I have to interview several candidates which come from different cultures and backgrounds, some of these cultures have their names on the CV as:
Sometimes, this can make it tricky to work out which name to use when sending emails to contact them. I generally use Dear Ms/Mr Surname but I've had several candidates where I couldn't work out what their surname was. Generally I tend to look them up on LinkedIn as, that uses a standard format. But they often don't have a LinkedIn profile. Are there any other methods to work out which is the correct name to use? Do I just apologise in advance stating I'm unable to work out which is their surname?
