IT is facing significant talent shortages, and new human resources AI talent recruiting systems are touted as being able to help. How do these systems work, and are they effective?
The purpose of artificial intelligence hiring and talent scouting systems is to reduce the amount of work that HR or IT conducts in the activities of talent seeking, candidate evaluation and hiring.
For example, if you’re looking for a senior project manager, it’s not uncommon to receive 300 or 400 resumes. All these candidates are applying because they believe they have the experience and the requisite skills to do the job you want to fill. However, unless you have an effective way of narrowing the funnel to a much-reduced number of candidates, you will have a long and tedious recruiting process that could last weeks or even months before it culminates in a hire.
AI can help with upfront resume evaluations because of its ability to rapidly analyze and sift through resumes, identifying the key experiences and job skills you are looking for. AI can even use machine learning (ML) to further improve its accuracy and its performance as it gains its own experience while reviewing data.
