Technology continues to change exponentially and at the same time it continues to change all areas of business and industry, and the Recruitment Industry is no exception. Many organizations have already changed their recruitment process by adopting technologies like Applicant Tracking System and Recruiting Software. Recruiters, on the other hand, are evolving as well, as they know they have to keep up with the trends to survive.
Most of us will agree that we recruiters are still manually entering candidate details for making synopsis, trackers and Applicant Tracking System.
Recently I got an opportunity to check out lots of Application Tracking Systems. Every ATS is designed with specific objective – Automation, Analytics or even Integration. Every recruiter/stakeholder in recruitment process has a specific interest in ATS. As a recruitment professional, I have zeroed down to following 7 features which every recruiter will love to have in any ATS
Recruitment as a function is evolving. The right use of technology has become a necessity to make our hiring more accurate and efficient. Many companies have already started using Data Analytics as their next big move to improve their hiring. Getting the right resource at the right time is the key for any organization.
This is in continuation to my earlier article Artificial Intelligence, hiring & you.
After putting so much effort in calculating the Suitability Score, we later realized that it is just a part of the entire gamut of improved and cost-effective hiring. Also, we observed that candidates are very smart when it comes to writing their resumes. Sometimes, they even use paid services to create an impressive resume. Just calculating their suitability score based on the information provided in the resume wouldn’t be a complete solution.
Recently, I read an article. The author of this article, Recruitment industry will DIE in 2018, threw some light on how Machine Learning is picking up and thus, how many organizations are opting to use it to make their hiring seamless. We, recruiters, need to evolve and prepare ourselves for this change if we want to remain relevant. Some very good examples were cited by the author and; as expected; there were mixed reactions from the readers. Few agreed and others had a different perspective on this.
