Amazon recently narrowed down the list of cities in the running for its second headquarters from more than 200 applicants to just 20 finalists. Unsurprisingly, 9 of the 10 largest metro regions in America remain in the running, while the other 11 finalists range from mid-sized cities with burgeoning tech scenes (Denver, Columbus, Pittsburgh, Raleigh, Miami) to smaller cities and areas just outside of major cities that still offer many of the same amenities and talent pools as their central metropoles (Newark, New Jersey, Northern Virginia, Montgomery County, Maryland).
2017 was a big year at Entelo. We raised a Series C funding round, announced and launched an innovative new product called Entelo Envoy and made some amazing new hires.

But enough about our favorites. Here are the ten Entelo posts you read the most last year.

The adoption of artificial intelligence for recruiting is happening faster than you may think. Over the next few years, the impact of smart technologies will continue to grow, with recent research from IDC indicating that 67% of organizations plan to adopt AI over the next 5 years. This is no surprise considering many companies have already adopted AI and machine learning to increase productivity, automate business processes and uncover new business insights.
Now, everyone else is following suit, with recruiting and talent acquisition poised to join the AI revolution. With the unemployment rate near record lows and the talent crunch deepening for many key professions, this move will give talent acquisition teams the resources and technology they need to find and hire the best possible talent in a crowded and competitive job market.
