How will AI impact the role of a recruiter?

 The Increasing Impact of AI on Recruitment

As tech tycoons such as Elon Musk, and politicians like Andrew Yang sound the alarms on the future of AI, everyone is left wondering how AI will affect their careers. Will some people even have careers, as AI proves to be more precise, agile and cost-effective in most lines of work? But, the even more mind-boggling and worrisome question is, how will AI affect all of our careers? In many ways, the careers of every employee rely on the people responsible for the human resource management in their companies. What if AI replaces these people? Does a dystopian future await, where all of our data harvested determines our careers? The answer should be no.

In many lines of work, the AI is leveraged by the humans to produce the desired outcome, so the humans aren’t irrelevant (yet). Nonetheless, maintenance and optimization of AI could actually be creating more jobs than they are destroying. For now, at least…

How is AI Being Used in Recruitment?

As we’re theorizing the prospects of an absolute AI takeover, we’ll need to first highlight how AI is being used in recruitment. Is the role of AI so pervasive that recruiters are at risk of becoming irrelevant in the recruitment process? Let’s take a look at some of the ways AI has been introduced to recruitment and some its effects.

AI in Recruitment | Candidate Sourcing & Automation

Determining which Candidates Match Best for the Job

Hiring teams are not always specialized for recruiting all roles, and as such, there can be a degree of uncertainty when screening candidates for skills and technicalities. Smart screening powered by AI can help dissect the candidates’ profiles and determine how much they match with the job. In addition, online assessment tools, personality tests and other screening methods can be facilitated with AI to determine the candidates’ technical abilities.

Removing Biases from Decision-Making

Another wonderful thing about AI in recruitment is that it can help remove biases from decision-making procedures. Through the insertion of objective assessments of candidates, the decision-making process in recruitment will be redefined. 

But don’t worry, the human is still in control. Sourcing and screening for cultural fits is still something that the AI won’t be able to do, as a lot of times, it’s not definitive exactly what would make a good cultural fit. A lot of these decisions can be based on intuition and emotion, and without accurate data input, the AI can’t know what to look for. Even if AI significantly improves in understanding human emotions, humans would have to significantly improve at understanding what they’re looking for in terms of organizational fits… Removing biases from deciding cultural fits is rather being improved through the application of facilitated collaborative hiring with recruitment software.

Sourcing Candidates

Sourcing candidates for jobs is made significantly easier with AI. With automated candidate rankings, resume parsing and data collection & organization, not using AI to source candidates nowadays is a death sentence. But there’s still a long way to go for candidate sourcing. Take this into account: when you go to Google you can search and find anything you’re looking for, that’s not quite the case yet when it comes to searching for a candidate.

Honestly, the possibilities of HR-tech in the recruitment field are exciting, and it’ll be fascinating to see what the future of recruitment holds. As more and more companies realize the benefits of leveraging recruitment software, it is safe to assume that an HR-tech revolution is afoot.


How will AI impact the role of a recruiter?

The modern recruiter in the age of AI

As we explored the possibilities and uses of AI in recruitment, we saw, however, that the role of the recruiter is substantial. The evolution of HR-tech will see recruiters have powerful technology at their disposal, to be able to carry out their recruitment practices with more ease and precision.

In truth, we are already seeing this revolution right here before us, as recruitment software enables more and more employers recruiters to recruit like enterprises with huge HR departments would, and recruitment practices such as recruitment marketing and global hiring being more accessible.

In conclusion, the recruiter is here to stay, only with far more advanced technology to help them build their team.

Candidate sourcing is one of the most important tasks of recruiters. The process involves finding potential candidates and converting them to active candidates through relationship building, or candidate relationship management. But sometimes, it may be difficult to evaluate whether a potential candidate would be a good fit to the job or not, especially if the recruiter is not specialised in the field they’re recruiting for.

Recruiters shouldn’t feel unconfident sourcing from fields of work they have little technical familiarity with, and their sourcing should be optimized with a purpose-built database and interface which makes adding candidates to the pipeline simple and quick!

Recruitment AI and Automation with HireBee

AI and Automation in Recruitment

AI & automation in recruitment, just as in many other lines of work, have revolutionized the industry by boosting productivity and creating new opportunities for businesses, ultimately saving time and costs. So what can AI & automation in your recruitment do for you? Here are some of the recruitment processes you will be automating with HireBee.

Automated Candidate Communication

It reflects poorly on your candidate experience if you’re not keeping your candidates informed throughout their application process, but it may also seem too time consuming to update every single candidate with their progress. With HireBee’s custom workflows, email templates and email integration, your applicants are automatically updated with their progress as they move along the pipeline.

Here is how this works. You create customized workflows, which include your hiring stages, and email templates for when candidates are moved through these stages. As you review your candidates from our platform and move candidates through the process, you trigger the automated mail upon changing the status of your applicant. 

Manual candidate communication is also made easier and faster, as you can email candidates through the platform, directly through their candidate profile. Human Capital Institute claims that lack of response from employers is the number one cause of a negative candidate experience, with 60% of candidates never hearing back from employers after an interview; an unnecessary mistake which hurts your employer brand. HireBee makes your candidates happier and maintains the integrity of your employer brand, all while saving time and money.

AI Powered Candidate Screening

HireBee uses AI to give users a ranking on their candidates. The ranking indicates who the best fits for the posted job are. Recruiters can use this tool to manage and review their candidates in order of best fit, to introduce priorities to your recruitment. 

Also, as job application has increasingly become easier, many job-seekers may apply to multiple jobs without properly looking through the job description and the qualifications required, to submit a large amount of applications. Depending on your sources, this may result in the reception of irrelevant applications. HireBee’s AI powered candidate screening helps weed out the irrelevant applications and enables you to hire with focus. 

Candidate Management

HireBee’s features for sorting, filtering and searching through your centralized database of candidates facilitate the reviewing process. With HireBee’s purpose-built database, you’ll find that reviewing candidates and moving them through the process is super easy. Bulk-action, previews and extensive candidate profiles with storage of everything about the candidate make HireBee the optimal platform for candidate management.

Besides its ease-of-use, the platform ensures that the interface is pleasant to look at. The interface doesn’t intimidate the user with an overwhelming cluster of data to read through. Instead,  it makes the experience more pleasant with a vibrant aesthetic, photo profiles of the candidates, and clearly formatted information.

Enjoy other Automation Features

Outlining all automation features in HireBee would require the mention of every feature, since one of HireBee’s core purposes is to ease the amount of manual work which has to be done by recruiters, and virtually every function within HireBee contributes to this purpose. So we instead listed the automation tools which are built specifically for automation purposes.
