I am reviewing a set of CVs for a senior position. I need to provide a short summary of each CV with a proceed/drop recommendation. Here is a sample:
Ford Prefect: From his CV, he seems to have successfully moved away from functional role A to functional role B. He has been performing role B for the past 5 years; the last instance when he performed role A was when he was employed with Slartibartifast, Inc. which he left in 2011. Since the requirement calls for candidates with advanced experience in role A, he is not suitable for this role.
Now, I do want to write this in a gender-neutral manner. Right now I make a guess about the gender of the candidates from their names and use the appropriate pronouns, but I don't want to do that. I am also wary of looking up social media profiles (LinkedIn etc.) to identify gender. What could be the best way to structure the above summary to do this?
