Underrepresented minority groups are undervalued in the workforce resulting in a largely untapped reservoir of skill. Women, people of color, and people with accessibility needs face discrimination in the hiring process. This problem was experienced firsthand when my mother found out she was paid less than the men who reported to her. Our idea is the NoFace app, where job-searchers can create anonymous profiles with auto-generated usernames without pictures. Each user’s profile will showcase their resume, skills, and education. Job interviews will be facilitated through the app using a gender-neutral voice transmitter without a camera. NoFace would give every user the opportunities they deserve by focusing solely on their skills. It will assist in ending the gender pay gap and level out the playing field globally for job applicants. By diversifying the workforce, NoFace can ensure that the next generation will have a brighter, less discriminatory future.

In fact, you need to understand that now it is very difficult for many people to get a job as they want. As well as for job seekers, it is difficult to find a professional because there is a lot of competition for one place, but it is not easy to find the right one among them. Especially it has affected such an area as IT, which is gaining popularity, but there are not so many real professionals who can do professional work. That is why so popular became nearshoring, which helps with this selection. Just here you can read it nearshoring and understand what it is and how now Europe earns on it. Very interesting and relevant material, I learned a lot for myself. And in general, this area has become very promising and effective.
