Un-supervise learned word embeddings have seen tremendous success in numerous Natural Language Processing (NLP) tasks in recent years. The main contribution of this paper is to develop a technique called Skill2vec, which applies machine learning techniques in recruitment to enhance the search strategy to find the candidates who possess the right skills. Skill2vec is a neural network architecture which inspired by Word2vec, developed by Mikolov et al. in 2013, to transform a skill to a new vector space. This vector space has the characteristics of calculation and present their relationship. We conducted an experiment using AB testing in a recruitment company to demonstrate the effectiveness of our approach.
