Staff It Now Creates Unique Artificial Intelligence Program To Enable Technology-Based Employers And Candidates Find Each Other

Staff It Now, an innovative job sourcing and job marketing solution, has created an unique artificial intelligence program. This program, when combined with blogging and other Web 2.0 developments, will enable technology-based employers and better qualified candidates to effectively find each other.

The technology is named Odin after the chief god in Norse mythology. Odin was god of the hunt, and this intelligent matching was created specifically to improve the job recruitment process for both the recruiter and the job hunter. Odin provides more advanced searching. Where as current technology uses keywords, Odin uses an advanced language processing mode to actually read the employers’ requirements and the candidates’ resumes, just as a person would.

Odin differentiates between primary and secondary skills, sifts and picks relevant data and then matches the candidates to requirements. Odin then ranks the results from most suited and presents it in a single-screen, user-friendly automated dashboard. This results in an accurate match for both employer and job seeker.

The creator of Odin, Naveen Bala, has over ten years of experience architecting intelligent decision support systems. He has worked with data optimization for IBM, T.J. Watson Research Center, i2 and Forest Products. The Staff It Now team also includes co-founder and Operations Manager Siva Ramamurthy (formerly of Intellisys, State Farm, Applied Materials and Workscape) and J. Carl Williams III, Chief Marketing Executive.
