A strange phenomenon

June 20, 2012

On the topic of job ads, there’s a strange phenomenon going on out there. A non-trivial proportion of job ads conceal what company you’re applying for. Almost all of these “our client is a well-respected international company dealing in specialty chemicals”-ads also conceal what city you’d be working in. Sometimes you get a region, like Ruhrgebiet or Greater Berlin. Sometimes it only says “somewhere in Germany”.

Who applies for such positions? How many people can there be who want a new job and don’t care where in the country?

Also, why on earth do you want to conceal your company name when looking for new employees? Got something to hide?
