Nowadays there is a constant interest in solving the problem of recruiting new personal in a constantly changing environment, while reducing the time invested into the process. We propose a solution that uses an intelligent chatbot which drives the screening interview. The users (job candidates) will feel like they talk to a real person and not just filling a simple webform for another job interview. At the same time, the chatbot can evaluate the data provided by users and score them through a sentiment analysis algorithm based on IBM Watson Personality Insights service. Our solution is meant to replace the first step in the interviewing process and to automatically elaborate a job candidate profile.
