BimBamJob x Data For Good
SMS Chatbot for job seekers
Data For Good
is an association which aims to gather a community of data scientists, machine learners, developers, computer scientists, ... to address the technical challenges of social-oriented association and companies.
On the other side, BimBamJob
is a company that facilitates job-seeking for low-qualified persons, that are not at ease with online job-offers nor the french language.
To this end, BimBamJob reached out the DataForGood community. Our team of 4 data scientists & architects developped a SMS chatbot for job seekers. Based on the information they provide, the bot is able to create a curriculum vitae (personnal information, education, experiences, ...)
A Proof of Concept has then been developped to match individual curriculum to different job offers.
As this is the aim of the Data For Good community, the job has been done voluntarily - further details here
The service, which is hosted on Heroku, acts as an orchestrator that dialogs with the user and keeps track of the conversion progression. It send questions to an SMS provided that forward them directly on the user phone. The user answers are then analysed thanks to DialogFlow
, the Google API for Natural Language Processing, and specific details are stored on the user database.
The conversation is also send to the BimBamJob back-end so that BimBamJob employes are able to intervene directly on the workflow, and substitute the Bot with no change for the end user.
The users are then registered in the BimBamJob database, allowing personnalized job suggestions. Also, a website has been designed to allow users to get the final version of the Curriculum Vitae, and use it for personnal pursposes.
