Abstract

The purpose of this thesis was also to point out the importance of the use of language in recruiting personnel and to hopefully encourage organizations to put effort into text production to avoid discrimination. In this early stage of the recruitment process there is the risk of unintentional discrimination and by pointing this out a greater consciousness regarding the production of text can be reached. The two texts studied in this analysis represented public and private sector. The analysis revealed that both texts were conventional and thereby reproduce the current order of discourse, which in turn may contribute to the gender segregation in the labour market. (Less)
