In the job market, your resume has always competed against everyone else’s. The usual process goes something like this. A company posts a job online. Depending on the company and the job, hundreds apply, maybe thousands. The advertisement lists an email or an online link. If an email, you simply email your resume with or without a separate cover letter. If online, you upload your resume then confirm the content through guided, progressive screens. You submit. You wait. And wait.
Often you don’t wait long. You receive a response via email thanking you for your submission. Very politely they will say no thank you. Sometimes it takes longer, weeks or even a month or two. But same result. Occasionally, you are the lucky one and get a call.
What you may not know is, behind the curtain, data science has revolutionized this process. And depending on the outcomes mentioned above, this is either good news or bad news. If you received the call, it is good news, data science has worked for you. If you received the polite email, it did not.
Because you are reading this sentence, you’re in luck. It’s time you leverage data science to your advantage and get the call for a job interview. I’ll show you how.
