Seminar 24 June 2014.
The Search Party is a Sydney-based technology platform that is a positive disruptor for the recruitment industry. We have created the first online marketplace for talent which makes it quicker and easier to hire better people, whilst for recruitment agencies we provide a sustainable and profitable revenue stream. In this presentation I will give an overview of the various challenges that we are facing to extract value from the large amounts of data that are daily circulating in our software platform. These data originate from job seekers, employers and recruiters, and processing them requires interdisciplinary work at the intersection of statistics, machine learning, data mining, computer science, information retrieval and natural language processing. The ultimate goal is to accurately match vacancies with job seekers and automate the recruitment service.
