Anonymous Job Applications Dumped

Seven government agencies that tested out anonymous job applications have ditched the method. It was hoped that by making sure all job-seekers were anonymous any possible sexism or racism would be taken out of the equation.

But the agencies say that they saw no real difference in the types of people that ended up coming in for interviews compared to more traditional methods. They also say the new system was more complicated and also more expensive.
