Technology Tools for Recruitment: Why Businesses Need Them

This entry was posted in Advice for recruiters, Articles, Job interviews, Uncategorized and tagged , , , , , , on by Andres Herrera.

Businesses looking to hire new talent or fill in gaps in their processes should integrate technology in their daily activities. Technology alleviates some of the burdens on recruitment teams. They also help to report on the hiring process for possible areas of improvement. Here are different technology solutions that recruiters and businesses can use when hiring new employees.

recruitment technologies

Applicant-tracking software

Recruiters who are looking to increase their hiring efficiency can implement cloud-based applicant-tracking software. This software aids recruiting teams with tracking candidates throughout the recruitment process.

Recruiters can use this software to store candidate data and information, track where individuals are in the process, and pull reports on a candidate’s hiring experience. Cloud-based human capital management systems allow stakeholders to access information from anywhere with an internet connection. At the end of the hiring process, these tools can also help recruiters improve future hiring processes by understanding the path taken by successful candidates.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Recruitment

The leading benefits of using AI in the recruitment process are faster responses and management of simpler tasks. AI-powered software can automate the candidate search process by locating people who match a certain set of criteria or assessing candidates’ fit based on their resume and application responses. LinkedIn Recruiter is a popular AI-enabled tool currently being used by hiring teams.

Chatbots are another example of AI technology. They automatically respond to people’s questions and reduce the recruiters’ workload. Quick responses provide candidates with a positive experience while saving precious time for businesses.

Video Interviewing

Video interviewing can connect people seamlessly, regardless of location. Additionally, businesses with remote workers can use the technology to include them in candidate discussions. Video interviewing also helps companies pull from the global talent pool. For example, a business located in New York City can use video conferencing to interview candidates that are continents away. Tools like HireVue allow businesses to schedule and execute remote interviews.

Looking to the Future

As technological advancements and abilities increase, companies and their hiring teams will shift away from mundane tasks to higher-level assignments. AI and other technological advances will reshape how recruiters go through their daily tasks.

Targeted advertising for positions are already showing up in job seeker’s web and social media feeds. But further automation allows advertisers to deliver the right messages at exactly the right times. Natural language processing (NLP) could be implemented into interviews for analysis on fluency, pronunciation, vocabulary usage, and the progression of ideas.

Closing Thoughts

Recruiters have a new teammate in technology tools. Technology will amplify and augment current recruitment practices: AI assists hiring departments with mundane tasks, and applicant tracking software helps recruiters understand where a candidate is in the hiring cycle. Video interviewing assists in bringing in people from across the world together in one central, digital location.

In the future, continued developments and advancements will bring in additional solutions for recruiting teams. Operations will include opportunities for reaching job seekers in new ways, like through social media. Additionally, AI solutions will aid candidate verification and interview. Overall, technology will help recruitment teams with speeding up processes or handling easier tasks.
