Unconscious Bias in Resume Screening

This course focuses on understanding cultural differences in resumé style and content to help you create an action plan for inclusive resume screening.

Skilled immigrants’ resumes often look different than traditional “Canadian” resumés. It’s important to look beyond these cultural differences to find the essential information you need to assess a candidate’s skills and experiences.

Learning outcomes:

  • Describe how cultural differences can influence how resumés are presented and screened
  • Understand the implications of these differences on the recruitment and selection process
  • Be able to create an action plan for inclusive resumé screening

Length: about 30 minutes
