car since high school, a 2012 Hyundai Elantra. There isn't anything wrong with it, but I kind of want a car with the newer safety features like blind spot cameras and lane assist. I'm just curious how much other people are spending.

People are saying Kamala Harris isn’t Black
I’m sorry you’re having this experience. But also, I don’t think you should assume it’s because you’re black. You may have lost some of those roles to other black people.
I say this because I just won a role at a company with a very rigorous interview process. When they offered me the role, all 3 people made sure to tell me the competition was stiff and the other candidates were brilliant. Since getting that role, I have come across two people who also interviewed for the role… both black. Imagine them walking away thinking it was their blackness that stopped them from getting that role when actually that wasn’t the case and the firm genuinely does think they’re amazing.
My point is that the world will hand you enough heartbreaking racist experiences. My personal advice, which you certainly don’t have to take, is not to make these stories for yourself when there’s not good evidence that it’s the case. If there’s something affirming that you can hold onto “they thought you were a great candidate”, try your best to hold on to that rather than internalizing negative narratives when you don’t have to. You’re literally in a place where you get to choose to tell yourself a better story! It makes a difference (for me) and maybe it will help you hold out more hope and feel confident going into other interviews.
Wishing you the best of luck on your interview journey.
I definitely think some of us are getting conversations instead of interviews so the folks on the other side of the table/call can say “our pool was diverse.”
There is undoubtedly conscious and unconscious bias in hiring and it's so hard to determine the true deciding factor sometimes. I would hedge my bets by researching companies that have a great culture, already have a diverse team so you know they are walking the walk.
I'm new to the bowl, so I'm just getting to know the environment here. However, this post gave me a thought. One of the issues about being black in tech is that you're not always certain whether certain behavior is racially motivated, but something seems off. You examine your non-black peers' experiences and it seems dramatically different. If there's any place where someone should be able to say, "I feel like I'm being discriminated against" without someone making them feel it's all in their head, it should be in a black space. It doesn't mean they want to be a victim or they're going to go off and be depressed. Maybe they just want to express it. Food for thought. Not trying to bash any particular comment. Maybe the poster wanted constructive feedback, not sure. This just came to my mind. I love all my people ✊🖤.
Start your own company …. It brings experience, leadership, networking and ownership ☘️
I interviewed at 26 companies (including some FAANG) for a total of 62 interviews over 1.5 years before I finally received an offer. Know that it is definitely not just you. You can’t tell me that there’s not clear bias in tech re: “culture fit.”
They told you that the person they chose was not a person of color or are you assuming this? When we want equality it’s problematic to post assumptions that are divisive.
Sorry about that, it's terrible. Don't be discouraged though, there are plenty of other opportunties!
