How to get your first HR job!

It’s graduation season which means I get a ton of messages from new HR grads asking for advice. I heard from someone at SHRM that there are currently 8,000 human resource’s university programs in the world currently. Doesn’t that seem like a huge number?

T3 – Karen.ai – Cognitive Recruiting Assistant

This week on T3 I review the new recruiting artificial intelligence called Karen. Karen.ai provides candidate screening and candidate conversation service to improve brand interactions and improve your organization’s talent. You’ve probably heard this technology called a chatbot. That simplifies the concept, but it also misses the mark on what technology like Karen actually does. […]
