A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to be interviewed by Anne Kennedy and Gillian Muessig, co-founders of Outlines Venture Group for their weekly show on Webmaster Radio.

How to Hire the Right Talent to Take Your Company Forward is a rare chance to hear me tell it like it is in a podcast, as I go back and forth on public speaking, sometimes seeking it out and sometimes staying the hell away due to my own insecurities 🙂

It was a pretty brief interview but I did get the opportunity to focus on how poor job postings and recruiting processes get in the way of good, diverse hiring, along with calling out those who claim we have a shortage of candidates or make big PR statements about how they’re going to “focus on diversity” without actually DOING a damn thing to change how they hire.
