Unmasking the True Potential in Resumes

Just as Halloween costumes can cloak one's true identity, CVs often hide behind a mask of carefully chosen keywords or sometimes can be overlooked because of the lack thereof.

Candidates may have their own style in writing their CV and Recruiters and Sourcers cannot rely exclusively on matching keywords as in a common Boolean string application.

Candidates may adorn their resumes with keyword that disguises, or describe their abilities with different wording or use jargon difficult to interpret by an average sourcer. This makes it challenging for recruiters to uncover their genuine abilities, qualifications, and personalities.

Recruiters need not wield Boolean strings like ancient spells; instead, they can focus on defining the candidate qualities they seek.

The Natural Language Processing (NLP) performed by AI will be able to decipher and uncover semantic similarities in different wording and keywords utilisation. Synonyms and semantic groups of words used in Resumes and CVs are no longer a problem.
It sounds like magic.

It does so by commencing its spell from the very requirements contained within the job description, like an incantation spoken in a dark, moonlit forest. This wizardry is included in a software tool like
