Let’s go to the news: ZipRecruiter launched what they’re calling Job Seeker Profiles this week. In a nutshell, Profiles aims to help millions of mobile app users find a job by simplifying the resume-building process and making it easier for them to stand out to employers. Profiles allows them to fill out a summary including their skills, certifications, desired salary and career objectives. The data can be entered manually or generated automatically from an uploaded resume. Profiles also leverages Zip’s artificial intelligent to alert job seekers of missing information and suggests ways to improve content. AI looks like the name of the game at Zip. On the heels of raising $156 million at a billion dollar valuation, the company now counts 200 engineers developing their AI, including 50 working from a new Tel Aviv-based development and research center. In case you were wondering, the 8-year-old company has nearly 1,000 employees in two states and three countries. Be sure to tune into the weekly show for deeper opinion on news you hear on The Shred.
