An expert in Blind Recruiting Software Implementation practices (Enterprise & Job by Job) along with Name-Blind & Blind recruitment practices. Blind recruitment only works during the pre-interview selection process. Once candidates arrive for interview, conscious and unconscious bias can still creep in. That’s why we recommend using our BTB interview scorecards to make the interview process as fair and objective as possible.
