I recently got my degree in Computer Information Systems and I'm starting to wonder if I am not having a hard time getting a job because of my skin color because this field is in such a high demand. A caucasian person in his 50's told me that there is still racism in the US and that I will face color barrier when seeking a job even though I am educated .... Was he just saying that to PUT pennsylvania DOWN as a black person ??? Do educated black people in fields in demand like Computer Science or Finance get good paying jobs as POSITIONS in companies like white people ?? I live in Los Angeles , California Is racism in America still extremely bad to affect my chances of getting a job even though I have a degree in a good field .
Yes discrimination still exist. Anyway, despite the odds and stats on black unemployment. 99% of your success will hinge on your determination to suceed (hustle). If you are looking to get employed at IBM, Cisco, Intel....take a number and have a seat. You must network your way into these organizations. For IBM get in touch with their Black Employee Network Group. I'm sure Cisco and Intel has a similar organization as well. How to get connected??? Be bold and approach a black professional in these companies, pitch your story and that you are looking for a employment and mentorship. Please make sure your resume is polished and your story is 1 min or less (straight to the point). Secondly, stay in school (grad program) until you have a job and/or internship. Don't leave school without a job. If you have loans they will want you to start paying it back 6 + months after leaving school. Thirdly, pitch your skills to small businesses as a enterpenuer/consultant. Figure out your fee according to the market place and your experience/skill set. Go door to door to local businesses in your neighborhood. Do this while offering your services to temp agencies. Don't sit and wait for nothing or no one because the market doesn't care about you if you don't put forth the effort. The market want's hustlers and workers. Always sale yourself as a solutions specialist someone who can solve problems. Continue training and find ways to apply them. It's 2011, you can sing n#gr@ spirituals or get paid.
No. Yes you're right about discrimination still running rampant. Nowadays it's more "undercover" though. Back in the 90s you might get an interview or two from your resume "looking good on paper" but then not pass the in-person test. You know the one: when they SEE you all interest in you suddenly evaporates, sometimes they don't even know what to say, and the conversation turns to anything BUT the job duties or your actual qualifications for the job. They might even take one look at you and suddenly deny that there even IS a job, after all. Even if you get more than the courtesy brush-off interview you still never hear from them again and they manage to evade your calls and emails. You know, THAT treatment. Well that was the "roaring 90s" and by now you won't even hear back from your applications for the most part. The last time I heard anything back from even an Americorps application, a few years back, the response was that they'd gotten over 100 applications for 4 positions. And that was the last I heard from them. I've since stopped bothering with Americorps applications because the farther you are from graduating college the more unbelievably stratospheric the competition gets. By now you're probably looking at more than 1,000 applications for every 1 position and that's just with "volunteer" type things like Americorps. For full time paid jobs, I really don't know how anyone who's graduated recently expects to survive until they're in their 30's let alone reach "old age." Suffice it to say, computer engineering, along with Math, the physical sciences, and Law, are just fields in which the White "network" works and works at finding more ways to keep all minorities out. I find that there has been way more progress made towards fair inclusion and decent treatment of WOMEN in those fields than minorities. I figure I'm a woman before I'm a Native American but unfortunately most of the world doesn't see it that way.
You should have co-oped, dude. Or pursued a heavier degree like computer science instead of computer informations systems. I know people who graduated with applied physics and CS degrees who had no issues finding a job, but the economy IS bad. I'm switching my major to CS or some type of engineering because I already have the math courses. There are those out there who view Blacks with degrees as still being less educated than non-Blacks with the same degree. Your college should have a career center... their job is to help you find a job even after graduation. IDK... I'm an adult still trying to figure this ish out.
First of all, Affirmative action is reverse racism, "foo". Second, there will always be racism whether it be race, religion, gender, societal position, etc., don't let that keep you down and do not assume that you are not being hired just because you are black. If you are perfectly qualified you will find that job, it just may take some waiting. Especially in pennsylvania where everyone is looking for a job. Just keep looking around and maybe even consider moving somewhere different
I'm sure if you have the required skills and education, along with a great personality you will get hired. But I will have to say with the crazy economy I'm not sure that technological careers are doing so great. I mean I'm sure it is in some aspects, but I'm not sure overall. As far as racists go, yes they are here, but I'm sure not all businesses discriminate. If you suspect something I suggest you get an investigation going. On another note right now I'm currently a surgical tech which is a high demand job where I live, and right now I'm also going to school for nursing. These are the jobs that are in high demand right now.
Still exists, but far less of an issue in a field like computer science, as its a field still innovating. Finance, well, that might be another story. It doesn't mean you wont get hired, just beware of nepotism... Honestly, you should be fine in LA.
If you're truly worried about it I would move/up the ante. Move to an area that needs your experience and expertise. I would also look into moving into an industrious 'black' area. Black people do best in areas that are industrious with a black majority, of course. Either that, I would suggest going into a stronger field where the need is SO high they can't overlook you.
Bad economy, hurting every field.
If you network enough and do alot of co-op. I don't see why not.
Actually a business can not discriminate against your color, race, religion, or sex. Federal Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Laws I. What Are the Federal Laws Prohibiting Job Discrimination? Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII), which prohibits employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin; the Equal Pay Act of 1963 (EPA), which protects men and women who perform substantially equal work in the same establishment from sex-based wage discrimination; the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA), which protects individuals who are 40 years of age or older; Title I and Title V of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended (ADA), which prohibit employment discrimination against qualified individuals with disabilities in the private sector, and in state and local governments; Sections 501 and 505 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, which prohibit discrimination against qualified individuals with disabilities who work in the federal government; Title II of the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 (GINA), which prohibits employment discrimination based on genetic information about an applicant, employee, or former employee; and the Civil Rights Act of 1991, which, among other things, provides monetary damages in cases of intentional employment discrimination. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) enforces all of these laws. EEOC also provides oversight and coordination of all federal equal employment opportunity regulations, practices, and policies. Other federal laws, not enforced by EEOC, also prohibit discrimination and reprisal against federal employees and applicants. The Civil Service Reform Act of 1978 (CSRA) contains a number of prohibitions, known as prohibited personnel practices, which are designed to promote overall fairness in federal personnel actions. 5 U.S.C. 2302. The CSRA prohibits any employee who has authority to take certain personnel actions from discriminating for or against employees or applicants for employment on the bases of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age or disability. It also provides that certain personnel actions can not be based on attributes or conduct that do not adversely affect employee performance, such as marital status and political affiliation. The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has interpreted the prohibition of discrimination based on conduct to include discrimination based on sexual orientation. The CSRA also prohibits reprisal against federal employees or applicants for whistle-blowing, or for exercising an appeal, complaint, or grievance right. The CSRA is enforced by both the Office of Special Counsel (OSC) and the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB). Additional information about the enforcement of the CSRA may be found on the OPM web site at from OSC at (202) 653-7188 or at and from MSPB at (202) 653-6772 or at . This is the site where I got it from, it has lots of useful information. If an employer will not hire you do to your skin color they could get in big trouble, and could have some big hefty law suits coming there way.
