Eliminating the Unconscious Bias in Hiring

The Voice of Job Seekers - Unemployed, Underemployed, Unappreciated Job Seekers Welcomed!

I was fascinated by articles discussing the Blendoor app. It was developed and founded by Stephanie Lampkin was able to get venture capital funding for it. The Blendoor app is a blind recruiting tool  eliminating features used to screen candidates from “unconscious bias.” I consider this a game changer especially if it minimizes or eliminates discrimination.

Let me now what you think about the Blendoor app’s possibilities. Here’s how you can comment:

  1. Call and leave a voicemail at 708-365-9822, or text your comments to the same number
  2. Go to TheVoiceofJobSeekers.com, press the “Send Voicemail” button on the right side of your screen and leave a message
  3. Send email feedback to mark@thevoiceofjobseekers.com

Disabilities and Pay Equity

The Voice of Job Seekers - Unemployed, Underemployed, Unappreciated Job Seekers Welcomed!

The more disability rights, and gender and race pay disparities are discussed, the better it is for all. Job seekers who are affected can achieve fair chances and equity to manage the full  arc of his or her career. Tom Spiggle, founder of Spiggle Law, focuses in on discrimination. He is my guest for the show today.

Modern Networking Manners for Career Success

The Voice of Job Seekers - Unemployed, Underemployed, Unappreciated Job Seekers Welcomed!

We know networking is essential to success in business and career management. It should be a staple in your career strategy, but I know it’s not for everyone. I think the book, The Etiquette Edge; Modern Manners for Business Success by Dr. Beverly Langford is perfect for those who are struggling with networking as a thing rather than networking as a way of life.

How has networking helped you and your career? I would love to hear from you in one of three ways:

  1. Call and leave a voicemail at 708-365-9822, or text your comments to the same number
  2. Go to TheVoiceofJobSeekers.com, press the “Send Voicemail” button on the right side of your screen and leave a message
  3. Send email feedback to mark@thevoiceofjobseekers.com

I started noticing then following Good Hire a while ago. I loved their voice on employment  discrimination and the ex-offenders reentering the workforce. If you have been listening to this podcast for awhile, you know I champion the “Ban The Box” campaign—very related to how Good Hire is helping ex-offenders having a second chance. More than 30,000 employers rely on their skilled compliance experts, helpful US-based customer service reps, and customizable technology to build teams based on trust, safety, and fairness.

Get Ready for an Agile Job Search

The Voice of Job Seekers - Unemployed, Underemployed, Unappreciated Job Seekers Welcomed!

When I like a job search blog, I like to let you know about it. If you haven’t heard of Career Metis, then I encourage you to listen to this show and then head on over there. The blog founded by Nissar Ahamed is  likely to give your job search a boost.

I found Career Metis a long time ago, but in the last 15-16 months, he has published articles several times a week. Not only about resumes and cover letters, but also the workplace and productivity too. I’d be remiss if I did not mention his new podcast containing more than 20 episodes to date.

I would love to hear what you think about his blog. Share your thoughts with me in one of three ways:

  1. Call and leave a voicemail at 708-365-9822, or text your comments to the same number
  2. Go to TheVoiceofJobSeekers.com, press the “Send Voicemail” button on the right side of your screen and leave a message
