2:45 PM Reimagine the Candidate Journey: How Chatbots, Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Reality are Ramping Up the Speed of Recruitment

Job candidates now desire the customer experience. And that means tech — from recruiting to onboarding. Candidates now expect career site portals that narrate a company’s culture through video, virtual reality and social media that offers candid employee-centered narratives of a company’s culture. With many people living much of their lives through their phones, recruiters use video interviews, texting and even chatbots to reach candidates at a scale not seen before. Powered by Artificial Intelligence, several apps can analyze thousands of resumes in seconds while scouring social media databases to build a customized talent pipeline specific to niche, industry, job and region. Ultimately, this new tech-enabled process is about being available to interact with a candidate on their terms, rather than just meet the immediate needs of recruiters.

• Video interviewing technology can analyze facial expressions for levels of empathy, motivation and engagement
• Other apps deploy AI and algorithms to measure a candidate’s core competences in grit, curiosity and teamwork that aren’t readily visible in a resume or standard interview
• Game-changer case studies of how video interviewing speeds up the hiring of frontline workers while text-based recruiting is quickly supplanting the traditional college job fair game
• Case study of how one company developed a mobile-first job app that reduced both the application process to just ten minutes while significantly decreasing their time to hire
