The American economy can only improve with a great workforce, and Marketplace’s Chris Farrell is worried that tech-driven hiring systems aren’t helping in the way they should.
“You have managements wandering around saying, ‘We have this huge need for skilled workers and we can’t find them,’” Farrell says. “And my answer is, ‘Your algorithms are screening them out.’”
While Farrell fears such procedures weed out creative applicants, he says they can be successful when utilized as a supplement to the hiring process.
“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VABEFORE YOU GO
