More and more companies are using artificial intelligence to save time in their recruitment process. Its advanced information technology helps them find the perfect candidates more quickly. It may also be a great opportunity for jobseekers as it broadens their job perspectives and proposes job offers that are more relevant to their profile.

What are the effects of artificial intelligence on the job search?

Don’t you ever get tired of spending hours reviewing thousands of job offers before finding the perfect job? Artificial intelligence might be the solution to this problem. Indeed, the recent progress made in the information technology field is rather promising. For example, websites such as Jobijoba are able, thanks to their sophisticated search engines, to sort through and select job offers according to, not only your past experiences and education, but also your soft skills and personality traits. This precise technology helps you find relevant job offers suited to your profile and aspirations.

In addition to saving you a lot of time, these search engines can show you job offers that you would never have thought of applying for. By detecting your personal qualities and abilities, the search engine will find job offers that correspond to your personality and not necessarily to your professional field. For example, if you have had many positions with leadership responsibilities in the past, the search engine will understand that you like to be in charge and will suggest jobs that require this type of personal characteristic. It broadens significantly the scope of job seekers’ research and increases the chances of finding a job.

What is useful for job seekers is also very useful for recruiters; artificial intelligence offers interesting opportunities for human resources management as well.

How is artificial intelligence used in human resources?

When it comes to recruiting new employees, big companies often have to face an overwhelming number of applications and the recruitment process can be very long and tedious. That’s when artificial intelligence can be a great help!

On websites such as Yatedo talent, the recruiter can type a specific profile in the engine’s search bar. Then, algorithms analyse all the open sources on the web, mainly online CVs and professional social networks, such as LinkedIn. In just one click, the engine is able to propose a list of relevant profiles, thus helping the recruiter skip through the whole search and sorting process.

As said before, the search engine can deduce a candidate’s soft skills and personality traits. One way is by cross-checking CV information and detecting passionate profiles. For instance, if a candidate has practiced web development as a hobby but has a degree in history, he will be considered passionate by the search engine because he is a versatile, self-taught individual. This can also help the recruiter to find specific profiles well-suited to a certain job.

Does this mean that artificial intelligence will replace human resources managers? Thomas Allaire, creator of Jobijoba, says that this information technology was made precisely to help human resources managers save time by skipping the profile search so they can focus on the job interview. As the technology cannot replace the sensibility and human intuition of the recruiter, artificial intelligence actually assists in providing a more humanized recruitment process.
