Description: The bot is ready to see you now. Or maybe not. That is, you may not even get in the door of a company you are interested in joining because the resume-reading bot has already declared you ineligible for the position. It’s hard to get to the short-list when you can’t even make it onto the interview list because the AI bot did not like your resume. The bots are a money-saving move by companies to cut the costs of recruiting, but they can miss qualified candidates. There is also a concern that bots may be unfair to candidates who have certain disabilities.

1) How does this prospect of a bot examining your resume impact you?

2) Do you know if any of the large employers of accounting graduates are using this technology?

3) On page 3-8 of Wiley’s Financial Accounting: Tools for Business Decision-Making we read about transaction analysis for hiring of new employees. Does this type of activity represent an accounting transaction?
