This inflates a bubble of illusionary competency with kindness and self-esteem. The tools don’t defend themselves and your compadres indulge you. So there’s nothing to puncture that bubble. (Well, unless you venture onto the internet. Strangers are always eager to tell you how incompetent you are, if you fail to justify the technology choices they already made.)
However, the most fascinating answer is from Gemmy, Hired’s Head of Product — applying machine learning and big data to help with the sourcing and hiring process. He mentioned that Hired’s product team is using machine learning algorithms to match candidates with the jobs they will most likely to be interested in, based on data from candidates’ profile and companies’ job descriptions. I think this is a total game changer because it will completely democratize the hiring process.
