Piloted since April 2018, Jim has helped DBS recruiters to review resumes, collect applicants’ responses for pre-screening questions, and conduct psychometric profiling assessments on candidates.

Recruiters tend to spend up to 20% of their time collecting information and responding to emails before meeting with shortlisted candidates. By automating the pre-screening process, Jim will help save some 40 manhours a month. 

This enables recruiters to spend more time sourcing for candidates, interviewing applicants, focus on talent advisory or even upskilling themselves. With Jim, candidates also benefit from a faster, more streamlined process, with real-time interaction available 24/7.

Jim, an acronym for “Jobs Intelligence Maestro”, is the brainchild of Singapore start-up Impress.AI and DBS’ Talent Acquisition team. It was custom-built to meet the needs of DBS’ recruiters and applicants. Jim is powered by artificial intelligence and over time, will learn to make better assessments in screening candidates. 

Once officially launched, Jim is now present in DBS’ core markets – Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Indonesia and India – for wealth planning manager roles.
