Category : Work & Business
In modern world we need a little help from bots, even in areas such as looking for a job or new employees recruitment. The chatbot is a new tool to improve the recruitment process not only for the employer, but also for the job seeker.
Chatbots in recruitment
Chatbot is a great support in the process of recruitment. Its biggest advantage is the conversational way of interaction. Chatbots communicate freely with their interlocutors via chat located on the website, in social media, in dedicated applications, e.g. for translations, and messengers. They’re very helpful for employers as well as the candidates. As the virtual assistants, they can also train employees and collect basic information about their needs and obligations.
Recruitment chatbot takes over the most mechanical aspect of the recruiter’s work, which is the selection and preselection of applications coming from candidates. Even so, the chatbot won’t make any recruiter unemployed, because the key stage of recruitment is always the direct contact of the recruiter with the candidate.
Using recruitment chatbot does not add any additional stage to the whole recruitment process. From the recruiter’s perspective, chatbot is like an automatic assistant collecting recruitment leads (basic information about candidates) and enabling the employer to make a well-thought-out decision about inviting the best candidates to the recruitment meetings. On the other hand, from the candidate’s perspective, the recruitment chatbot replaces the first phase of job search, which is searching for interesting job offers. With a chatbot the whole process is easier and much more effective. Providing great efficiency and functionality, it’s a complete game changer for every candidate and every employer on the job market.
