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