Should diversity really out-weight experience and education in the hiring process? Thoughts?

The industry needs greater diversity, including diversity of education. Way too many children (many minorities) of privilege in this industry

It shouldn't. But if you understand American history and the treatment of minorities throughout that history, I get it.

Shouldn't outweigh but shouldn't be unerweighted either. World starting to look a lot different than it used to -- some places may want to keep up with the times

Absolutely not, no. Merit should be the main deciding factor.

@GS1 I'm just speaking in general. The U.S. has an ugly history when it comes to race. Improving race relations don't remove the systemic issues that were created by that ugly history. Hence, why I get why these policies exist. Most policies (including affirmative action) are broad brush strokes, which ultimately leads to unintended consequences.

NO fucking way

Well said GS3

why would a firm interview you if they don't have a role readily available for you? Seems like a complete waste of resources and results in frustration for everyone involved. 😑😡

I have 2 opportunities:

-Leave small counting boutique firm and join Cox Communications as an FTE (where I’m currently consulting as a Senior BA)
-Rejoin
Accenture as a Manager in their Strategy practice (up or out)

I feel like the FTE role would be more secure / easier role but would be making -$30K less and wouldn’t be as challenged.

Thoughts and opinions would be appreciated.

Thank you!

I don’t think I could make this up. Interviewed with a recruiter, hiring manager, in house counsel, legal staff. I was told I was in final and was asked to supply half a dozen references who all submitted written recs. No decision so I was asked to interview with in house clients. Company still can’t make a decision so I am being asked to submit my final overall desired comp package. Mind you - this is not an AGC, DGC, or GC role, and not even F500 company. Thoughts? Is this normal now?
