40% of job descriptions with the exact same skill requirements have completely different titles. This is according to research done by Duke Professor Sharique Hasan and is what he dubs the ‘language gap’ in hiring.
As a part of the industry responsible for machine learning, AI, and the ‘cloud’, it’s not at all surprising that tech recruiters are early adopters. Back in the heyday of job boards and ‘post-’n-pray’, tech recruiters shifted their focus towards passive candidates. And now, as most companies practice passive sourcing in some shape or form, the most successful tech recruiters rely on intelligent tools to give them a competitive edge.

For many of us, January is more than the just the start of a new year. It’s a clean slate to set new intentions and a chance to recommit to old ones. It’s no surprise then that January typically sees an almost 20% increase in gym memberships.
It may be the start of a new year, but for those of us welcomed back to the office today by overflowing email inboxes and back-to back meetings– work may already feel a little old.
