What's different about job searching in 2015
U.S News & World Report
If you're starting a job search in 2015 and haven't been on the market for a while, you might be surprised by how the job market and typical hiring processes have changed in the last 5 to 10 years. Part of this is a function of how the economy has led to more job seekers than there are jobs, part is attributable to changes in technology and part is simply changing norms of what a good hiring process entails. Regardless, it's a different world for job seekers than it was a decade ago.

Black and Latina women scientists sometimes mistaken for janitors
The Washington Post
In a series of famous studies designed to gauge at what age stereotypes sink into young minds, elementary school students were asked to draw a scientist. Kindergarteners' drawings in these Draw-a-Scientist tests were all over the map. But by second grade, one standard image had firmly taken root: A scientist wore a white lab coat and glasses.

For instance, female scientists and engineers are concentrated in the social sciences (58 percent) and biological and medical sciences (48 percent), but have a relatively low participation rate in engineering (13 percent) and computer and mathematical sciences (25 percent), according to 2014 data from the National Science Foundation.
