Every year we hold an informational webinar to introduce the Consortium to new members and show how our workgroups and projects operate. This is also a great opportunity to remind our members about the important work we do, how to be a part of it, and how we benefit the HR technology community.
Well, you won’t need a spoon to develop in the HR Open Github environment. Forking and branching are two methods for deviating from the Main (approved and deployed) code. A branch is part of the original repository, whereas a fork is a copy of the original repository. HR Open recommends our workgroups use branches.
Did you know that the term WikiWiki is Hawaiian for “fast; quick.” At HR Open, we use Wiki for collaborative editing of our documentation. HR Open is a global community of volunteers, dispersed throughout numerous time zones, so we can’t always communicate through conference calls.
Github is a great developer and collaboration tool, especially for HR Open’s distributed standards development projects. Although HR Open uses Github as intended, we wanted to share some notes on our usage guidelines within the workgroups.
HR Open Standards is partnering with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation on the JDX JobSchema+ Project. The Chamber Foundation recently announced the public feedback period is open on the project which looks to significantly evolve the existing data standard for job postings. HR Open is proud to be working on this project that will support more diverse hiring needs and in-demand skills and competencies in a modern workplace. This project closely relates to HR Open Standards mission to enable innovation in the HR Technology Industry by providing a turnkey solution to the problem of data exchange.
HR Open Standards hosted a webinar on Thursday, October 18th as a follow up to our meetings at HR Tech. This informational webinar was designed to give an in-depth overview about HR Open, our workgroups, networking opportunities, and the benefits of becoming a member.
How will our SearchDocument criteria will help you search through resumes?
There are many choices available when searching for a candidate – job boards, staffing agencies, resume databases – just to name a few. How do you search through the various database systems and how often do you receive accurate results that are relevant to your open position?
At HR Open Standards our recruiting workgroup is working on a SearchDocument schema to help take the guess work out of your resume parsing, saving you time, and providing you with the tools to find a perfect candidate!
