How AI is Changing Recruitment
Artificial intelligence (AI) is making inroads in the recruitment industry, providing recruiters and employers with a way to boost the traditional and often tedious way of finding and hiring suitable candidates. Here are X ways AI is changing the recruitment process.
Automates candidate selection
AI automates the way recruiters find and hire potential candidates, simplifying the complex search for the right fit. AI virtual assistance can assist in identifying skills matches, analysing the capabilities of potential candidates, and assisting with interviews. It’s all about finding the perfect fit for the employer.
Leads to quality hiring
Quality hiring contributes to decreasing staff turnover, which is a critical requirement for employers. Recruiters can use AI technology to filter through applications and detect the best possible quality leads. The candidates with the highest potential will be ranked first before less qualified prospects.
Saves recruiters’ time
Recruiters can save more time by narrowing down the candidate list to the most viable options for hiring. AI makes the process of sifting through job applications faster by selecting candidates that match the given specs. The technology can also provide insights into each candidate in less time than
Provides Valuable Analytics
AI technology can also gather and assess the data of each candidate. Recruiters can take full advantage of insights they may have missed otherwise. The most promising candidates are selected from the large pool of applicants and recommended for those placements where their skills and talents are maximised, based on the data analytics and insights collected.
Recruitment is not just about candidate selection and hiring. AI technology can assist by automating those manual tasks that consume significant time in the recruitment process, giving recruiters more chances to spend on building relationships with employers to gauge what clients need, consulting and strategic decision-making.
