AI Recruiting – Artificial Intelligence in Recruiting and Career Coaching

We’re in what’s known as the War for Talents. In the HR sector, HR professionals are increasingly looking for the perfect candidate. These processes can be increasingly automated and digitally supported in the future. The future of HR is artificial intelligence. So far, HR technologies have been used particularly to increase efficiency and save costs, but current developments in the field of artificial intelligence enable more intelligent and intuitive personnel selection and management. AI Recruiting will enable HR managers to combine analog and digital HR management tools and achieve better results in all phases of the employee lifecycle – from recruiting to career planning.

AI Recruiting during the application process

Every day, personnel managers, especially in large companies, receive hundreds of applications on the table. With such a large amount of information, there is usually not even a minute left for a single resume. For this reason, in this phase of recruiting, some promising candidates often fall by the wayside and the company misses a potentially promising employee. In times of artificial intelligence this does not have to happen anymore, because for the pre-selection and the analysis of the incoming digital application folders the human resource is no longer necessary.

AI systems can make the application process more efficient and successful for both the applicant and the recruiter. For example, companies are already using solutions that analyze incoming documents according to certain criteria and prepare the best candidates for the HR specialist. This allows the HR specialist to take more time for the individual applicants without having to struggle through mountains of application folders. Another solution is chat bots in the application process, which instead of the classic online form in a virtual interview the candidate on the tooth feel and the data of the candidate prepare. The virtual recruiters can compare the company’s ideas with the potential employee’s skills in real time and suggest the right positions.


Application interviews with the help of artificial intelligence

Video interviews are nothing new in the HR industry. In the past, they have increased the efficiency of job interviews and made decentralized recruiting possible. However, manual processing is still a considerable amount of time and effort. Current AI systems make it possible to support the analysis of the videos or even to conduct the entire interview on behalf of the client.

Thus, the recorded audio tracks of recruiting interviews can be transcribed and analyzed. The artificial intelligence evaluates the candidate’s answers on the basis of certain predefined parameters and interprets the facial expressions and gestures of the future employee in real time. Since these are learning systems, as the number of interviews increases new parameters can be added to the AI-supported interview.


Career coaching by means of artificial intelligence

Once you have found the right employee, you need to offer him or her a career path. Most employees want to grow and develop while working for a company. Artificial intelligence can evaluate the potential of individual employees on the basis of the data they have collected with their consent and suggest the best training opportunities to help them progress in their careers.

AI systems in companies should help employees to show new perspectives and accompany them on their career path in a target-oriented and intelligent way. Some companies now use so-called AI career assistants who coach their employees and point out networking and further training opportunities. They are thus a constant companion on the employee’s way through his daily work.


Artificial intelligence in HR is still in its infancy, but in a few years it will become one of the central standards of personnel management. AI Recruiting via Deep Learning and Chatbots will make the daily work of many personnel and recruiters easier and give them the opportunity to focus more on the human component of the process.
