This relocation can be quite a daunting thing. What is the best way to prepare to ensure that the experience is a positive one?

Analytics and its role in the Recruitment Process

Big Data Analytics is used by many global companies to understand people’s behaviors; Amazon and Ebay are notable examples. Through web attitudes and habits, these e-commerce driven businesses are able to obtain information on what people search online. For example following a search for a product on Google, you might find the same product appearing magically on your Amazon homepage later. This is not magic however; it is personalized target marketing through Big Data Analytics.

Above the Cloud, Tech in the Sky by Joshua Buckles

In late 2017, on my thirtieth birthday, my girlfriend got me a gift for my new hobby. I must say she has always supported me in my crazy obsessions and hobbies. In this case the obsession started a few months prior after coming across a First Person View (FPV) Drone freestyle video.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPncw2vhiMg

In early 2010’s FPV drone racing and aerial photography drones began to be more accessible to the larger populace. This was due, in part, to the components beginning to become more affordable and the spread of toy drones. From these toy drones, new RC enthusiast’s began to experiment and joined RC veterans in the world of FPV.

Artificial Intelligence - Taking or Creating Jobs?

The diffusion of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is set to significantly influence
human life over the next decade, but to what extent will it replace the humans
it seeks to help? Humans often look to the future in a linear fashion, perhaps
unaware of the exponential change that technology will bring. Here at GemPool,
we’ve seen the market edge closer and closer towards a more mature AI focused
industry in Ireland, with the potential for exponential growth. The question
has arisen as to whether humans and robots can co-exist in our current working
environment. Will AI make human labour redundant? If so, what jobs are at risk?
Furthermore, what jobs will be created?


I.T’s All Men! By Shannon Begley

Ireland has

truly become a global tech hub and, with the industry thriving, 2018 is set to
be another exciting year within the ICT sector in Ireland. As a recruiter in
this industry, I just don’t understand why I spend most of my days speaking to
men. Each day I source for developers
and each day I ask myself the same question, where are all the women? At GemPool, we cover so many areas within the ICT sector and each area
does vary in terms of the woman to man ratio. However, after sourcing for
developers for over 5 months now, I can count how many women I’ve spoken to on
one hand.
