Is this legal? If so, why isn’t this used more often to find diverse candidates?

EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY: Is there a BLACK WOMAN in the Silicon Valley with a computer science degree that recently graduated or will graduate in May?

I have a guaranteed job at Intel for you if you can get me a resume by TOMORROW. You'll start by the end of this week.

      Is it illegal? Doesn’t it just fall under the affirmative action category?

    Ya this sounds fake. "Guaranteed?" Start by the end of this week? That's not how hiring works at big companies.

      Unless it's "diversity hiring", where they basically just wanna make sure they've an actual black human in the office (they also get a hell lotta interest and diversity candidates as well, which they can further use it for future diversity hiring campaigns)

      Even then, start by the end of the week? A place as big as Intel has too much bureaucracy to move that fast.

      Whoever tweeted it is probably just overselling it so a bunch of people reach out to them and then they can take advantage of Intel's diversity referral bonus. That would explain why it sounds spammy and isn't from an official account

    I honestly don't understand how diversity hiring even works at the point. I'm all ears to anyone who can explain this post to me.

    You can’t use Facebook or google to target people based on race can you?

      Only for certain kinds of ads for Facebook. Not sure about Google.

      You can look at their other tweets. They deleted it and rewrote it.

    What is the difference between this or using facebook or google algorithms to target race and sex for ads? It happens all the time.

    This headline though, do you work for a crapshoot news outlet? “If it bleed it leads” 🤦‍♂️

    I could see this as being real. Probably pressure from a hire up to hire more diversity after a couple of diverse employees already left.
