*** No Bootcamp Applicants ***

No bootcamp applicants is not the same as no woman applicants. It is discrimation, to be sure. But no woman applicants discriminates on a immutable characteristic, regardless of qualifications. A boot camp applicant can get more side project experience and then be known as the person who worked on x,y,z. As opposed to a woman who is always a woman…

I bring this up because there is systemic discrimination against women in tech and this type of comparison is unhelpful. (And for those who don’t think there is discrimination against women, try doing a day long technical interview without an opportunity to lactate)

I sympathize with your plight. It’s their loss.
