Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Recruiting – Salvation at Last?

Posted · Add Comment

How exactly can AI specifically help recruiting? By reducing time to hire, improving the quality of hire, and making the experience for job candidates far better.

Integrated within an Applicant Tracking System (ATS), AI can review resumes, select qualified candidates for interview, and schedule meetings. In the process, it can also review candidates who applied for, but were not chosen for, other positions – yet may offer the right qualifications for a different role.

Posted · Add Comment

As the next and hopefully final phase of your journey with breast cancer begins: the return to work. Others may have fought the disease while still on the job.

Time to update that resume and hit the job boards.

Should you try to hide or come up with creative excuses for your time unemployed?

Based on HireRight’s 2017 Employment Screening Benchmark Reports published by our United States (U.S.) and Europe/Middle East/Asia (EMEA) regions, it appears that more than just a vast ocean separates us.
