Live far away from the office? Have an accent? These are some examples of how you can be unfairly rejected from a position. Have you been rejected because of these things? I suspect I had, and I can imagine that is true for many of you. Bias are pervasive and sometimes even well meaning managers, such as myself, who have worked as a software engineer manager for years, have committed in the past.
In this episode I confess to some of these biases and expose how some questions fester biases. Then Fatima and I will show you ways to overcome them, so you can obtain fulfilling positions and careers.
