Anonymous CV

The fear of discriminating against individuals based on incorrect grounds has sparked the discussion surrounding the anonymization of a CV, among other things. An anonymous CV is an attempt to promote unbiased recruitment by removing information such as name, age, gender, and more.


Should you use an anonymous CV?

When aiming for a more unbiased outcome in recruitment, the concept of an anonymous CV is often brought up. However, to fully implement unbiased recruitment, it is better to work with a CV-free recruitment process altogether. This allows for evaluating candidates in a much fairer manner, without any preconceptions and solely based on their skills and potential for employment. Utilizing only certain aspects of the process would be insufficient, so it is preferable to adapt the entire recruitment process to ensure fairness and impartiality.
