Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been proving to bring great benefits to the way companies are now recruiting for new talents. In the near future, AI is expected to bring a true revolution to businesses practices and to entirely occupy the heart of many global businesses.

The use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been particularly prominent in the Human Resources department.  Nowadays, many businesses are integrating AI solutions to improve and accelerate their recruitment and hiring processes. AI offers numerous possibilities and opportunities for businesses growth due to its ability to navigate through a massive set of data to detect and match patterns.

For businesses, implementing AI solutions into their recruitment process can help recruiters speed up the overall process of searching, selecting, and hiring candidates. By automating repetitive and time-consuming tasks, such as sorting large volumes of resumes or scheduling interviews for potential candidates, AI allows recruiters to save time and focus on other important tasks.

How does AI resume screening works?

AI solutions used for recruitment provide an intelligent candidate screening that uses an algorithm trained to sort out and analyze resumes by finding specific keywords. This algorithm is trained to identify skills and experiences that match with the associated job offers. In other words, to determine if a candidate is suitable for the job, the algorithm analyzes a candidate’s baggage (skills, knowledge, experiences, achievements) and compares it to the job requirements to see if there’s a match. AI solutions also offer the possibility to further expand the analysis of potential candidates by analyzing their online presence and digital footprint to gain a more extensive portrait of the candidate’s history, achievements, and abilities. Thus, recruitment AI solutions can help detect the presence of any inconsistencies and inaccuracies in a candidate’s resume.

Not only can integrating AI into the recruitment process improve the quality of the hiring process and save time and resources for the company, but it can also eliminate through an intelligent pre-screening process, the presence of any interview biases that may unreasonably reject a potentially good candidate from being selected. Even if there’s a lot of ethical issues surrounding the usage of Artificial Intelligence, developing ethical AI tools for recruitment could be the key to overcoming issues like biases and discrimination during the selection process.
