Artificial Intelligence (AI) Transforming Hiring

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has highly transformed the hiring process through helping HR professionals recruit and attract talent more effectively! As professionals in Talent Acquisition with a combined 40+ years in the industry, we have experienced the benefits and shortfalls of working with AI.

The biggest impact we have seen with Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the hiring process is the automated identification of candidates who match position requirements. We have also seen a shift towards skills based analysis and development of talent profiles.

Below is an overview the benefits of AI in the hiring process:

  • Automated Screening- AI can assess a large volume of candidates fit based on predefined requirements. This saves time for Recruiters & HR professionals by limiting the time it takes to review resumes with unmatched criteria. As an applicant be cognizant of key words in job descriptions and take the time to embed those into your documents.

 

  • Chatbots- Some AI platforms can communicate with candidates in real-time and can ask preliminary questions such as interview availability or certifications.

 

  • Reduced Bias- AI can help promote Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) by eliminating personal biases and contributes to a diverse hiring process. The technology is selecting matches based on qualifications, key words, and education.

 

  • Efficiency- Certain platforms can also note if a candidate has applied previously to an organization and specific role. This helps HR professionals review prior interview notes and decide whether the candidate is a fit. As an applicant be careful when applying to multiple roles at one organization. This may have an adverse impact to your chances of being hired.

 

  • Automated Outreach- AI platforms can generate emails and job descriptions using GPT, another way to save time and costs. As an applicant be careful to not use these tools to write for you, but more as an ancillary tool to support your writing.

There are several AI platforms that help HR professionals kickstart the recruitment process. Check out Workable, Phenom, and Zoho Recruit- just to name a few! It is is important that job seekers know how these tools work as well, so that you develop an understanding of what you need to do as an applicant.

We write this from the perspective of the business and its impact on the ability to hire top talent, however these insights are important for a candidate to know as well, since this will impact how you craft your résumé and search for positions.
