As a math major, I’ve always been a fan of numbers, data and patterns. As an HR and talent acquisition practitioner, it’s been frustrating to hear the terms ‘big data’ and ‘artificial intelligence (ai)’ thrown around so loosely.

Experienced recruiters and hiring managers recognize that matching keywords on resumes or social profiles, with that of job description, is short-sighted. Many companies also recognize this widens the gap, in terms of diversity and inclusion, by screening for buzzwords and shiny school and employer logos. Hiring teams today know it’s more than a skill set or a degree that make great hires for any given role, team or company.

Regardless of the source of candidates – from referrals, applicants, outbound sourcing, or employer branding – it’s our actual conversations with candidates that contain the richest content and most important data available. It’s also the case that we only know talent when we hear it. A thirty minute phone interview contains stories, examples, explanations, and situation-based Q&A. This interview content goes deeper than resumes, cover letters or write-ups. The problem is that all of this interview content and data contained in our conversations, walk out the door every day, and even worse.. only one person heard it.

Voice-first interview technology captures real-time interview data to help hiring teams make better decisions, faster. Instead of sharing scribbled notes, gut reactions and subjective opinions, Honeit interview technology enables companies to capture, search and analyze a completely new layer of interview intelligence, for data-driven hiring decisions.
