Are You Incorporating Technology Into Your Recruitment Process? You Could Be Scaring Job Seekers Away

Nexxt recently conducted a national survey of more than 6,000 job seekers, which revealed that job seekers are concerned that technology could take over the interview process. The majority of respondents (56%) said technology has already made the interview process too impersonal, with more than half reporting that commonly used video technologies like Skype interfere with a hiring manager’s ability to accurately evaluate a candidate’s soft skills. As video becomes common place and new technologies such as virtual reality (VR) and artificial intelligence (AI) make their way into the interview process, job seekers are even more anxious about advanced technologies’ role in determining if they get hired.

[Excerpted from recruitingtrends]

New tools and features may help mid-sized companies build a stronger talent pipeline.

Job boards are the second-most popular means of recruiting behind employee referrals, and many companies still find the best talent through this channel.

When I was a kid, I wanted to be bilingual, I still wish I was but lucky for me there’s an app for that. Traveling to a foreign country doesn’t seem as intimidating anymore. In theory I could simply speak into an app and my words could be translated to the cab driver in Spain or the train conductor in Italy or the street vendor in Vietnam. It’s amazing what these mobile devices in our pockets have given us, but it’s also sad to think about what they have taken away.

No longer do you need to talk to a person to make plans—you send a text. You don’t have to call to make a reservation—you click a button. And you don’t have to even call to order a pizza anymore—you send a pizza emoji. Communicating is completely different now, thanks to technology, and while so many things are better because of it, the art of communication is dying—especially when it comes to the world of work.
