As if interviewing for a new job was not hard enough, now we have a new process to work with and around – Artificial Intelligence (AI).
You would have heard something about AI here and there, it really is the latest news buzzing around. How AI is changing the world…or taking over it… depending on what you read and hear. Whilst it is true, AI such as ChatGPT, Virtual Agents and Biometrics is taking over our daily lives, seemingly to aid us with various tasks such as information sharing, writing reports by converting speech into helpful formates, connecting with others and decision making. We can in turn see how AI is changing the recruitment process and fast. Regardless whether we believe it is for the best or not, it is happening. Both parties, recruiters and job seekers use this plateform to improve their process. The question is, who benefits more, the hiring manager or candidate?
AI can be very useful to individuals who are seeking a new job role, such as assisting with resume writing and even providing best responses to interview skills. Nonetheless, the technology does indeed go both ways and is increasingly being used in the job search process for hiring managers by helping sift and sort through resumes, filter through interview responses and even go as far as facial recognition tools to determine candidates physical behaviour when answering questions. So whilst yes, you can use the AI tool to respond back to the AI itself, as a job seekers you need to first tailor your resume and applications to include relevant keywords and phrases, which will be recognised by AI algorithms. Nail that, you will be invited to interview. Then, once you do get the interview, you need to pass the process and provide key responses the AI is programmed to filter. Without that, you wont even have a chance to interview with a physical person.
