I’m a Woman in Tech, But Even I Didn’t “Get It” Until This Week

I agree that this sort of “cultural fit” is very important (and it’s unfortunate that “cultural fit” in a lot of companies means “you’re just like the rest of us”) so I would like to pose a question: why do you conduct this interview at the _end_ of the process, having already spent so much time and effort — both yours and the candidates’ — when you could, presumably, conduct this interview first and eliminate a whole class of candidates who don’t contribute to the culture of diversity?

After all, if a candidate is truly a great fit for the company’s culture, they can be trained up on a lot of specific technical details — it’s much harder to take a great technical candidate and train them to “fit” a diverse culture, if it’s not already in their nature.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
