Join the Debate: Recruiters, Minority Retention

Join in by adding your thoughts to this week's most commented-on articles.

For all the talk of diversity on Wall Street, people of color tend to look toward the door at certain points in their career - nudged by a pattern of events that may hold clues to more effective retention efforts. Can Wall Street break the pattern?

Not according our commentators: "Change won't happen... The culture is so ingrained versus women and minorities getting access to power and money that it isn't worth it to try."

Are they right? Add your comment to Minority Retention Requires Real Change, Group Says.

After fielding too many cold calls from headhunters, some cynics might argue it's not so much "how to choose a recruiter," as "how to avoid being chosen." But that's just the cynics. There's no doubt that if you want to change jobs, it helps to be proactive. So how do you choose?

"What this article fails to mention is the abundance of fraudulent recruiters on many job posting Web sites," says one user, while another points out entry level candidates "are forced to apply to all the recruiters, no matter how good or bad."

Join the conversation on Choosing the Right Recruiter.

    12 years on the street with the six bulge bracket firms and some my observations... Special doesn't mean having to write twice as many reports to get to the "next level". Or having to run by more of your decisions past the committee.
    Equal is when those of color can also have there gardner brought in as pay level 6 special analyst. Or when you can hire your personal trainer as a temp and promoted to vice president within three months of hire. Or when you can hire your son still in college as a project manager of IT. When people of color can do that. then I think the term is Equal..
