How Artificial Intelligence Is Changing Recruitment

Published on: Dec 3, 2020

Technology has enhanced many industries, and recruiting is no exception. Artificial intelligence (AI) is one of the upcoming trends in hiring employees. AI-based software offers flexible solutions for human resource managers and recruiters to make hiring employees a more efficient process.

A recent study by Oracle and Future Workplace discovered that human resources professionals believe AI will present ways to master new skills and lead to more free time that allows them to expand their roles.

What is AI?

Artificial intelligence (AI) is intelligence demonstrated by machines. The term is used to describe how machines learn and solve problems. A machine makes rational decisions based on algorithms that mimic cognitive functions. In recruiting, artificial intelligence can leverage machines to focus on the needs of potential employees.

The automation of processes occurs because AI can analyze big data and estimate options. Automating the hiring process is one way to make your recruitment strategy more effective and efficient. Here is how AI can be used in recruitment:

  • Candidate Screening: AI tools that answer common questions from candidates can give information about that candidate. Recruiters will be able to assess the candidate effectively because AI will fill in any gaps of information about the applicant to ensure the employer is getting a good fit.
  • Candidate Engagement: Artificial intelligence can be used to automate an engagement process that goes beyond standard emails, which makes for a more personalized hiring process for each applicant. Messages and responses can be done in real-time and made to be unique to each candidate.
  • Scheduling: Coordinating schedules is a task. Artificial intelligence can eliminate this task by managing schedules, booking meetings and interviews automatically.
  • Re-engagement: Candidates often are not contacted again after a job requisition is closed. AI enables employers to re-engage with a targeted group of applicants to update their record with new work skills since the last time they were contacted.
  • Onboarding: Orientation for new hires has been found effective, but AI can give new employees resources that support company initiatives. AI can reinforce information that was previously presented.
