Do you want to hire highly qualified diverse technical employees for your startup company? This new resource, created specifically for NCWIT startup members, offers recommendations such as casting a wide inclusive net, avoiding stereotyped language and décor, as well as using more varied approaches.
Here’s an excerpt from NCWIT’s Top 10 Ways to Hire the Best for Your Computing Startup:
#3. Cast a wide net when you advertise openings. Specifically send notices to groups, publications, coding clubs, and “hacker schools” that have many technical women and minority members and readers.
As an NCWIT member, you have access to several lines of NCWIT communications to help you cast a wider net.
If your startup company has job openings, send an email to email@example.com with a link to the job posting, and we’ll be sure to spread the word.
If your company posts openings on Indeed.com, then they’ll also appear on the NCWIT website at ncwit.org/memberjobs.
Put internship or job opportunities in front of young technical women by tapping into the NCWIT Aspirations in Computing community. Submit your opportunity at aspirations.org/node/add/opportunity.
