  • Why are hiring companies anonymous?

    We have chosen this feature to provide the utmost discretion to companies looking to hire personnel. Several reasons may explain why companies want to remain anonymous, such as:
    - For strategic matter
    - They want to avoid receiving an undesirable number of emails from recruiters for unsolicited solicitations, without having the candidate(s) before hand and thus wasting their time.
    - They want to test recruiters because they are not satisfied with the CVs they received

  • Why are recruiters anonymous?

    This allows for fairness among recruiters, without any distinction. The only relevant criterion becomes having the right candidate,qualified for the position and available.

  • Why do CVs need to be sent anonymously to hiring companies?

    CVs need to be sent anonymously because at the sending stage, the parties have no agreement between them yet. Sending anonymous CVs is the best way for companies to judge if the CVs they receive are interesting enough to proceed to the next stages (agreement on T&C's, sending the original CV, interviews, etc.)
