The Case Against Screening with Resumes

Screening candidates using the resume is a procedure that 99% of businesses today use -- and for no good reason. Even Google readily admits in their guide to reviewing resumes that they are an "imperfect means for reviewing talent." 

 Research from the University of Chicago suggests that using resumes to screen talent can lead to a candidate's name, addresses, and schools negatively affecting how hiring managers review talent, causing them to miss out on key individuals.

 The added pressure of the amount of time it takes to carefully review resumes, with dozens of other things on a hiring manager's plate, lead to even more bias and ill-informed decision making.

 Employers use shortcuts, like using gaps in employment history to screen out otherwise qualified candidates. Keyword searches only identify resumes that happen to use keywords, not qualified candidates. 

 All of this occurs at the most important stage of the hiring process, after your target candidate has expressed interest in the position.

Research also indicates that the shortcuts used when screening resumes lead employers to unfairly disqualify candidates who would otherwise be a great fit for the job. This leads to missed opportunities for employees and employers alike.

So what can you do? 

At NewHire, we suggest a different approach -- one that does not rely on the resume as a screening tool at all. Employers identify the key criteria they are looking for in a potential new hire, and they create questions that every candidates answers during the application process. 

From there, an employer searches through the candidate pool based on answers to their key questions. See what we mean here:
