Women in Tech
Is it possible to fake as a man in phone interview? Will it help getting more pay?
As title. Disregard the ethical and political issues, if you have a device to transform your voice, could you possibly get more opportunities and pay?

- Love this! Women who cry "the software engineering world is unfair towards women", learn this: most men in sw don't give a shit about your gender. If you're smart, you'll be respected. The smartest member on my team is a woman.
So, if you indeed think you're unfairly rejected in an interview, there's a good chance you're not smart enough. Just like men who go through the same thing.Mar 96
- Amazon Jеff BezоsThere was one woman suing Google for gender discrimination in leveling because she was hired as L3 while men with her yoe were getting hired as L4. A man with her interview performance likely wouldn’t have been hired at all. Now Google got itself a lawsuit because of “diversity”.Mar 103

- Facebook ImranKhanJust get a man to do the phone interview. That will also increase the chances of success with the phone screen. That being said, don't come after me with SJW shit. I don't care as Sharia law doesn't mention women as humans.
- Western Digital xfcs35As far as I know the pay is not decided over the phone. Phone calls are just to screen you before they decide to bring you in. So no, your trick won't work
- Indeed cyhy46I doubt it.
Given what I've seen from the hiring side of things, women are frequently given more slack than men, and any pay differences, if any, stem mostly from a lack of aggressive negotiation.
If you were to impersonate a man during interviews, not only would this not have any effect on your negotiating strategy, but it might actually penalize you due to avoiding the aforementioned slack

Another option is to really negotiate and if you do, be willing to walk away if they don’t come close. I’ve done that a few times in my career and it was almost always the right call.
One trick I have used when I worked with recruiters for major US companies is to negotiate more pay in RSU than previously offered. Do this if you can live off the lower base. It does have risk that the stock goes down, but also gives more wiggle room for salary bumps based on performance—and stock appreciation.
