Big data and Recruiting: What no one is talking about?

Anyone working in the recruiting business is well aware of the immense workload and pace the profession requires putting in.

Most importantly, recruiting is not some random skill that you can master once and set the remaining career on autopilot because it involves constant learning.

This is the reason HR professionals and hiring experts resort to HRMS tools and solutions to get the job done.

It is almost by default that any recruiters, salespeople or networkers need to have a LinkedIn account.

With millions of users on that platform, it is the easiest way to plug into a vast network which you can dissect, sort and filter.

And joining LinkedIn is free so there is no reason not to.

Applicant tracking system (ATS) was supposed to help. Instead, typical systems deploy non-semantic matching and basically surface the resume with the best SEO.

LinkedIn helped somewhat by providing the world’s biggest database for companies and agency recruiters to mine.

HR Terminology explained

Every business sector has its terms and phrases used. To fully understand what is being said in the HR world, you need to understand the jargon and pick out the key points from the waffle.

It can sometimes feel like you are learning an entirely new language, but once you have the basics, you can start to build up conversations with other people at company team building events and other networking opportunities.
