CONFIDENCE WHEN APPLYING FOR JOBS: Do men and women differ?

"…Share if you actually interview people and what that process is like for you and what you've noticed in terms of people's credentials versus their and their credibility versus who they are as a whole person. And also, if you've been applying to jobs, what is the experience for you?…"

"…And I was amazed when doing this training how much unconscious bias they had across the board. There are different frameworks to look at people, like diversity of people from many different perspectives. And I was shocked and surprised and realized I had a lot to learn myself in the hiring process. And then for me, applying, I definitely can relate to just like, excuse me, just wanting to take a shot at it.…"

"…It's that women operate differently with respect to how they move through the world and what we do each day. Those things are changing, right? Statistically, women are responsible not only for perhaps the job that they work outside of the home, but they're also responsible for the care of the home, the care of the children, sometimes older parents, et cetera. For instance, there was a I can't remember exactly where it was, but they were saying there was a joke.…"

@DBPardes ("Wasted time" for women "means" prioritizing time between work, children, elderly relatives, shopping, self care, etc. Not simply...)

"…So they did their own self study survey of men and women and they got these numbers saying that basically roughly both of them majority answer was that they just didn't feel they were qualified enough and they had nothing to do with the confidence issue but more of a competency issue but I didn't hear anything of race and I think the race aspect of it probably would mess up this whole thing and they asked well. So what race are you?…"

"…I think it's interesting when it comes to applying for jobs and thinking about the person's perspective that's going to be interviewing you and not having not having a sense of that person is but then thinking, okay, I'm a black woman, I'm an Asian woman, how's that going to play into this opportunity? And what has my life experience taught me? Have I been bitten down?…"

"…So that was really the only difference I saw and what Christine is saying as well. I totally saw that playing out in the employment field. For instance, I had a friend who had the same qualifications as me. We actually went and did a course together.…"

"…Even though teaching is supposed to be iconically, a female profession, I haven't seen a bias in that direction either. And I don't have enough experience in private industry only from when I was younger and I worked in retail and hospitality and the gaming industry. At the moment, in the mining industry in Western Australia, there's a huge investigation into sexual harassment.…"

"…And they'll pick someone who is beasley qualified for a position. I remember my organization that I used to be with. They had created an executivelevel role, and everyone was like, JL is definitely going to get that. That position is yours. You have your doctor degree. You've achieved this, you've achieved that. You've smashed fiscal, you've done that. You've brought the organization from here to there. You created a whole brand new department. It's yours.…"

"…What I mean by that is the order of finding the right candidate are very high between, say, the first ten resumes and given the fact that a recruiter works on five or six job requirements, you're talking about 563,000 resumes out there to look into. So if your resume comes in at number eleven, you are like the Google search history page too. People know it exists, but they don't go there. And so there is this amazing push to be seen first.…"

"…If an above average man could warrant a place in the upper echelons of management, so can a woman. And as compassionate as some men can be, we can't explain this beyond the point in time, right? It's up to the woman to understand that it's the job result that matters. And if she's delivering exactly what is required, then it does not matter. You don't need to show some extra something.…"

"…And on that side of the table, they're wanting to just not mess things up because there's more of a watchdog culture right now. But to your point, I'm not really seeing it. I think it goes well for the future of work, I think because there are so many new guidelines to help people create environments that seem fair.…"

"…When there's millions of potential applicants and you want to rise to the top ten, there's almost a miracle involved. But bringing stuff down to the brass hacks of communication and networking and human to human, that's always the goal. To have a human being feel like they're part of a human system and not part of this sort of this vast network of paper pushing, you know, to stand out. It's extraordinary. It's extraordinary to think about scale.…"
