Discrimination in the Job Search: Part II

Posted on August 9, 2012. Filed under: CIO | Tags: , , |

On Wednesday, August 8th, the Tech Career Forum held their weekly #TCFchat discussion. The topic was discrimination by employers in the job search and hiring process.

Our panel concluded that discrimination does occur in various forms. Some are insidious and some are not. In fact, much of what candidates typically perceive as discrimination is actually an employer recognizing their right to be discriminating (picky as a result of preferences and an understanding of the personality type that fits best).

Also discussed were some new ways employers were checking candidate backgrounds and the methods job seekers can employ to avoid such things or use them to their advantage.

To view the full recap of the chat, go to our Tech Career Forum LinkedIn Group page to view the recap or go to the Storify page.

Or feel free to weigh in here. We’d love to hear from you.
