Have you wondered how to advance in your career when you have multiple options? Or how to recruit the right team for your project or organization?

Searching for the optimum job or team member can be viewed as a mathematical optimization problem that we can navigate using well known heuristics.

Heuristic algorithms are techniques that can be used to solve decision problems that have no clear procedure, which in technical terms are called, NP-Complete problems. These innovative algorithms have been applied to engineering and financial problems for decades.

In this talk, you will learn how to use them in your own career planning or organization's recruitment strategy.

You will also learn how combinatorial optimization algorithms, such as simulated annealing and stochastic optimization can help professionals to get unstuck in their career advancement.

Organizations can also use the technique in recruitment and team building.
