Great Article – “The Business Of Artificial Intelligence” by Erik Brynjolfsson & Andrew Mcafee

Tags : 

The Business Of Artificial Intelligence – What it can — and cannot — do for your organization 

(for the full article go to https://hbr.org/cover-story/2017/07/the-business-of-artificial-intelligence

 

“For more than 250 years the fundamental drivers of economic growth have been technological innovations. The most important of these are what economists call general-purpose technologies — a category that includes the steam engine, electricity, and the internal combustion engine. Each one catalyzed waves of complementary innovations and opportunities. The internal combustion engine, for example, gave rise to cars, trucks, airplanes, chain saws, and lawnmowers, along with big-box retailers, shopping centers, cross-docking warehouses, new supply chains, and, when you think about it, suburbs. Companies as diverse as Walmart, UPS, and Uber found ways to leverage the technology to create profitable new business models.

The most important general-purpose technology of our era is artificial intelligence, particularly machine learning (ML) — that is, the machine’s ability to keep improving its performance without humans having to explain exactly how to accomplish all the tasks it’s given. Within just the past few years machine learning has become far more effective and widely available. We can now build systems that learn how to perform tasks on their own.”

Employment and background checking and screening

What do you think – Background Screening…

Tags : 

#whatdoyouthink

 “It’s true, background screening is complex. Deciding which type of check to run to make sure a candidate is the right one can seem like a daunting task. However, background screening is a vital step to ensure the right people are in the right roles. From employment verification to criminal record checks, it’s a proactive way to add a layer of risk mitigation into a company’s hiring process.”

 

My question is – how much further do we go with this to provide companies with as thorough a screening process as possible. I’ve been getting differing opinions with respect to trolling through social media – adding on psychometric assessments (in addition to the face to face screening etc.). Would love to hear others’ opinions.

 

I’m of the mindset that we should go as thorough as possible within our means – and that too can change depending on the position the person is being hired for.

Job Interview Tips and Techniques…by the Recruiter

Tags : 

Judith Mallard President of Recruiting Now Inc.

This is a Quick Tip list for that very important upcoming interview that you really want to ace. What I have not included in this list – please read my post on “What not to do” at an interview:

  • When you are asked if you have a particular skill – always try to give a real work example of when you had to use that skill. Whatever you do – don’t make it up. It’s quite ok to say “I haven’t had experience in that particular area but here is how I would handle it”. Keep in mind if the Interviewer does feel that you may not have experience in that area or that you may not have answered truthfully – they will work the questioning back again to address the area of expertise they are looking for.
  • Another very important point to keep in mind is that you are not at an interview to see if the person across from you is going to be your new “best friend”. By this I mean – Keep your interview on a business level at all times. This does not mean you have to be “too” formal. Instead try to engage the Interviewer. This can be done through positive body language – such as an occasional smile and nod – and making sure that you portray the energy level of someone who truly wants to be at the interview in question. Let the interviewer “feel” that you appreciate the time and opportunity they may be giving you. Even if – half way through the interview you discover “to yourself of course” that the job is not a fit for you, then take advantage of the opportunity to practice your interview skills – never just throw an interview. Walk in with your head held high and walk out the same way, knowing that you gave it all you could and in the best way that you could.
  • Of course all Interviewers, myself included – want to see all potential candidates and applicants show their confidence in their own capabilities and areas of expertise. However, keep in mind arrogance is not the same as confidence. You are there at the interview to show what you can do and how you believe you are a good fit for a particular role. This is an amazing opportunity where you are given time to basically “strut your stuff” and sell yourself in a positive and professional manner. It is not something you should take lightly. As I mentioned previously, use the opportunity wisely, even if it is just for practice.

Please do stay tuned for other tips and techniques that we will bring your way. If you have any questions about navigating through the waters of looking for that perfect job or launching a new career, please do send us a quick email and we will try to post it live so that others can also benefit from your queries.

Have yourself a great day!

Be cyberaware for fake job postings and fake employment offers

CYBER SCAM ALERT

Tags : 

BE CYBER AWARE!

It has been brought to my attention that there are scammers targeting those who may have posted their resumes online to the various job portals and who are actively seeking new employment opportunities.

I had heard about this previously when another recruiting agency had posted a similar bulletin – however this time they have decided to pretend to be me.

 

I am attaching a sample of the generic email to this bulletin that these scammers are promoting for nefarious intent and purposes. (PLEASE SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS ARTICLE)

I wanted to send out this bulletin and request that you repost, share and pass it along to everyone you know. This affects all of us.

 

If you continue responding to them – they even go as far as sending you a Labour Agreement with a Bogus Employer signature and requesting that you give them a signature. And they are getting sneakier and cleverer – even going to the degree of making sure that the bogus employer signature matches a profile that is applicable to the industry that the applicant is applying for.

 

There are other Warning Red Flags, such as:

  1. Asking that you only contact them through email – this is a major red flag
  2. Email Address – Verify that the email address that they are contacting you with matches the domain of the URL that they are saying is the company contacting you. In the sample I have attached – you can clearly seeing the company is at recrutingnow.ca yet the email address is hr.manager@recruitingnow.info – that’s your second red flag.
  3. Most importantly, our recruitment process does not allow any of our recruiters to send out a job offer or labour agreement via email if you haven’t had an interview with both the recruitment agency and the client who would be hiring you. We also would have requested a full BackGround Check at the same time and all of our Background checks are officially carried out through Sterling Talent Solutions. Even if location or timing is an issue – then a face to face would be carried out via Skype interview – but I can assure you we would never send out a job offer without going through a strict screening process that far extends past email only communication.
    To have one email sent to you – followed up by a job offer – is a major red flag to watch out for. When in doubt, call or email the agency – AND do the research that I have mentioned in this bulletin.

This scam and fraudulent behaviour was brought to my attention by some very smart and diligent recent university graduates. Scammers beware – these future generations are very smart, so do not take them for granted. And as recruiters – we also take our roles very seriously in promoting and encouraging those individuals who are seeing new career opportunities and not by taking advantage of them.

 

To say I am feeling angry right now is putting it mildly – but we too can use the internet to bring attention to what YOU are doing.  Education is the key – and being aware and spreading the word is how we do it together. The internet is not a bad thing – it’s just there are some bad people using it.
