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.
