Why You Need to Incorporate AI Into Your Job Board
Are you in the job-search business? If so, you’ve most likely learned about AI. Whether it seems intriguing or frustrating, AI is seeping into the job-searching industry and changing it for good. Here are some compelling reasons to stay ahead of the curve and implement AI into your job board.
AI saves you time. According to this recruiting article from Ideal, “52% of Talent Acquisition leaders say the hardest part of recruitment is screening candidates from a large applicant pool.” If you have 1000 applications to look through, it’s impossible to give each applicant the time they deserve. Thankfully, AI enables you to spend more time on the important parts of the application process by doing the manual screening work for you (according to Ideal’s article). Watch this video to learn about how to incorporate Ideal’s AI as a recruiter, and get ready to have a lot more time on your hands as AI does a large chunk of the manual labor for you.
AI allows you to create a cohesive team. Hiring skilled and competent individuals is challenging enough, but then trying to ensure that all of these individuals work well together is a whole other battle. AI helps to speed this process along by allowing you to specify the qualities you want in a team. For instance, iCIMS explains that their Talent Cloud AI can “Help recruiters and hiring managers build the best teams by allowing them to describe the perfect candidate, then find them in minutes.” This allows you as the employer to identify key traits you’re looking for, and then see exactly which candidates have these traits. Your team-building goal just got a whole lot easier.
AI helps to remove bias from the workplace. It can be difficult to truly hire in an unbiased way. We can even have unconscious bias pop up. Thankfully, AI helps to remove this bias by helping you to sort through candidates purely based on their credentials and how well they match your goals. You might be surprised at the employees that are matched with your job listing, as AI helps you to cultivate a more open and diverse mindset. As Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic and Reece Akhtar from the Harvard Business Review explain, digital interviews help to remove bias from the interview process, and AI can take it a step further by analyzing the facial expressions in the video and evaluating whether the candidate would be a wise match for the job listing.
If you’re looking to save time, form a team that will last, and remove unconscious bias, implement AI into your job board and watch how much smoother your recruiting process starts running.
