Workplace Application:
By leveraging AI to improve communication between job seekers and employers, you can compress your hiring timeline and fill open jobs more quickly. 

Artificial intelligence (AI) has set the stage for the third wave of online recruiting technology. The first wave was taking the classified ad model and moving it online: employers posted a job and hoped the right candidate would see it. The second wave was implementing AI-driven candidate matching. That’s where the industry has been focused for the last few years. The third wave is all about optimizing the post-match experience. Job seekers often feel like they are applying in a vacuum, with no visibility into where they stand in the process and not knowing if their application was even received or reviewed. This is what we call the “resume black hole.” By leveraging AI to improve communication between job seekers and employers, the hiring timeline can be compressed, allowing job seekers to get hired faster, and employers to fill open jobs more quickly. In this session, ZipRecruiter’s CEO in a fireside chat format, shares data-based insights on the communication pain points that affect today’s job seekers and shares ways that AI can help you to address those issues.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how AI-driven recruiting technology is expanding beyond matching to address the communication needs of job seekers and HR professionals.
  • Discover the communication pain points which can push job seekers away from your open roles. 
  • Learn how AI can programmatically address those communication pain points, and help HR professionals hire faster.
