As we walked around at Personal Hungary HR exhibition it became clear that the job market presence of Generation Y and Z is one of the most urgent matters for HR experts. Inspired by the lectures, we started our mini-series on the recruitment of the generations in focus. In the previous part, we discussed the interconnectivity of employer branding and recruitment. Partly based on the Generation Y applicant experience of our previous article, now we expand on how to make the most of the available software solutions and online platforms.
On International Women’s Day here’s a representative list of IT pioneers who transformed the field with their talent, innovation and devotion, even if they did not always receive the credit they deserved, at the time. We honor the women who created the first hypothetical and actual computing programs, spent long hours implementing them with switching wires behind the scenes, or contributed to moon landing. It is a matter of great pride and awe that a complete list such transformational professionals will be endless!
Today is National Science Day in India honoring the discovery of the Raman effect by Indian physicist Sir Chandrashekhara Venkata Raman, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1930.
This year’s focus is "Science and Technology for a sustainable future," a topic with worldwide importance (which we also touched upon in one of our articles).
Nevertheless, we would like to devote today’s infographics entirely to notable scientists of Indian origin who contributed to the advancement of Information Technology with their research and inventions. Even with narrowing down the subject to IT professionals only, the list is inherently incomplete. Our random selection contains such names as Ajay Bhatt, who never intended to make profit with his invention, USB, or some great philanthropists, such as Vinod Dham.
Parts of the lecture reinforced our belief that addressing challenges that come prior to someone joining a given workforce is as significant as the HR management that happens after. Inspired, we decided to devote a few articles to the process that paves the way to team-integration: recruitment. We discuss questions including why we need to focus on the recruitment of generations Y and Z. What kind of generation-specific aspects need to be addressed if we want to gain the attention of the new generations? What kind of tools are available to help us?
In the first part we focus on the importance of recruiting from all generations.
Thomas Edison demonstrated his phonograph for the first time on November 29, 1877. The audience perceived the invention as magic, leaving Edison with the nickname "The Wizard of Menlo Park." As sound recording gradually developed with the rise of the electrical, magnetic and finally the digital phase, technology become more and more precise and made copying and mass production easier. Each phase and invention revolutionized the music and film industry in its very own way. In the past decades technology has also learned to listen, not just to repeat: speech recognition was invented and put into commercial use. Now we can enjoy huge online databases of digital recordings, sound editing software and virtual assistants who understand almost all our words.
Take a glimpse at the past 140 years with our infographic.
Rasmus Kristian Rask was born 230 years ago. The Danish linguist and philologist is especially known for his contributions to comparative historical linguistics. Methodology has changed and evolved since his extensive research on language history and language families, but the core of his studies and theories is still considered valid today.
Now, there are modern technological inventions that can help linguistic experts map language family trees, reconstruct protolanguages and deal with “Big Data”. We prepared a list to show why software tools are essential in historical linguistics research.
While most aspects of the applicant selection process require human qualities and skills, there are some tasks in the long recruiting process where ATS performs without fatigue and can be an HR professional’s best mate. Let’s take a look at this perfect division of labor.
Since 1949, “World Urbanism Day” is held on November 8 thanks to Professor Carlos Maria della Paolera of the University of Buenos Aires. The date also known as “World Town Planning Day” is devoted to promoting urban planning and design to create a more livable place for the growing population.
The Android platform was introduced on November 5, 2007. The popular operating system for mobile phones had several sweet releases since then ranging from Cupcake to Oreo. During its first decade, Android also managed to gain the largest share of the smartphone OS market. We celebrated its 10th birthday with an infographic that leads you through the major milestones.
