AbstractA fundamental part in the operation of organizations

is the recruitment of human resources. In the search for ideal
candidates, due to the great expansion of the use of digital
media, there are currently many platforms that are used as
job boards, as well as employment oriented social networks,
like LinkedIn, which have extensive information about profes-
sional profiles of people. Because of this, these platforms have
become a key source of information for recruiters. However,
this high volume of information makes recognizing the best
candidates for a job more challenging, complicating the work
of recruiters and spending more resources, both in time and
money. Whats more, even the selection rules vary according
to the industry, the size of the company and the organizational
culture. Nonetheless, at the same time, it turns out that there
are different patterns that are associated to the match between
job requirements and the profile of a potential candidate.
This opens the possibility of automating a large part of this
process through the creation of a decision support system based
on pattern recognition techniques, such as natural language
processing, both classical and based on deep learning, and
recommendation systems, which are widely used in domains
such as movies, music, news, books and products in general.
In this paper, we present a novel approach based on the
conjunction of such techniques, in order to help recruiters
find the optimal candidate for a specific job. Using web pages
of jobs, we extract the most important descriptive texts of
job offers and user profiles to generate features through word
embeddings that allow us to homologate them in a vector
space. Thanks to these features, we can measure the skills
of an applicant and then make a ranking of the most suitable
candidates for each job offer. Finally, we use a semi-automatic
metric for validation that considers tagged data made by
experts and compute the performance of our model.
