Anonymous Job Applications

I am surprised no one has highlighted this report today - it makes interesting reading... applying for a job anonymously will probably make a huge difference to your hit rate...unless you have a nice swiss name of course, like me.

They should generalize this kind of procedure because now it's only for "apprentissage" place

Re: Anonymous Job Applications

It really depends if the companies support it. One would hope that they have no reason not to....

An interesting point is that some agencies do not even give names of apoplicants to the client, and certainly not their address. So to be honest you could simply use a nom-de-plume until they client really wants you. It is more difficult for them to backtrack then...

Re: Anonymous Job Applications

I read it.

I just didn't want to come across as cerebral on the forum.

I often find the best way to achieve that, is to miss the word "to" out of some of my sentences...

Re: Anonymous Job Applications

I am glad you saw what I did there.

Naturally it was deliberate.
