I did this yesterday and had the same results as the lady in the OP. I used Monster.com.
I used my normal resume with my real name, then created a duplicate resume (copy + paste) and changed my -
- Name - I used my middle name and my extended family's last name
- School - I changed the name of my first undergrad (an HBCU) to a more 'diverse' university
- Voice mail - changed my voice mail to remove my recording of my name. Instead, it is the automated 10-digit phone number
- Race - Selected 'Caucasian female' on my profile
I applied to the same jobs with both resumes...
At 8:15 this morning, my 'Caucasian' female received a phone call for a job offer...
