Leverage AI to match candidates to your job

Upload your job description and our AI-powered matching technology will scour our talent pool and show you the best matches in seconds.

Horizontal Talent's AI matching engine thinks like a recruiter. It doesn't see candidates as a string of keywords - it assesses them as humans with career trajectories to score the best overall matches for your role.

How to optimize job descriptions for AI matching

What to include

  • Job Title

    • Write in sentence case. (Capitalize the first word of each sentence and proper nouns.)

    • Keep job titles generic.

    • Don’t abbreviate - spell out the full title.

  • Location

    • Is your job based in a specific location? Follow this order: City, State, Zip Code.

  • Requirements & Skills

    • List requirements as bullet points (not paragraphs).

    • Include hard skills only. (No soft skills - e.g. emotional intelligence)

  • Experience

    • Two options - either write out “Requires 7+ years of experience” or “Requires 5-10 years of experience.”

    • For education, only include the minimum requirement. (Example: Bachelor’s degree)

    • For management experience, only include the minimum number of years required.

What not to include

Unlike resumes, job descriptions don’t tend to follow a universal format - making them trickier for AI to accurately score. To get the best possible matches, we recommend you omit the following information:

image
Company name or overview
image
Company culture
image
Insurance and benefits
image
Background checks or testing
