A smart recruiting platform, Leap.ai has a goal to make job hunting a little easier. The company recently announced the launch what it's calling "Instant Match." This tool will match up job seekers that upload their resume with the companies that are based in their database. Those job seekers just have to answer a few questions and they can refine their options further. The goal is to find people the jobs they want instead of similar jobs on their resume.
“Right now, for a job seeker, there are two things you do: You go to job boards, and once you go there, you put in a keyword and it returns 2,000 jobs,” Zhou said. “It takes you a very long time to figure out what works. We really believe the right AI tech to apply to this experience is to understand the user really well and give them the job matching results right away. We’ve seen this instant gratification work in other domains, it actually changes user behavior.”
This is a classic problem for both job seekers and recruiters. A recruiter might get a ping from a company looking to hire a head of product with a laundry list of requirements, or that job just ends up on a job board somewhere on the Internet like Indeed.
