How Artificial Intelligence Can (And Can’t) Take The Headache Out Of Talent Recruitment
Searching for people to fill jobs requires a lot of research. Experience, skill sets, salary expectations, coordinating interviews, and numerous other issues must be addressed to match worker to employer.
Artificial intelligence and machine learning are making all of those calculations easier, and the future of hiring will likely only get more streamlined due to those technologies.
“One very specific example of this is coordinating and scheduling for incoming (job) candidates,” says Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, chief economist with Glassdoor.com, a job search and salary information platform with 50 million online visitors per month. “There are companies like X.AI who now offer chatbots that handle scheduling totally.” That program, he explained, allows recruiters to shoot out meeting invites to multiple prospective job candidates and automatically fills in calendar spaces as they respond—essentially acting as an AI personal assistant. For a company that hires hundreds of new people per year, that’s a real time-saver.
