Dear Members and Friends

You will recall my views about recruitment practices in general in Singapore. To recap, they are too often sub-par, lazy, because companies and recruiters rely on job titles to filter applications, inefficient, overly subjective and ageist.

They are also costly because current practices often result in hiring the wrong person. They are also costly because of inefficient, multiple rounds of interviews for no real corporate gain. More time and money are lost as a result of a particular evil prevalent in our job market. This is the oft heard horror story where employers advertise, interview and hire for one job but then expect the new hire to do an entirely different job on day 1 of their employment with the company. To say recruitment practices need a reboot is a very big understatement indeed.

Candidates should be assessed on their character, competencies, skills and potential and nothing else. It is refreshing to come across a platform that helps move recruitment towards achieving these beneficial goals. Your fellow member X0PA is an AI enabled recruitment platform for employers and job seekers which aims to inject more objectivity in recruitment for all. Check it out

Yours faithfully
