Last week, I traveled to the University of North Georgia to present a talk about “Unconscious Bias.” I recorded it so I can share it with you at least a part of it. I talk about how it affects everyone in their career, life, and workplace.
This is an important topic to me as it affects the job search. In the end, I hope we can create amicable and responsive dialogue to take out bias in the job search process.
As always, I invite you to join the conversation. Here are three ways you can do so:
- Call and leave a voicemail at 708-365-9822, or text your comments to the same number
- Go to TheVoiceofJobSeekers.com, press “Send Voicemail” button on the right side of your screen.

Unconscious Bias: Fear of the unknown
During my talk, I discuss how a safe environment to make the unconscious “conscious” was key. I posed the question as a theme how can we have respectful and amicable dialogue during the process. Everyone must feel alright about working through the language of bias and dismantling differences. Since my talk targeted the Student Affairs division and students, much of it was for them. My total talk was approximately an hour and a half.
