There's lots of noise around AI and it's impact on the workforce and business productivity. But how's it going to impact recruiters?
Whilst some tasks will undoubtedly be performed better and more consistently by a machine, ironically including delivering a more personalised and candidate-centric recruitment journey, there's still a clear role for human intervention in the process.
Artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep learning have dominated industries and headlines for years. This begs the question: how will AI affect me and my role? The recruiting industry has been particularly susceptible, as AI and advanced technology can parse through an avalanche of resumes faster than you can Snapchat your breakfast. AI is intrinsically data-driven. It thrives in key processes such as data generation, development of algorithms and the evaluation of results. AI can look into the vast universe of social media and beyond, detect great prospective employees and understand their skills and capabilities on a deeper level, which may be easily missed on a standard resume. And in the utopian world we’re working toward, AI won’t be swayed by bias; it will look solely at data.
