Innovative inclusive employment career website, VERCIDA, has announced a partnership with Irish data science firm, Opening.io, to provide a world-first job-matching service using artificial intelligence (AI).
The new arrangement means VERCIDA will be integrating Opening.io’s artificial intelligence technology into their career website and using intuitive searching to help people find work that suits their skills and profile. The groundbreaking system allows candidates to directly upload their CV to the VERCIDA site, then see suitable vacancies seamlessly matched to them.
This is possible because Opening.io’s technology uses deep learning to understand both the skills and knowledge that candidates bring – as well as the needs of the industries they may work in. It first reads a candidate’s CV to establish their experience, then whether they fit with any currently available vacancies. Finally, it marries this up with what it already knows about different industries and opportunities to find the perfect match between jobseeker and employer.
The cognitive engine is built and trained on both resume and job data, as well as industry and sector specific data. The core of this talent technology is Natural Language Understanding.
The Job search is dead. All hail AI-powered CV matching
This candidate-focused approach is a break away from traditional job-searching boards where candidate details could fall unmatched and unnoticed amid hundreds of thousands of other people. Using Opening.io’s technology, VERCIDA can ensure that when a candidate’s background fits an open job opportunity they will definitely not be missed.
The new partners also recognise the potential that comes from having useful data available to help jobseekers. The service will, for example, give an average market salary for a CV (based on the skills and experience readable within it). Other projects on the horizon include AI-driven automatic notifications for jobseekers who match the needs of newly-posted jobs.
