The AI tools for HR Managers and Recruiters

If anyone is feeling anxious about all the AI conversation in the news and around town, I’ve been reading articles that say don’t be – a lot of it we have all been using for ages anyway, and the new stuff is only here to help us…as Chatbot told me, “AI should be used as a tool to augment human decision-making rather than replacing it. Human oversight and ethical considerations are crucial to ensure fairness and mitigate potential biases of AI.” !!

Therefore, I took a look at the various types and benefits of AI in the recruitment process; you are probably already using AI for some tasks, but there are some advanced tools that might be of interest below!

Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS): This is popular with recruiters, software that automates administrative tasks. It helps manage job postings, CV screening, candidate tracking, and scheduling interviews.

CV Parsing: This extracts relevant information from CVs, such as work experience, skills and education and converts it into a structured format to help the human recruiter to analyze candidate profiles quickly!

Chatbots: These can be integrated into company websites or messaging platforms to engage with candidates, answer frequently asked questions and provide initial screening.

Video Interviewing and Assessment: Pre-recorded video interviews can be analyzed by AI, looking at candidates’ facial expressions, body language, and speech patterns to assess soft skills, personality traits, and cultural fit.

Skill Assessment: There are AI skill assessment tests and simulations (using chatbot) which can evaluate candidates’ technical or job-specific skills.

Predictive Analytics: AI can analyze large amounts of data from previous recruitment processes to identify patterns and make predictions about the likelihood of a candidate’s success.

Diversity and Bias Mitigation: AI will analyze candidate information, focusing solely on qualifications and skills. It will also identify and eliminate biased language in job descriptions.

Most recruiters I think will by now be using the ATS and Parsing, and the systems are continuously improving; the analytics to deal with the Diversity and Bias is obviously a great tool; but it would be interesting to know how many recruiters are turning to AI for the whole interviewing process and decision making!
