"For the human resources industry, AI will make finding talent less time consuming and a much smoother process for both candidate and hirer. However, it’s almost a foregone conclusion that this will result in the loss of certain jobs, such as ‘resourcers’ and the need for the vast number of ‘recruitment consultants’ positions that exist today. AI will enable hirers to find the right person, manage their hiring process and deliver a suitable candidate to the company at a fraction of the cost."Read More
"Blockchain technology is versatile and provides a level of trust, efficiency and security that our current centralized systems simply cannot compete with. In the future, everything from ordering takeout to making travel plans will be processed through blockchain. It removes middlemen from the equation, increasing the margin for the end supplier and provide a seamless service end-to-end for consumers. Technology businesses built on blockchain will become a prominent part of the small-to-medium-sized enterprises we’ll know and trust in the future."Read More
6. Don't over-exaggerate your passions or interests in an interview.
"What I mean by this is people try and make themselves seem more exciting, so they can sometimes oversell some things or even tell little white lies within very basic parts of their lives. For example, candidates may state that they are a keen cyclist, love playing chess, or have completed cooking courses as side parts about themselves, to make them seem more interesting. But then maybe it just so happens that the person who's interviewing you is a grandmaster at chess, or maybe appeared on Master Chef. And then what? Honesty is just as important in questions about hobbies as it is about work experience. Getting caught in a lie devalues the interview and a person's credibility. I remember interviewing someone years ago who claimed to be an avid track race driver, which it turns out I also happen to be. So, when I questioned him about where he did it, when he achieved his racing license, and the different competitions he may have entered, his story completely fell apart. For me, if you are willing to lie about that, what else may you be willing to lie about within your skills, achievements, and experience?"
