AI-enabled software can leverage comprehensive candidates data based on their social media presence and online behavior while comparing the results with their likeliness to be interested in the job role.
FREMONT, CA: Companies are increasingly adopting technologies to achieve various feats, within as well as outside the organization. On similar lines, recruitment processes are getting transformed too. But are the transformations in the positive or the desired direction? Demand in a particular sector, economic fluctuations, and an overabundance of graduates with a similar qualification are enough to disarray the already complicated structure.
Especially with numerous applicants with relatively similar skill sets competing for a smaller number of jobs, it gets even more challenging for the recruiters to decide upon the course of action. Amidst such a challenging atmosphere, artificial intelligence (AI) offers promising potential for the future of recruitment.
AI and Recruitment
AI is not a new concept for the agents and the recruiters who are using AI-based systems for years. For instance, AI-enabled Application Tracking System (ATS) have helped the recruiters to scan through thousands of CVs while looking for phrases and keywords are also a norm.
However, the AI-based segregation of the CVs has also received its share of criticism from the job seekers who argue that AI reduces the CV to a matter of ‘yes or no’ purely dependent on the keyword-based search. Going with the alternative is a more significant challenge as the recruiters need to manually go through the profiles, which can be a time-consuming and challenging process.
How AI Complements Recruitment?
• Reduced Time Consumption
AI overtakes the more straightforward, mundane tasks such as answering common candidate questions, interview scheduling, and applicants screening. Such capabilities provide the recruiters to focus on more critical recruitment strategies.
• Shortlists Probable Candidates
AI-enabled software can leverage comprehensive candidates data based on their social media presence and online behavior while comparing the results with their likeliness to be interested in the job role. Moreover, the software can also leverage such data to determine the personality of the candidate and segregate them accordingly.
• Enhanced Candidate Experience
AI-powered chatbots are always there to address the candidate’s questions without the need for a day-off. The chatbots are also capable of providing the candidates with faster, efficient, and comprehensive solutions.
