Just like smartphones have transformed the way we communicate these days, Hiretual has revolutionized the way companies source and recruit candidates with AI-powered technology.
Many recruiters still separate the idea of AI sourcing as something completely different from a Boolean search. But actually, AI search can be simply understood as an "advanced Boolean search" from the backend logic. The AI technologies are embedded in the searches to expand the keywords and domain, while it's heavily used in the match and evaluation steps to make the candidate sourcing results even more accurate.
How Does the AI Expand My Search and Why Does it Matter?
Many job titles can be interpreted in a variety of ways, and no single job title can represent all the talents you are looking for. For example, "Solution Architect" and "Solutions Architect" are just one letter away while all pointing to the same talent pool. This is where AI sourcing comes into place.
Hiretual uses technology that's very similar to Google's search engine, which means it understands everything that you typed in, including context and meaning, and goes beyond that keyword to find similar words, even though not necessarily in the exact same match.
This gives you a quicker and way more comprehensive way to search, match, and rank your potential candidates.
Do I Have the Option to Search by Boolean in AI Sourcing?
The answer is Yes!
In the Start with Boolean String tab, you can add your boolean keywords in addition to the AI sourcing keywords, if you wish to enhance the accuracy of your talent pool.
Copy and paste your Boolean string in the textbox or create one using our Boolean Builder link below.
Click on Show additional requirements and you will find filters for mandatory and preferred skills.
When you finish editing, remember to Generate Boolean before you start the search.
After clicking on Search, your Boolean will go straight to the Keywords box on the left-hand bottom side of the page. You can also type in your Boolean search into the Keywords section.
Despite the limit of Boolean searches by AND, OR, NOT operators, once the keywords are added to the AI sourcing page, Hiretual enhanced a layer of contextual and Natural Language Processing to your search that makes the talent pool expand in an effective manner.
Boolean Builder as a Separate Search Option
Hiretual also provides a separate feature specifically for the Boolean Builder, which gives you more options to build custom boolean searches. You can locate it on the left-hand side menu under the Home page.
You will find 2 options for you to create a Boolean: Quick Mode and JD Mode. Read here[how to build a boolean string] for more detail. Likewise, you are able to expand the filters to specify your requirements.
So, AI Sourcing or Boolean?
If you are still wondering why we don’t answer this question with a simple option, it's because there is not an “either/or” in this equation.
Keep in mind that today’s millennials will be tomorrow's traditionalists. In this Artificial Intelligence era, the best way to deal with change is adapting, to new ways of doing things.
