- Should I Anglicize My Name on My Resume? 5 answers
I had someone suggest using an American/European name instead of my own after it proved successful for him. I've also read many articles about white sounding names receiving better job prospects. I understand it is not illegal to use a false name on a resume but that I would have to write my real name on any legal documents.
How does using a different name on my resume work with my github, LinkedIn, email and portfolio which all use my real name?
Should I tell the HR person during the interview(s) my real name, so that doing background checks and contacting previous employers causes no confusion.
Has anyone gone through this? Is there any thing you learned from your experience you are willing to share?
