New recruitment tactics just keep coming…

Last issue we looked at some interesting and creative forward thinking approaches to scouting talent – now, we’ve seen the launch of what claims to be the first rules-based recruitment system, automatically matching candidates and vacancies.

Dalmatian examines skills and qualifications; comparing them to the needs of employers using a sophisticated algorithm to produce a percentage match figure. The rules engine is the heart of a comprehensive systems, consisting of an application tracking tool for employers which, crucially, is completely integrated with an app-based career management tool for candidates.

People are encouraged to load their CV on a once-only basis then keep their skills and other information regularly updated. Employers can enter details of vacancies into the system and, based on factors such as skills and qualifications processed by the rules engine, are shown a range of ‘blind’ candidate details along with the match percentage figure.
