About Me

I was born in Brooklyn, Trump was born in Queens. The only thing that makes people think I'm an H-1b stealing jobs from Americans is that my Grandparents immigrated from India, while Drumpf's immigrated from Germany. It's race, not citizenship. Americans are more diverse than you think. Millions of US citizens don't look the way you might expect. This fact is very important and will help us win elections.

What happens when women mentor men

https://www.cnn.com/2018/11/20/success/women-mentoring-men/index.html

We're used to seeing men as mentors. We're used to seeing them mentor other men, and we're also getting used to seeing them mentor junior women. As more women enter positions of leadership, we're also seeing a growing number of senior women mentoring other women.

But there's a mentor-mentee relationship we're not as familiar with: senior women mentoring junior men.
"To be honest, most of the research looks into men being mentors to women and whether this is effective," says Andromachi Athanasopoulou, associate professor in organizational behavior at Queen Mary University of London. "Far less research has looked at the opposite — a woman mentoring a man — because more men are in the leadership positions, so they are more likely to be mentors."
But there's something about these relationships that experts say is different, especially for the man being mentored.

When Lori Taylor, a vice president in the risk division at Goldman Sachs, returned to work after a six-year break to raise her children, she noticed both female and male employees approaching her for advice on balancing work and home responsibilities.
"I have some men who work for me who have long hours and commutes, and I get them to think about 'Do you want to work from home one day a week?'" she says. "We talk a lot about flexibility and the options you can create for yourself."


There's a Poppy Harlow video at the link.

Personally my mentor and mentee are both women. That's just who has stuck with me and committed to having regular discussions about our career progression in a field that doesn't have enough women or minorities yet.

Want to get hired? Your resume should look like this

https://www.cnn.com/2018/11/15/success/how-to-write-best-resume/index.html

You have seven seconds to make an impression with your résumé. So you better make every one count.

EXECUTIVE BRIEF
Your résumé should:
Be clear and concise on who you are and what you do
Detail accomplishments in digestible bits
Give personality at the end

"Those first seven seconds someone spends on your résumé are the deciding seconds on whether they like you or not," said salary and hiring coach Olivia Jaras. "They spend the rest of the time trying to corroborate that first impression."

Jaras is the founder of Salary Coaching for Women, which helps clients get hired and negotiate salaries.
Your résumé does more than just get you an interview, it also plays a role in determining your salary, she said.

That's why the format, word choice and tone are important to getting the reader on your side.
"It's playing mind games," Jaras said. "A good résumé doesn't sound too pushy, aggressive or assertive. It's a more subtle energy."'


Good advice at the link. Good luck DUers
