Today Laurel & Yanny are working with the search output, the process is 3-step. They filter, sort and screen candidates. Let’s see how they’ve managed.

Using search filters

To choose among the most relevant candidates Laurel & Yanny filter the search output.

Yanny:

Yanny Using Filters

Yanny ticked “not specified” filter positions for “Years of experience”, “Available contacts” and “Seniority level”. It will help not to lose relevant candidates whose profiles lack filter information.

*Yanny remembers that if there is no contact information in candidate’s profile, he can always use links to accounts of the candidate in social and professional communities and contact him/her there.

He excluded candidates with the manager and executive seniority levels to find strong hands-on engineers rather than C-level professionals with managerial skills and experience.

He also excluded company he works at and added company known for employing the best machine learning specialists.

Laurel Using Filters

Laurel didn’t use the “not specified” filter parameter – she narrowed the search output by excluding potentially relevant candidates whose profiles lack the needed information.

To make the search more focused Laurel should also have used the “Seniority level” and “Company” filters. This could have made the further screening process more effective as she would search among relevant candidates. 

Prospects’ Sorting

To find the machine learning stars Laurel & Yanny sort the search output. It will help to focus on finding the best specialists and the key contributors to open-source projects.

Yanny:

Yanny sorts the search output by Kaggle rating as Kagge is the world’s largest community of data scientists and machine learners.

Go, Yanny!

Laurel:

Laurel tried to do the same but forgot to add the machine learning skill to her search query!

*Only consolidated, Github and StackOverflow sorting can work with any skill – Kaggle and Google Play sorting requires including the “machine learning” and “android” skills accordingly in the search query.

Technical Screening

Yanny:

One more thing Yanny is more successful with is screening. He analyses the candidate’s short card before opening the full profile. He screens all the main information: position, company, work experience, location, education and main skills.  He also opens the comment section to monitor the comments left to the profile by him or his colleagues.

He screens profiles right from the search output – it saves time and doesn’t slow down the browser’s work.

Laurel:

Laurel opened too many full profiles and got lost among them. Her browser doesn’t respond.
