Redacted resume screening
We’ve digitized the process of reviewing candidate resumes. Our tool processes PDF, Word, and Text documents to recognize personally identifiable information. We then redact or block out the candidate’s name, email address, and URLs. Additionally, you can choose to redact headshots, schools/universities, company names, or dates.
Hiring managers can review based on skills and experience rather than fixate on a detail that may denote a gender, race, age, or ethnicity. We are the only platform that redacts within the original resume. This way, candidates get to choose how they present themselves, keeping format, presentation, and personality intact.

- Social Media URLs

Resume + blind screening = objective reviews
Studies have shown that it takes six seconds to review a resumé. Six seconds isn’t enough time to do a thorough spell-check, let alone determine if a candidate is a good fit for the job. It is the amount of time it takes to read a candidate’s name, university attended, and maybe see a previous employer’s name. Generally, what takes place is the reviewer feels either comfort or discomfort (aka bias) with the candidate name or school they attended and makes a snap decision without thoroughly reviewing the resume.
When the candidate’s information is redacted, aside from experience, skills, abilities, and level of education, the reviewer can then look more objectively at a candidate’s competencies, improving the likelihood diverse groups of candidates will progress through the recruiting process.
PII is redacted to enable the reviewer to stay focused on SKAs.
A light gray color is used to redact information and smoothly blend into the background.
