10 Ways Artificial Intelligence Will Change Recruitment Practices Posted on Aug 10 - 2018

According to Undercover Recruiter, artificial intelligence (AI) is expected to replace 16% of HR jobs within the next 10 years. While this doesn’t necessarily mean you will be without a position, it does mean that your time will free up with this technology’s integration.

AI can make recruiting easier and quicker. It can improve the recruitment process and help with those mundane tasks that no one appreciates. Allowing AI to assist you in the recruiting process can give you the time to focus more on hiring the right person for the job versus the tasks necessary to make it happen.

Below, 10 members of Forbes Coaches Council share the ways they expect AI to revolutionize the job searching/recruiting process. Here’s what they had to say:

1. Ensuring Best Fit

AI will be able to fill in the gaps for an employer by assessing not just the candidate's resume, but the candidate's online presence and overall fit more accurately. For example, a candidate might be very active in supporting social causes, and this would be picked up by an AI tool. Conversely, a candidate could use AI to find the best fit by creating a profile for their values, goals and career aspirations. - Cheryl Amyx, 4CEO, Inc.

2. Skills To Engage With Recruitment Platforms

One way that AI will revolutionize candidate search is in the context of the skills that job seekers will need to acquire on the front end just to apply and engage with intelligent recruitment platforms. AI recruiting video interview platforms, for example, use biometric and psychometric analysis to evaluate not only the quality of candidate answers but also voice quality, pace of speech, voice energy, use of fillers, facial micro-expressions and body language. - Dr. Terri Horton, TLT Consulting

3. Improved Online Applications

Applicant tracking systems (recruiter databases) use keywords, word flows, and other data points to analyze and prioritize the thousands of resumes they receive online for each posted position. As employers use increasingly complex technology to this end, expect firms to monetize these same tools by repurposing them for job hunters, enabling more effective applications through predictive analytics. - Scott Singer, Insider Career Strategies

4. Faster Initial Selection Process

I've hired a lot in my time, and the most time-consuming task is getting the best candidates selected for a tier one interview by sifting through hundreds of possibles. To me, a revolution is getting the one resource that can't be recovered, and that is time. AI can search to find matching candidates, make contact, conduct preliminary interviews, assess resumes, and present the best for an interview. - Tracy Repchuk, InnerSurf Online Brand & Web Services View More
