How Artificial Intelligence Will Affect Headhunting! Artificial Intelligence is on the rise! You may think of robots or automated cars, but even social sites like Facebook and Twitter use AI algorithms to display content. While we aren’t to the place where AI is completely taking away jobs yet, new tools are being developed that can streamline your search for the best new candidates.
Screening resumes and candidates can take hours and is definitely one of the most difficult parts of recruiting. According to ideal, 52% of talent acquisition leaders say the hardest part of recruitment is identifying the right candidates from a large applicant pool. Luckily, AI tools have come along to help make this process more efficient, leading to better long-term results.
One tool is Mya, which automates communication during the recruitment phase. The software answers candidate questions regarding company policies, culture, benefits, and other FAQs. One perk is that the software makes these questions answerable 24/7 through text, social media, Skype, e-mail, and even browser chat. In the few instances where Mya cannot answer the question, the software contacts a recruiter, saving them countless hours fielding the same requests. This software can significantly cut down on your recruiting cost over time by reducing hours spent.
AI is also improving the process of video interviewing with programs like Affectiva, which can help gauge candidate’s emotional intelligence through cues like facial expressions, speech rate, vocal tones, and even word choice!
But how are these programs changing the role of the recruiter? Recruiters will be able to be more productive in the areas of strategic hiring as opposed to reactively filling empty positions. They can use more of their time developing in-person relationships with top candidates and as more data is involved, they will be able to measure successful strategies and quality of hires from those services.
