Anonymous CV

The fear of discriminating against people on the wrong grounds has risen to the discussion around the anonymisation of, among other things, a CV. An anonymous CV is about an attempt to work with an open-minded recruitment when you remove the information in a CV such as name, age, gender, etc.

Should you use anonymous CVs?

Often when you want to achieve a more unbiased result in your recruitment, the concept of an anonymous CV appears more and more often. But if you are to fully apply an open-minded recruitment, it is better to work with a CV-free recruitment altogether. Then you can start talking about assessing candidates in a much more equal way without prejudice and based on skills and employment potential. Using only certain parts in a process becomes impractical, but then it is better to adapt the entire recruitment process to open-minded recruitment.
