Instead of submitting a full resume, job postings should be structured so candidates can address each requirement line by line with their applicable skill, work experience, proficiency and/or education.
This way, applicants can easily show how their experience and skills make them a worthwhile candidate.
It’s foreseeable that in the future, companies will start to use recruitment apps which use natural language processing that will be able to easily map resumes to job postings.
The candidate would then need to agree with or confirm the mapping. The confirmation process will help the app’s continual improvement (via machine learning).
Of course, this would be just the beginning of the recruitment workflow and interviews will still be necessary.
