Artificial Intelligence programs for hiring has boomed in recent years and certainly has proven to be a valuable resource in matching individuals to positions. It is a concept that entails keyword capture based on a snapshot of a person's soft skills (communication style, problem-solving, organization, decision making) to relevant hard skills (teachable skills such as computer program capability, job specific tasks, etc.). It then identifies a match to keywords of the job description and can be customized to include company culture and team environment. The issues that have surfaced from such a tool are slowly coming to the surface. The main problem is that the programs are heavily reliant on keywords which are populated by people who may not be savvy in the evolution of AI and are not clued into what words should be incorporated into their resumes. AI cannot find what is not there. The following articles outline more pros and cons of using AI in hiring.
Bohan & Bradstreet has found that our clients find more value in working directly with veteran professional recruiting firms because of the human connection that naturally occurs on both sides of the hiring process. B&B spends time getting to know the whole of the company, the department structures, the fit within the industry, the long term goals, and where new talent can add value. B&B spends time sourcing candidates and getting to know each one through a series of calls to determine what in their career history makes them right for the next step and where they see themselves long term. The entire approach is designed to bring humans together in an organic way and ultimately ensures a more sustainable relationship.

The B&B team has recently received some feedback regarding our process:
"It was a pleasure working with Bohan & Bradstreet. They are highly professional, provided good insights into the employer, their needs and their culture and made sure that my background was a good fit. Ed Bradstreet took the time to get to know me, communicated on a regular basis and provided valuable interview preparation and follow-up guidance. B&B’s clear understanding of the needs and expectations of both the company’s and the candidates they represent set them apart and resulted in a very positive experience for me"
"Tami at Bohan & Bradstreet is the most helpful recruiter I have ever worked with. In our conversations I never felt like I was being rushed off the phone like with other recruiters, and she actively listened to the answers I gave to her questions. Using that information, she selected companies that matched my values as an employee and a person for me to interview at, and provided me with helpful insights into those companies so that I could perform well in the interviews. I would highly recommend Tami and Bohan & Bradstreet to anyone looking to make a job change."
