These algorithms could be getting between you and your next job

Mona Sloane, member of NYU Tandon’s Center for Responsible AI, explained ways to overcome AI hiring bias. Suggestions include submitting a simplified version of your résumé, with straightforward design and text, so an AI can interpret it accurately, as well as making yourself as a candidate look as productive as possible, like continuing your education or picking up microcredentials.

“Right now, candidates don’t have knowledge and they don’t have recourse. And the thing is that recruiters don’t even know why certain candidates are on page one of the ranking, or why certain people are on page ten of the ranking when they search for candidates,” commented Sloane, “So there is just a whole lot of transparency around this that has delayed developing mechanisms for the recourse.”
