In an effort to reduce implicit bias, the City of Anacortes often utilizes a blind hiring process for application review and initial interviews. Applicants’ information including demographics, names, addresses, relationships, and references are removed prior to application review. Candidates will only be identified with a first name through the initial interview phase. Our hope is that anonymizing applications will, again, reduce bias and ensure assessments are based upon qualifications. If you have questions or concerns regarding this process, please reach out to the Human Resources Department.
