Automated screening saves time and money, but who gets left out?
The last time Chuck Blatt searched for a job, about 10 years ago, he relied on a thoughtful cover letter, a résumé printed on nice paper and good rapport during a face-to-face interview.

Since Blatt, 50, left his job as vice president of a painting and construction company in March, he has spent nearly every day in front of the computer in his Chicago home applying for jobs via automated processes.
