July 21, 2022
Have you ever wondered which two words generate the most buzz in tech circles today? Yes, you guessed that right: artificial intelligence! A lot of ink has been spilled discussing the awesome ways AI is transforming, improving, and enhancing the world of talent acquisition. In fact, it wasn’t so long ago that forecasts about AI in talent acquisition brought to mind robots taking over our jobs. But today, things are different.
Recruiters who use AI-powered recruiting solutions in talent acquisition, know that AI is only here to help.
How? We break it all down for you in today’s blog post!
AI helps you accelerate candidate sourcing
When it comes to sourcing candidates and posting jobs, recruiters can’t be expected to know everything. This is where AI plays a critical role in talent acquisition. Tired of jumping from one tab to the other to post a job? Finding it hard to track your candidate sources? Worry no more. With an advanced hiring platform like EVA-REC, you can seamlessly integrate with a suite of 2,000+ job boards, niche channels, and social media sites. Which ultimately makes cross-posting jobs on a variety of different channels easy and hassle-free. Not only that, but if you’re not sure where to post your jobs at, the hiring platform will help. It gives you the optimal channel recommendations based on the job’s region, category, industry, and title. Therefore, sparing you endless hours of tedious research and administrative work. Plus, you’ll make sure that you’re targeting the most effective job boards for your job role. And with a more focused approach, you’ll also reduce the administrative burden of manually searching for the most appropriate job boards. But it doesn’t stop there. The AI also adds more value to your talent acquisition by helping you track your candidate sources from one single place. Allowing you to see which channels are most effective and driving the most page visits and conversions. With such information at hand, it becomes relatively easier for you to prioritize the most relevant candidate sources, optimize your talent acquisition, and post jobs on the right channels, every time.
AI helps you match candidates to jobs
AI won’t only help you reduce your sourcing time, but it also improves your talent acquisition by helping you match candidates to the right jobs. So let’s say that a particular job demands certain technical skills, expertise, or other capabilities. The AI in a hiring platform, for example, can search for the keywords that you’re looking for and pull out the candidates that are a perfect match for the role. This allows you to enhance your talent acquisition efforts and make sure that all candidates are fairly matched to the right jobs. The process is fairly simple. Let’s take our award-winning hiring platform as an example. With EVA-REC, recruiters can seamlessly turn their offline database into an online, accessible, and searchable one. Where they can drag and drop the mass number of resumes into EVA-REC and all the candidates’ information will be immediately parsed from their resumes. A matching percentage will then appear next to each candidate’s profile which signifies how closely the candidate’s profile matches the job requirements. This helps recruiters make the right hiring decisions, as only qualified candidates can proceed to the next steps of the talent acquisition process.
AI helps you enhance diversity and mitigate bias
AI not only helps you remove bias from talent acquisition, but it also helps you boost your diversity and inclusion initiatives. This way, you can instill greater innovation in your organization, boost productivity, and increase retention rates. Thanks to AI, talent acquisition teams can now seamlessly create a fairer and more equitable hiring process. Simply because AI in talent acquisition is designed to disregard factors related to age, race, gender, and ethnicity. Let’s put this into perspective. Many job descriptions are ingrained with bias. If you’re targeting diverse candidates, you need to avoid gendered language. Make it a habit to create neutral job ads that aren’t specific to a particular gender. So you can use “you” instead of “he” or “she”. Plus, you need to write your job ads without the jargon. If you’re using jargon that is specific to an industry, you might end up detracting top talent who have the right skill sets and experience for the job. So if you’re finding it challenging to write accurate job descriptions here’s how an AI hiring platform can help. Our hiring platform, EVA-REC helps talent acquisition teams write job descriptions that are free of bias. All they’ve got to do is just type in the job title, and in a few seconds, our AI engine will autofill the skills section based on the newest job requirements that are emerging in the marketplace. Therefore, allowing talent acquisition teams to post accurate job posts that will help them attract the right candidates for the job!
AI helps you screen and hire top talent faster
How many hours, days, or weeks does it take you to screen candidates? Whether your talent acquisition team needs to fill a thousand vacancies in a month – an AI-powered video interviewing software can always help. For example, video interviewing software like EVA-SSESS enables talent acquisition teams to assess, evaluate and recruit top talent in a fraction of the time. Where they can interview candidates through video assessment interviews that can be taken at any time or place. Therefore, it makes your first round of screening 80% faster! Not only that, but an AI-powered hiring platform also helps make your screening process a breeze. Where it can intelligently help you match a mass number of resumes with pre-existing job posts or job descriptions that you have. The AI will then rank the candidates from highest to lowest match. Therefore, incredibly saving 90% of your time by helping you spot the most qualified candidates with just a single click!
