“Its All Recruiting with Jim Stroud” Has Returned with Jeff Amster #podcast

My show – “Its All Recruiting” has been on hiatus for some time but, has now returned due. In this episode, I had a great chat with my special guest – Jeff Amster, Founder of Firstscreen.  Time flew by as we discussed several things; among them:

  • Are AI robots going to take over my recruiting job?
  • Challenges with video hiring solutions (creepy / introducing bias)?
  • Challenges with technical coding solutions for technical roles
  • Current industry headaches in the top of talent pipeline?
  • Résumé review headaches
  • Time wasted on initial phone interview screens
  • Lack of time to identify larger & more diverse candidate pools
  • Candidate engagement issues

ABOUT MY GUEST

Jeff AmsterWith over 18 years of experience in recruiting for product, program and technical teams, Jeff Amster understood first-hand that resume reviews and initial phone screens had become an extreme pain point for talent acquisition professionals, hiring managers and candidates, and it was time for the industry to take part in re-imagining the recruiting model to alleviate collective frustration. Earlier this year, Jeff unveiled his next-generation, artificial intelligence powered HR platform helping to revolutionize organization talent acquisition recruiting processes by empowering candidates to self-serve their initial phone screen interviews while surfacing True Talent candidates. He plans to usher in a new age of talent matching with the commitment to leading edge AI technologies coupled with extremely user-friendly experiences.
