Gender Inequality on LinkedIn is REAL 😾😾
Why do "Recruiters open men’s profiles more frequently"?
When looking at female and male candidates on LinkedIn, recruiters are 13% less likely to click on a woman’s profile when she shows up in search. (Source: LinkedIn Gender Insights Report)
According to the report, "Gender impacts the candidate journey."
Some tips for gender-balanced hiring:
- Share authentic stories about your work culture.
- Ensure your job descriptions arenít gendered.
- Focus on performance objectives.
An important part of achieving gender balance at work is addressing unconscious bias in the sourcing process.
Remember: Men & Women both deserve equal opportunity.
P.S: I've pledged to help both men & women who are currently unemployed, update their LinkedIn profiles so they can get more visibility from the recruiters & hiring managers. If you know someone who needs the help, I'll be happy to schedule a 15-minute call with that person to help them out. Just shoot me a message on LinkedIn.
