The best recruiters are doing this already – are you?

The automation revolution is here and if you’re a recruiter, you need to make sure you’re not missing out. Human connection is still at the heart of recruitment, but Artificial Intelligence has the brains.

Savvy recruiters are getting a lead on their competitors by adapting the technology to make the recruiting process faster and more effective.

The best AI technology will not only automate your workflow, but reduce the time-to-hire. So if you’re thinking of starting your own recruiting agency – it’s important to know which machine-learning tools could help you compete.

  • AI for screening: There’s artificial intelligence software you can use on your existing database to screen CVs. It can also compare new candidates’ skills against experienced ones and rank them – so it’s easier to find the strongest candidates.
  • Chatbots: This is relatively new, but the idea is a chatbot could make the candidate user experience more positive. Not hearing back from a recruitment agency is a common bugbear for many applicants. So an automated chatbot that kept candidates in the loop throughout the application process will create a better experience without taking up your time.
  • Data gathering: Top talent can get picked up and placed quickly. Website interactions, email responses and social media profiles can help you filter out passive job seekers and target those who are engaging. It can also help you build a more detailed profile of potential candidates. So when you need to identify the best candidates quickly, you’re ready to strike.

Watch out

You need to make sure the technology you introduce is the right fit. It needs to streamline your workflow, not create extra work. So take advantage of the free trials many companies offer to test how well their AI tool integrates with your current system.

Why it’s a game-changer

This isn’t about using AI to replace people, but to speed up and improve processes that traditionally take up a recruiters time. You can set up a targeted hiring strategy rather than just being reactive. And the data you can gather will make your KPIs a great way to impress hiring managers.

But ultimately, AI can free up time you can spend building those all-important human relationships. Which are the key to every recruiting agency’s success.

So if you’re thinking of being your own boss one day, make sure you keep on top of the best AI tools.
