Businesses across the world are rapidly adopting artificial intelligence (AI) to streamline their HR management processes. When used within recruitment, AI would make the process more effective and data-driven.
All HR recruiters are aware that an effective way of finding out about an applicant’s attitude, interests, and values is through their social media profiles; AI can perform this task in an advanced way. The technology analyzes a wide variety of words used in a candidate’s social media posts, and simplifies the talent pool during the early stages of the recruitment process. With the help of AI in the candidate search process, any risk of unconscious bias on the HR recruiter’s behalf is reduced. Moreover, the technology can ensure that recruiters focus on the applicant’s expertise and skills so the most talented candidates shine through, benefitting both the applicants and the recruiter.
The process of searching for a job, applying, and waiting for a reply can be painfully long and stressful for applicants; especially if the company they are applying through has an inefficient recruitment process. The candidates may get discouraged and also may have a negative perception of the company. However, AI technology can minimize this processing time; organizations can improve candidate experience and prevent them from becoming disengaged. The technology enables job applications to be reviewed for the required criteria immediately; applicants can find out in a matter of minutes whether they have been selected for the next stage of the hiring process.
AI will help identify and keep track of job aspirants’ behavior trends and patterns even before the candidate screening stage. It can pick up on the behavior of active job seekers by analyzing data, algorithms, and trends. The technology not only reaches the active job seekers, it also has the ability to target those who may not be actively searching for a job change. AI analyzes data from social media to learn when a user might be leaving their job, looking for a change in their career.
For HR recruiters, staying on top of job seekers’ trends and patterns can be a time-consuming process, but AI can take on this role and reduce manual investment. Online HR software with an integrated AI technology can be used to reach a larger pool of skilled and talented candidates. The solution undertakes candidate screening tasks and allows HR teams to spend more time on other valuable activities.
