Book Release: The Essential A.I. & Data Science Handbook for Recruitment
Updated: Feb 6, 2020
For anyone looking to source Data Science talent - my book "The Essential A.I. & Data Science Handbook for Recruitment" is available on Amazon now!
"This book represents an essential guide to terminologies and techniques that anyone working in Recruitment, Talent or Human Resources for the Data Science industry should know. I strongly advise anyone who has ever sat, bemused, as Data Scientists try to explain what their work involves - absorb this book in its entirety"
- Robin Huggins (Director of Academy & Client Services at MBN Solutions & Data IQ 100 recipient)
"I love the concept of this book. Anything to help recruiters be more engaging and understanding of their customers is key to their success"
- Alex Moyle (Founder of Recruiting Gym)
Aimed at those in recruitment or HR, as well as hiring managers - this handbook will give you a competitive edge in what is a fast paced, rapidly growing, and highly technical field.
It will get you closer to the distinct needs of your clients, and provide a richer understanding of candidate skill and experience.
Through the book, I lean away from mathematical notation and jargon, explaining and comparing all the key concepts, tools, and algorithms commonly listed on job descriptions and CVs in what I hope you find to be a lightweight, interesting, and fun manner.
I also spend time discussing the new ways that candidates are learning their skills, and provide template questions for interviewing/screening - even for those who don't see themselves as particularly technical.
Here is the foreword, written by Robin Huggins - the Director of Academy & Client Services at MBN Solutions. In 2019 he Robin was included in the Data IQ 100, a list of the most influential data and analytics practitioners in UK organisations.
I’ve spent the guts of 20 years working in, on and behind the “Front Lines” of Recruitment and Talent Acquisition for the Data Industry.
In that time, I’ve seen the then “emerging” field of Data Analysis evolve into the complex, nuanced monster that it is today. Along the way, that evolution incorporated Data Science and, increasingly, highly sophisticated practices such as Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language Processing and Computer Vision.
As a Human Resource professional, I am required to furnish my clients and stakeholders with the most up-to-date understanding of the Data Talent market available. I’ve spent more hours than I’d care to mention in University classrooms, at Conferences, reading White Papers, watching Youtube videos or simply just talking to and asking Data Science professionals questions that would allow me to understand the technical side of the world they work in.
I am absolutely delighted that Andrew has taken the time to complete this book. What started off as a “good little idea” at the beginning of the year has turned into something way more tangible and beneficial.
This book represents an essential guide to terminologies and techniques that anyone working in Recruitment, Talent or Human Resources for the Data Science industry should know. I strongly advise anyone who has ever sat, bemused, as Data Scientists try to explain what their work involves - absorb this book in its entirety. No longer will you act like a rabbit in the headlights as phrases like “Naive Bayes Classifier” and “K-Means clustering” are bandied around!
Andrew has managed to accomplish that most difficult of tasks – to explain highly complex subject matter in an easily understandable way – and has maintained his sense of humour and charm throughout.
My only wish is that he’d use his Data Science superpowers to take us both back 20 years in time so that I could read this book at the start of my career!
