Matching Jobs and Resumes: a Deep Collaborative Filtering Task

14 pagesPublished: September 29, 2016


This paper tackles the automatic matching of job seekers and recruiters, based on the logs of a recruitment agency (CVs, job announcements and application clicks). Preliminary experiments reveal that good recommendation performances in collaborative filtering mode (emitting recommendations for a known recruiter using the click history) co-exist with poor performances in cold start mode (emitting recommendations based on the job announcement only). A tentative interpretation for these results is proposed, claiming that job seekers and recruiters $-$ whose mother tongue is French $-$ yet do not speak the same language. As first contribution, this paper shows that the information inferred from their interactions differs from the information contained in the CVs and job announcements.
The second contribution is the hybrid system \XX (MAtching JObs and REsumes), where a deep neural net is trained to match the collaborative filtering representation properties. The experimental validation demonstrates \XX merits, with good matching performances in cold start mode.
