rsonal interaction out of the process. That followed by an automatic response further depersonalizes the interaction.
Do I want to go back to the stone age absolutely not. But I am not sure that more technology can fix the problem that technology has created in the first place.
I am however getting a bit bored with all the screaming about "the candidate" experience" when I get 100 resumes with no cover letter, no indication of salary requirements, no dates on jobs prior to 1998, no indication of why that candidate wants to make a change or why they left their last job. Yes, it is my job to get that information but it seems to me that if candidates were a bit more personally involved with applying for a position they might receive a bit more of a personal response from recruiters and HR within the company.
How did it come to be that candidates see a posting, push a button with no other personal information then spend hours posting and bitching about their "candidate experience". I postulate that the ones who make some small effort are not the ones who are making all the noise about their experience. Elephant trainers are always interested in working with elephants who show some interest rather than walking through the room leaving a deposit then demanding attention for the deposit.
Perhaps it all boils down to the old saying. "I shot an arrow into the air.". "it came to earth I know not where."
"screw it, got lots of arrows"…
eparser.com. The site allows resume parsing, performing criterion based Boolean search on parameters like key word, current company, designation, qualification and location etc and taking export dump in excel sheet of parsed candidate information directly from the website.

One thing that is an automatic "Drop" indicator: Talking money at the beginning of the conversation. If they immediately ask the rate without hearing the opportunity, I know that I've got a loser who will jump ship as soon as someone else offers him another 3% salary. I've fought with my bosses about the guys who only care about money more than once. They never work out.…
