QJumpers launches new AI candidate search software
September 14, 2021 – The demand for data-driven and machine-learning AI specialists is growing exponentially internationally and the search for top talent is increasing, according to executive recruiters. QJumpers, a provider of sourcing and recruiting software, has launched its latest product, AI Talent Sourcing. The tool scours publicly available information and uses artificial intelligence to find, rank and hire qualified and passive candidates. AI Talent Sourcing is an offshoot of another product launched two years ago that has been integrated with the QJumpers Applicant Tracking System (ATS). Due to customer demand, QJumpers released a new and improved version which can be used independently of ATS.
Executive recruiters can either paste a job description into the tool and let the AI generate its own candidate search specification, or create their own. AI Talent Sourcing then presents a list of candidates ranked according to their match with these search criteria. Candidate profiles are created by combining information from publicly available data, such as networking sites, social media, corporate websites and blogs, according to QJumpers. Results can be further refined by specifying preferences such as location, skills, education, and years of experience. It can also be used for diversity hiring.

“By separating AI Talent Sourcing into its own product and creating additional enhancements, we are now able to sell into markets we previously couldn’t access, such as recruiting agencies and corporate clients all over the world. ” said Simon Oldham, co-founder of QJumpers. “With low immigration and low unemployment rates, the competition for talent is really tight. You need a big brand or a big portfolio to attract talent. AI Talent Sourcing means that any business can access the best talent – it’s just a matter of how well you can tell your story to convince someone to join your team.
The rise of AI and how it serves executive search
Artificial intelligence, in particular, appears to be at the center of many industries. “AI enables a machine to reproduce cognitive abilities found in humans to make tasks easier, more efficient and more efficient,” said The Taplow Group. “We agree that it has transformed the manufacturing, medical, retail and many other sectors, but what about areas that require extensive human intervention like consulting, law or recruitment ? “
AI can help executive search services, but it can never replace executive search consultants, The Taplow Group said. Executive search relates to senior executives, senior executives or positions that determine the strategic missions of organizations. “In many cases, even CVs are not taken into account and face-to-face interviews are scheduled,” the report says. “Human interaction is essential for the search for executives and it is the human spirit that would probe beyond roles, titles and skills. It is the human spirit that would determine the cultural and organizational fit. Executive Search Consultants have in-depth knowledge of industry trends, current challenges and opportunities, and this knowledge combined with experience would help find the best talent for the highest leadership positions in the organization.
“Thus, artificial intelligence would undoubtedly make the job of an executive recruiting consultant easier, but could never replace the human factor in these services,” the Taplow Group report said. “The human factor would always remain the most crucial element in the research process. It is the contributions and analysis that help a consultant. You would still need an expert to interpret trends and find the best suited talent for the organization.
