Hidden requirements for vacancies



After basically 7 years in Canada, I started to see patterns when I applied to jobs. I remember some years ago if I used my complete name on the process, it would be less likely that a company would call me, mainly because my complete name is not on the <european style> although it is European. Later on, I found some research that actually confirmed this.

Name bias

Affinity bias


Actually, there is a great deal of bias when recruiting.
