The work of an HR manager assumes a constant processing of colossal amounts of information about current and potential employees. Data volumes can be especially large when it comes to planning workloads or finding new candidates for the position. HRs have to carefully study the incredible quantities of documents day by day in order to arrive at a conclusion. Such activities are not only routine and time-consuming. Literally, a couple of hours of monotonous reviewing would make even the most meticulous person lose their focus (for example, a tired HR can simply overlook important information in the CV of the next candidate). To solve this problem, specialized software is used. These are applications for the automation of the personnel search. We compiled a brief review of the most popular among them.
