Abstract
This report aims to investigate and increase the understanding for the recruitement process, and how recruiters create meaning. Within this area the focus is on recruiters implicit thoughts about applicants clothing and grooming, and how they evaluate these criteria in a CV.

Each CV had a photograph on it, showing someone that possibly could be classified as representatively, or not representatively dressed. To achieve a better understanding of the creation of meaning and the recruitement process as a whole, we used the qualitative software Meaning Constitution Analysis and the possible difference between the two groups were analysed...

This report aims to investigate and increase the understanding for the recruitement process, and how recruiters create meaning. Within this area the focus is on recruiters implicit thoughts about applicants clothing and grooming, and how they evaluate these criteria in a CV. Five recruiters at different national companies where asked to answer questions about six candidate´s CV:s. Each CV had a photograph on it, showing someone that possibly could be classified as representatively, or not representatively dressed. To achieve a better understanding of the creation of meaning and the recruitement process as a whole, we used the qualitative software Meaning Constitution Analysis and the possible difference between the two groups were analysed with The Sign Test. The findings showed a tendency among the recruiters to chose the applicants that were more representatively dressed. This indicates that they can not disregard the photagraphs and therefor give clothing a significance. We find it important to make recruiters aware of the problematics of this area, to be able to prevent empoyments based on irrelevant criteria. (Less)
