I have no jobs because of discriminating issues. Firstly, I passed the exams to be a Personal BANKer and Analyst for Bank of AMerica. As a result, the corporate recruiter notified me via email and telephone interview. After the telephone interview, she scheduled me to meet with the hiring managers for another interview (a specific person). I am a very light-skinned black woman and while waiting for my interview, at first there were only black men interviewers but a very dark-skinned woman kept walking pass the room and noticed at me. She was my interviewer and a light-skinned black man. The man told me I would be contacted by a recruiter to complete the hiring process, but the woman gave me an evil look. Also, this happened to me with IBM a dark black woman did not give me the job.
Ultimately, you have to prove the reason you did not get offered the job is because of discriminatory conduct. Discrimination cases place the burden of proof on a plaintiff during a burden shifting analysis. You allege you were discriminated against because of your inclusion in a protected class, the company offers any and all legitimate business reasons why they did not hire you, then you have to prove this is a lie (pretext) to cover up the real reason. The cases are very fact specific. I would recommend scheduling a consult with an attorney or contacting the EEOC. Ultimately, you have to hVe more than just a feeling.
