The recent advancements in AI technology have prompted a lot of discussion surrounding how artificial intelligence may affect the labor market. Many fear that their jobs will soon be replaced by their hyper-efficient robot counterparts. What isn’t discussed as prominently, however, are the ways AI might help job seekers land a new position, and in turn, how artificial intelligence muddies the waters of candidate pools.
In a competitive job market like the one we’re currently in, employers need to find ways to streamline the hiring process and decrease the size of their ‘yes’ and ‘maybe’ pools. Unfortunately, with the help of AI, unqualified candidates can send out resumes in droves and sneak past at least the first few rounds of recruitment.
This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Having more applicants can lead to a wider, more diverse range of candidates, but it also makes it much harder for recruiters and hiring managers to decide who to interview.
For the job seeker, AI is a huge time saver, but for some employers, it can present a hiring nightmare.
In and of itself, this last example may seem harmless, but when combined with the first two, you can start to see how someone who is truly unqualified could end up making it through every round of the recruitment process with the help of AI. In the end, they may even be offered the job.
Some recruiters also use chatbots on the company’s website or automated email responses to “provide candidates with immediate help and answer their questions about the job or application process. This allows recruiters to engage with candidates more effectively and save time by automating routine tasks.” – Jack Kelly of Forbes
That’s when another resource may come in handy—recruitment firms. Navigating this increasingly competitive hiring market and trying to sift through hundreds of applications for each open position is only going to get more complicated as AI advances further. There are even examples of people using AI to generate entirely fake resumes just to see how far into the hiring process the bot itself can go.
