the big reason i get super harsh with all those info graphics and job
hunting advice things
i fucking wish that i’d been able to find good, practical job hunting
IaoPoC looking for work
becuase, while, I’ve got that light skin (and more recently the white
no one was really able (and online advice never helped) to prepare me for
the vast amounts of biases and systemic discrimination that accrues around
looking for work.
because of me not understanding these nuances
i really would have needed someone to tell me that
dressing femme is a bad idea
that i need to send out a lot more resumes since my name will have 30% of
people just tossing out my resume without reading it
that my swishy body language was all not good
‘cause i wonder how many else people look at all the job hunting advice
that is out there
and think that
“what i need to do to get a job is be someone who isn’t me”
And I wish that there was more advice that actually helped people like me
cope with this reality
becuase all the hard times i’ve had with finding work. it would have been
nice to know that it isn’t about how much i’m actually worth. at all.
