About the approach
Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe
When starting a search for the next team member, thinking of candidate persona is similar to the act of "sharpening the axe" which will save you tonnes of back and forth work down the line. This approach has been utilized by most successful people already, Altmen makes it intuitive and more powerful.
Benefits of thinking in terms of candidate persona
This leads you to revelation and better results because it
Breaks mental barriers
Puts an end to robotic expectations from humans
Challenges to think big
Source of people's database
Primary source is micro communities we have partnered with where we have data and explicit consent required from candidates to perform the search, this is the most reliable source. Secondary source is public profiles available all over the internet, this source is currently experimental.
It is one thing to put together an approach which humans can follow and it's another thing to get computer to do it effectively on scale. We have put together our years of computer science research to create Altmen algorithm which gets the best results without sacrficing creativity, learning along the way and making it an unbiased effective solution.
