Implicit Bias in Resumes

Academic research has shown recruiters read resumes in a systematic pattern, taking 6.25 seconds to make a yes/no decision. Add implicit recruiter bias to the vetting process, and it’s shocking any resume advances to candidate status.

Listen in as Dr. Cheryl Minnick reviews data around implicit name, gender, age and motherhood bias and how bias manifests in resume review. You will also learn ways candidates are beating bias, and what WE can do to diminish implicit bias in resume review. View the recording of the webinar below.

We're currently in the process of gathering the strategies that professional resume writers and career coaches have used with clients and would welcome your input! Please email it to Marie at marie@resumewritingacademy.com and we'll share it in a summary here.
