When it comes to relaying the chronological story of a person’s employment history, CVs can be useful. Yet, because they only provide a static view of each candidate, they often fail at accurately showcasing the diversity of skills a candidate truly possesses.
So, why are so many of us still relying on this two-dimensional view of a candidate? Fortunately, PitchMe has developed a smarter solution: the SmartMe™ profile.
PitchMe’s SmartMe™ profile provides an innovative solution for candidates and employers to overcome the limitations of the traditional CV by providing a holistic view of each candidate.
PitchMe applies sophisticated data science and AI-driven machine learning technology to develop a multi-layered view of a candidate’s skills by combining traditional sources, such as a CV, with a candidate’s digital data — which can include personal or business websites, social profiles, blogs, online games and more.
A candidate’s SmartMe™ profile provides employers and HR professionals with a more comprehensive insight into each candidate, making the hiring process more intelligent and efficient.
How does SmartMe work?
SmartMe™ takes a data-driven approach to candidate profiling by using AI and machine learning to build the most complete, real-time, dynamic profile of each candidate. This helps employers go beyond the CV and see the candidate’s full potential.
It’s easy to get started. A candidate simply creates a unique SmartMe™ profile by uploading their CV and linking any relevant online profiles of their choosing to build their smart profile.
PitchMe is integrated with over 30 sources, including LinkedIn, Facebook, GitHub, and Wordpress. We collect big data in various formats, including texts, images, videos and code elements, and convert them into measured and validated skills using our proprietary methodology. This allows candidates to link the social profiles that build a multi layered view of their professional profile, highlighting both their hard and soft skills.
Through the use of sophisticated AI-driven technology to combine traditional and digital data, a user’s SmartMe™ profile provides a comprehensive overview of the candidate’s full range of skills, talents, and attributes.
This means that each SmartMe™ profile includes not only hard skills but also the soft skills that are crucial to making the right hiring decisions.
Here’s what this means
How are SmartMe profiles used?
Once complete, your SmartMe™ profile will be anonymously matched with positions listed by verified employers on PitchMe’s website. You can choose to make your SmartMe™ profile public, or visible only to PitchMe users.
With SmartMe™, your anonymous profile reveals a complete set of your talents and skills, avoiding unconscious bias.
SmartMe™ profiles can also be downloaded or shared externally on your personal website, blog, GitHub, or LinkedIn profile.
Using its technology-driven approach, SmartMe™ also provides each candidate handy tips about how you can uplevel your skills to today’s most in-demand skill sets through additional training courses relevant to each industry.
With SmartMe™, you’re more than just a CV.
Our sophisticated matching system is based upon a machine learning algorithm that has reviewed more than two million job descriptions — and continues to learn with every new case.
Thanks to its powerful technology, SmartMe™ matches the most suitable candidates for your job.
Did you know that psychometric tests are typically only conducted around the second or third stages of hiring?
This means that while, on paper, a candidate’s hard skills may appear to be the right fit, the full picture of what the candidate brings to the table, including soft skills, isn’t well represented.
SmartMe™ helps employers save time shortlisting candidates by going beyond simply reading CVs to presenting a full spectrum of skills and knowledge.
By providing a holistic, dynamic view of the candidate, SmartMe™ allows companies to make more intelligent and efficient hiring decisions.
How to read a SmartMe profile
While the technology behind SmartMe™ is highly sophisticated, interpreting each profile is simple and takes just a few straightforward steps:
Hard skills which are measured and verified using the principles of data triangulation.
Soft skills and personality profile, both of which are measured and rooted in behavioural science so that they provide useful insight into the candidate’s ideal work environment.
And that’s it! All of the fully-vetted information provided at first-stage interviews — plus second or even third-stage psychometric testing — is at your fingertips, allowing you to make a smart, well-informed hiring decision.
SmartMe™ helps foster employers’ need for increased diversity and inclusion in the hiring process by working to ensure equal opportunities for all candidates.
Because SmartMe™ profiles are shared with employers anonymously, this helps eliminate unconscious bias, allowing employers to truly hire candidates who are the right fit, without bias against race, ethnicity, gender, or age.
