Bots for personnel selection

The Office of Personnel Management is piloting changes to the USAJobs website that makes users’ resumes searchable by hiring managers.

Called “resume mining,” the tool allows hiring managers at agencies participating in the pilot to search for keywords in resumes users have agreed to make searchable. Managers can then reach out to federal job applicants and invite them to apply for certain positions.

Management consultancies have used such techniques for years, though often via artificial intelligence / expert decision support applications (not rote searches).
