Any job seeker or talent acquisition professional will tell you about the challenges in the digital candidate experience. On one side, exasperated candidates blanket job websites with resumes and cover letters. On the other, overwhelmed talent acquisition teams struggle to read, evaluate, and process thousands of candidates a week.

Candidates seeking employment feel lost. They are adrift in a sea of thousands. They cling to the hope that an algorithm will latch on to the latest buzzword they added to their resume and rank them a few points higher than the rest.

Talent Acquisition departments feel lost too. No organization can realistically evaluate the sheer volume of digital applicants while simultaneously aligning with the strategic direction of their business. Even highly efficient talent acquisition teams struggle to maximize the value of their talent data once it’s been collected.

For both candidates and talent acquisition teams, the status quo is unsustainable. The only way to handle the volume of candidates with integrity is with intelligent automation. Artificial Intelligence for talent acquisition is here. Vettd can help.

The best way to understand Vettd’s technology is by visualizing a talent acquisition professional, let’s call her Valerie.

Like all professionals, Valerie showcases different skills depending upon her environment, surroundings, and audience.

Valerie has curated 3 versions of herself.

  • First, there is Valerie the Strategist. The Strategist is a big picture thinker, she spends her time researching industry trends to stay ahead of the curve. The Strategist delivers great insights for her team and extended leadership.
  • Her second side is Valerie the Creator. The Creator loves her job. She collaborates readily with her team and loves interacting with clients. She feeds off the creative energy of her job and shines brightly when presenting to outside teams.
  • The 3rd side is Valerie the Doer. The Doer thinks her job is just okay. The Doer works alone on repetitive tasks and carefully reviews information to complete action items on time. The Doer isn’t always excited to sit down at her laptop to work, but it’s part of the job and everyone has aspects of their job they don’t like.

Valerie dreams of spending more of her workday as the Strategist and the Creator, but the Doer’s responsibilities take up too much of her time. In the past, Valerie would have to accept this as a reality of the job, but now Vettd can help Valerie realize her dream.

How Vettd can help

Vettd can use automated Neurals (read: ‘AI models’ if you prefer) to clone the most tedious of The Doer’s workflows. Valerie can train Vettd’s Neural to complete her workflow to the same high level of expertise as Valerie herself. For example, she could use a Neural to classify skills in inbound resumes. Now, Valerie doesn’t need to sink hours each day into reviewing and skill tagging hundreds of resumes. With the Neural in place, she can use her Strategist or Creator’s brain to supervise her Doer Neural and even change how it works if her organization decides to change course.

Ultimately, Valerie is more satisfied getting to spend more time as a Strategist and Creator. Her manager is happier too — she loves that Valerie can contribute great insights to the team while continuing to make great hires.

How Talent Classification Works
Talent classification is a simple concept to grasp but can be a difficult practice to adopt without the right tools. We refer to talent classification as the process of categorizing human capital according to shared qualities or characteristics. This process helps you recognize, differentiate, and understand the talent you have at your disposal. Decision-making in talent acquisition and strategic workforce planning becomes much more straightforward with this level of insight.

The Transparency Problem with AI - Part 2
Transparency in data privacy involves openness; being willing to share with users all aspects of usages of their personal data. This includes an openness on what is being collected, why it is being collected, how it is being analyzed, and how the decisions being made by AI algorithms were decided (what output parameters drove the decisions made by the AI algorithms).
