Ladies in tech, have you considered not letting us know you're female?

Re: Typical attitude from the unoppressed...

in my experience anybody with any sense recruits based on the substance of the resume and your conduct at interview. If there are dinosaurs out there using other methods you probably don't want to work for them anyway.

Call me a dinosaur then. Some years ago interviewed several women for a position and only one really stood out. Presented well. Knew all the right words and even managed to get them all in the right order. Owner of the business wanted to hire her on the spot and I urged caution until we had talked to her referees. All her referees said they would never rehire the lazy bitch again.
