Employers will lose both fronts in my view whether they rely on a human talent software or on a real human to review job applications. Human Resources should do a better job in establishing the core requirements for each position that is advertised. These core requirements must be job-specific to help candidates decide if they want to apply or not. Within each position description, there are essential duties and non-essential duties. Essential duties matter as they will help with recruitment of the right candidates for the right position. Essential duties, position descriptions, job announcements all are interconnected.
