Recruiters ‘v’ Computers

In today’s technological age companies are always looking to make cost savings by streamlining, computerising or using portals rather than recruitment agencies. Many of the FTSE100 companies are now favouring the use of portals or web based recruitment tools.

What these tools do is look at the data on CV’s cross reference them against the job parameters and either approve or reject candidates without ever seeing or talking to them. Interestingly the people on the list below would all probably fail to reach the interview stage as they would already have been rejected as they all dropped out of school

 MARK ZUCKERBERG
RICHARD BRANSON
JAMES CAMERON
BILL GATES
DONNA KARAN
SIMON COWELL
WALT DISNEY
LARRY ELLISON – FOUNDER OF ORACLE
HENRY FORD
PAUL ALLEN (MICROSOFT CO-FOUNDER)
STEVE JOBS
MICHAEL DELL (Founder of Dell Corporation)
DAVID GEFFEN (Founder of Asylum records, Hollywoods richest man)
SHAWN FANNING (Founded Napster)

Good recruiters add value by spotting what isn’t in the CV personality, flair, drive, ambition. and that’s why we will always be better
