Yolanda Spivey is an African American woman, she was unemployed for two years, and had applied for over 300 jobs to no avail — despite a having a decade’s worth of experience in the insurance industry, and a college degree. Spivey wrote in Techyville that as an experiment, she first started “declining to state” her ethnicity on Monster.Com’s Diversity Questionnaire, but that had no effect. Spivey then created a fake profile, with identical information, except that her fictitious job candidate was white, and was aptly named “Bianca White” (Bianca means “white” in Spanish). Suddenly, responses from employers came pouring in.
David Pakman discusses Spivey’s discovery, and also makes a surprising revelation about his own little experiment with ethnicity on The David Pakman Show.
