A Neural Information Retrieval Approach for Résumé Searching in a Recruitment Agency

Brandon Grech, David Suda

Abstract

Finding résumés that match a job description can be a daunting task for a recruitment agency, due to the fact that these agencies are dealing with hundreds of job descriptions and tens of thousands of résumés simultaneously. In this paper we explain a search method devised for a recruitment agency by measuring similarity between résumé documents and job description documents. Document vectors are obtained via TF-IDF weights from word embeddings arising from a neural language model with a skip-gram loss function. We show that, with this approach, successful searches can be achieved, and that the number of skips assumed in the skip gram loss function determines how successful it can be for different job descriptions.
