Title: Candidates Rediscovery through Job Requisitions Matching - A Data Science POC at Workday

Abstract:
This talk aims to walk the audience through a Data Science prototyping pipeline developed at Workday for the Candidates Rediscovery use case. Talent sourcing is a time-consuming and often futile process for many recruiters. The pipeline addresses this pain point by surfaces selected, active candidates who applied for past similar job openings. Algorithms include TF-IDF, Doc2Vec, and Shingling. The audience will also get a glimpse into Workday's Machine Learning standard operating procedure from ideation to productization.
