Episode 16: World of Warcraft Resumes & Other Follow Ups

Posted on

In Episode 16, we follow up on some past topics and also dig into a new debate. A few episodes ago, we talked about diversity data released by Google. Apple has followed suit by releasing its own data, and we will talk about their employee diversity and the media’s reaction. We saw an article on the same topic of a recent Work Hugs Twitter discussion: World of Warcraft on your resume. And remembering our college episode, we look at the lowest paying college majors (for enry level jobs), and talk about keeping that kind of data in perspective. We also delve into an interesting debate on “Ban the Box,” a moment about removing the question about criminal convictions from job applications. And in What’s Dumb with Kristin, we have some thoughts about the trap of Frantic Recruiting.
