Interest in and the adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the talent acquisition space has skyrocketed since 2015. During this episode of Science-4 Hire, Dr. Charles Handler seeks to learn more about how AI-based hiring platforms work- with a specific focus on job matching. Eightfold.AI is doing just that, and much more in pursuit of the company’s core mission to find the right career for everyone in the world. Mihir Ghandi, VP of Strategic Marketing for Eightfold.AI, discusses how AI is being used to match often not-so-obvious skills of applicants’ to open positions with companies worldwide. Mihir provides insight into how Eightfold’s technology identifies corollary skills that may not have fit on the traditional, single-page resume. In tandem with skills definition, Eightfold’s AI is creating calibration profiles for hiring managers to use, making it more effective for them to identify information beyond the core skills outlined within job descriptions.While the discussion goes deep into data and the use of it, there is also discussion around the role of the humans involved. How data is adjusted based on hiring manager feedback, changes to job descriptions, the evolution of skills, and candidates’ stories.The evolution of candidate skills along with the changing needs of organizations is of particular interest as a result of the current job market and the impact of COVID-19. The pair dive into the importance of candidates’ fluidity and need to reskill, or as Dr. Handler refers to it “self-skill", in an effort to expand their opportunities. The use of AI to identify the correlation of skills required for certain positions but that are not explicitly outlined could not come at a better time for TAs and job seekers. Gandhi offers the recently released Talent Exchange, a partnership with McKinsey & Company, which provides companies and individuals free access to this powerful technology. Using their tech to help match those most in need ties directly back into their mission, and democratizes the technology.Science4Hire is brought to you by Rocket-Hire - your partner for launching successful talent assessment strategies and solutions.

What if a simple email to set up your listing presentation could totally swing the odds of winning the listing in your favor? I was on a call with Bestagents member Kim Turner this morning. Kim and I were workshopping some ideas and I shared something that has been very effective for a number of agents in my private client group. In fact, I would say it has the power to supercharge your chances of winning more listings at presentation? And it must be a secret because nobody eyes is doing it! :-) I’m also going to suggest this is a drop-everything-and do-right-now kind of thing! In a sec I’ll give you a Pre-Listing email that’s killing it right now for one very specific reason... Your potential selling client gets to see your testimonials! …PLUS I have a special kicker that will take your ‘authority’ through the roof. Here’s the thing: Most agents don’t give potential selling clients their testimonials until AFTER the Presentation.
