Top Global Trends in Recruiting: Artificial Intelligence
Artificial intelligence is on the rise, and now it has made its way into the global recruiting game. Interestingly, it has been adopted rapidly and many recruiters are thrilled with the results. Here are some of the biggest global recruiting trends that are being influenced by artificial intelligence.
Sourcing Job Candidates
The number one advantage that artificial intelligence has to offer is with the sourcing of qualified job candidates. Artificial intelligence is being used to efficiently and effectively weed through resumes and cover letters searching for keywords and highlights that are most relevant to the recruiter. This system is saving time and money, while also bringing together the best pool of candidates available at once.
Early Screening Processes
Perhaps one of the most time-intensive parts of interviewing new candidates is the first stage screening and interviews. You may have dozens of candidates that require your attention, and even simple scheduling tasks can take you away from more pressing matters. By handing the earliest screening processes off to AI, it is possible to weed out first round candidates rapidly without requiring significant input from your team. In fact, more than 56% of AI users report this function as one of the most important parts of their recruitment strategy.
For those candidates that are on the fence, repeated personalized contacts and touch points are a necessity. However, taking the time out of your day to make this happen is a hassle. Artificial Intelligence is now capable of making those touches happen with a little bit of personal flair in a way that is nearly indistinguishable from a personal email sent by a real recruiter. Not only does this save you time, it actually gives you the opportunity to track data regarding how many of your messages are opened, what the clickthrough rate is, etc.
Global recruiters have found numerous ways to integrate artificial intelligence with positive results. As this technology continues to grow and learn, we can expect to see the job application process change as well to reflect more early screening and better candidate pools overall.
