The Abandonment of CVs and the Embrace of AI

According to the Harvard Business Review, 75-90 percent of people are rejected based on their CV. Yet, out of seven ways to test a candidate’s suitability for a position, job experience and CVs were retrospectively the least predictive of success.

Two global companies – PwC and DXC Technology – have both made a move away from CVs and instead are relying on artificial intelligence and behavioural talent signals to guide them.

In this panel discussion facilitated by Grace, Michael Fieldhouse will share how this shift enables DXC to help companies achieve a key diversity goal – to welcome people on the autism spectrum into a career in technology. David Yates will share why personal qualities, team fit and true potential to succeed, none of which can be assessed in a CV, are prioritised in PwC’s graduate recruitment program and their results to-date.
