Am I seeing red flags?
Just curious about this. Maybe it's no big deal and maybe it is. When I have applied to jobs mostly online jobs I rarely get called in for an interview. The very few times I got called in before the employers ever saw me in person, I had this bad feeling in my gut I was not going to get the job. I never showed signs of my discomfort once I got to the job interview. I was holding it in the whole time with a straight face. When I got there I could not help but notice everyone who worked at these places of employment were white. I saw not one african american working in the whole establishment. If I was lucky to see a black person working in the business, that is all there was. A black person meaning there was only one from what I witnessed when I was there for the job interview.
Deep down I felt like I knew exactly what the white person was thinking once they seen me for the first time show up at the interview. I mean my resume looked great for them to call me in for the interview. I am the same person they were interested in based on what they saw on my resume. It was only when saw the person who wrote the resume is what may have threw them off. Yeah the white people that were interviewing me were all polite and smiley face while I was there, but something inside me kept saying this person was thinking once thing. That was "Oh you're a black person." I know I may be getting this wrong, but I am just telling you what I have been feeling deep down for a long time everytime I show up at a job interview which is hardly ever. Are the red flags there if I see all white people working at these places with only a number of black people you can count on one hand not even using all five fingers? I see very little black people working at any white collar profession with the majority being white people. I have yet to go to a job interview and see another minority interviewing me. I am from Alabama, so that is rare to me.
