Killing the Resume
Jacob Hsu, Catalyte
There was a time when meaningful employment didn't require a resume. Factory workers across America could raise families based on competency in the skills required to do their jobs. Adapt this mindset from blue collar to white collar work, and we open a world of employment possibilities to underserved job seekers and an entirely new talent pool for employers. In this talk Catalyte CEO Jacob Hsu will show that with the emergence of artificial intelligence and advanced analytics capabilities, companies can now use AI and big data models to overhaul today's hiring models, increase diversity and create a new middle class for the knowledge economy. We can shrink the talent gap by finding great developers from non-traditional backgrounds, minimizing the importance of pedigree and privilege and democratizing economic opportunity for all Americans.
