I’m a lawyer. After I was hired by my first law firm, I was told in confidence that one of the reasons I was hired (besides my general legal brilliance, of course) was that most of the firm’s partners were Jewish and they were consciously attempting to hire more non-Jewish associates. But, as it turns out, the joke was on them. I’m Jewish. They just ended up hiring a Jew who didn’t look — at least to them — Jewish. So I guess the point is that even if you want to hire outside your comfort zone, it’s sometimes more of a challenge than it might seem.
