Recruiting processes in tech can be a big barrier for early-career devs, especially for young first-timers who just graduated and want to break into tech. Many processes are outdated, irrelevant for the 21st century or (some) older people in tech can be gatekeepers. How can young devs create change in this aspect?
Here's a story about a software developer from India (15+years of experience) - who not only helped frontend engineers get a job, but also advocated the change in the type of interviews (having role specific interviews only) and now many companies have accepted the change.
What I wanted to say from the story is - only one person speaking up can bring the change!
Alternatively, you can always politely talk with the HR of the particular company about the things you don't like and would appreciate change. If that does not work, you can reach out to someone on LinkedIn of the same company expressing your grievances and hoping they would take some action. If not, you can always call out such actions!
Also, I highly recommend the book "Whistle Blower" by Susan Fowler, her one blogpost brought massive changes and broke the internet!
That's really helpful advice! Thank you so much for taking the time to give such a detailed response.
It is my pleasure!
Great question mate.
