Abstract

Recruiters, in the business of screening job applicants, are increasingly dependent on information systems especially digital resume databases. However, the current literature does not provide a consensus on the requirements for resume content for digital recruiting. This research contributes to the understanding of the different requirements of recruiters for offline and online resumes. We offer an analysis of the relevant literature; interviews with recruiters; and content analysis of the resume fields of 40 e-Recruiting sites. Based on this we identified a number of challenges in categorizing digital resume data and digital matching between resumes and job advertisements. We identify areas for further research on the maintenance and extension of online resume databases and derive recommendations for digital resume design
