🚩 If your company is talking about an “innovative” plan to improve the hiring process by getting AI to read resumes for you… Run.
What is that telling potential applicants? What are you really selecting for? Unless you’re hiring for a professional resume writer, this is not the answer.
On the flip side, how do you know you haven’t missed out on a great candidate because they’re not an excellent resume writer?
Spoiler: AI can certainly read resumes quicker and find you those keywords but it doesn’t solve any real problems.
A truly innovative idea?
– Allow candidates to be compared apples to apples
– Screen 100% of applicants (give ’em all a fair shot)
– Ditch the resume and get rid of unconscious bias with it
