Why AI Is Reading Your Resume and What Can You Do About It

#artificialintelligence

The human recruiting process has a long timeframe and high complexity, but can simplified into four key words: searching, screening, interviewing and hiring. Today's large global labour force and convenient online application systems however have put a stain on the screening part of the recruiting process. An average of 250 resumes are received for each corporate job opening -- a number that continues increasing -- and it takes an experienced recruiter about five minutes to review each resume. Moreover, in spite of the time-consuming resume reviewing process, hiring remains plagued by randomness and uncertainty often due to unconscious human subjectivity and biases. Many companies around the world are asking the same question: How to objectively and efficiently identify the best candidates from a huge pile of resumes?

Your resume: Getting past the screening machine

Los Angeles Times

Question from readers, everywhere: How do I write a resume that will get me hired? I have a confession: The shame of my first resume -- savaged by an academic advisor for its bloated, clumsy prose -- haunts me to this day. Also, it's been years since I submitted a resume with a blind application or reviewed any to fill a position. So while I know the basics, I have no idea what makes a resume stand out today. But after five years of dodging your resume questions, I've decided to seek out professionals who live, breathe and love this stuff.
