In a Harvard Business Review article Resumes Are Messing Up Hiring, the authors explore the potential bias that can occur when applicants are screened for employment.
Interesting points to consider:
1. What role will CV’s and Resumes play in future recruitment?
2. Does a wealthy family history ensure more opportunity?
3. Will the growing use of tools to analyze an applicants “fit” – based on behaviour, values and other more personal indicators, lessen any inequality that may exist and instead widen the talent pool?
Take a look at the article and see what you think.
