Survey Busts Recruiting Software Myths

Recruiting software is still very much misunderstood. For every company that uses software in their hiring process, we come across those who have never even heard the term ‘applicant tracking’. Until this technology is more widespread, there remain some misconceptions: “it’s too expensive,” “I won’t have ownership of my data,” “it’s really difficult to learn” etc. However, looking at results from a recent survey completed by recruiting technology research firm Software Advice, we can see that current recruitment software users are proving three big misconceptions to be completely untrue Continue reading

U of C to Assist HireGround With a Project Entitled “Mining HR Knowledge from Text”

Calgary, AB (October, 2014) – HireGround Software Solutions has been selected by the University of Calgary, Computer Science Department as one of the industry collaboration projects for the capstone course CPSC 594. The project is in the area of “Mining HR Knowledge from Text” and is going over two terms (Fall 2014 – Spring 2015). CPSC 594 is a senior undergraduate course for those students wishing to receive a BSc with a concentration in Software Engineering.

The goal of the course is for students to apply their software engineering knowledge in a practical project that is relevant to the industry. It is part of the departments effort to ensure that the science and engineering knowledge gained from the courses taken in the Software Engineering program is complemented by experience from running real-world projects of practical relevance, as stated by Guenther Ruhe, the academic leading the course.

Four software engineering students will focus on harvesting Human Resources based knowledge from the text corpus and the web over the coming eight month period. This HR knowledge base will assist HireGround in building an intelligent system to automate mapping and searching between resumes and job descriptions.

“The support the University of Calgary will offer in assisting HireGround in meeting this goal is much appreciated” said Marilynn Kalman, President of HireGround Software Solutions as “automatically deriving a knowledge base from mountains of resumes both documents and web-based is an enormous task”.

One Simple Way to Improve your Hiring Data

We have a great, long-time client whose team does something interesting: they write a note on each applicant to say why that person didn’t make the cut. We thought this was such a great idea we incorporated rejection reasons into our new software from the very beginning. Whether you track this information with manual notes, or as part of a system feature, this information can help you in many ways. We’ve listed six, and hope they’ll make you consider tracking rejections as part of your process. Continue reading
