Currently the removing complaints from Google company has been seeking a new candidate for their SEO and content team and they heard that Unilever’s having a ‘radical hiring experiment’ where they are replacing their resumes with algorithms and abandoning traditional recruiting according to the Wall Street Journal. The company is currently using technology to draw and sort through diverse candidates for early-career roles. They have hired more than 450 global positions this way since last autumn.

This unique Unilever’s hiring experience is a pretty cool thing since resumes are out and algorithms are in. in order to be able to diverse its candidate pool, the company has been relying on software in order to sort applicants and target the potential hires on their smartphones. The reason that one 21 year old Ms. Jaffer had found herself in front of a hiring manager was due to a series of algorithms that recommended her after she played a set on online names and submitted videos of herself responding to questions about how shed tackle challenges of the job. This radical hiring experience is under way at the London based maker of Dove soap and Axe deodorant in order to once again be able to diversify its candidate pool for early-career roles that are a fast track to management. Unilever has ditched all resumes and all traditional campus recruiting. They are targeting these young potential hires where they spend too much of their time, on their smartphones.

This experiment provides a glimpse for everyone of our tech-fueled future of recruiting in which humans writ job descriptions and make the final decisions, but software and algorithms do the rest.
