The future of jobs is changing and so is the way you apply for those jobs.
6 years ago (a lifetime in technology) I (Andrew Nicol CEO) wrote 14 tips to stand out when applying for a job. Well the way we apply for jobs and big data is changing the whole job seeker experience so here’s my latest tips:
Help the machines
Computers and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are now doing a lot more of the screening and recommendations to companies of who they should employ.
Companies are using technology like crazy. You can too.
You are human. You are beautifully uniquely you. Make sure you take every opportunity to show that.
Will machines completely replace humans in the recruitment process? Yes & No
Yes – Some big companies already have systems that fully automate the process.
No – Most companies will have a bunch of tools that help automate the process and real humans talking with real humans.
The big question: If a company dehumanizes me in the recruitment process, will they genuinely care about me as a human being when I get the job?
