Glossary > Automated Recruiting
Automated recruiting is growing in popularity among busy recruiters who are looking to save time on their daily tasks. With today’s automation and AI technology, almost any step of the recruiting process can be automated. From sourcing, to scheduling interviews, and onboarding, automation helps cut out tedious tasks and free up time for TA professionals to focus on connecting with candidates and making high quality hires.
Any tools that recruiters and TA professionals use to automate a task during the hiring process are automated recruitment tools. Automation and artificial intelligence play a big role in making these tasks more efficient in bringing in the right talent – and they’re fun to use, too. Below are some of the most popular automated tools in the world of recruiting.
It’s no secret that recruiters and TA professionals are bogged down with requisitions, unanswered messages, and pressure to hire the right talent as quickly as possible. Recruitment automation brings efficiency and improvement to the recruiting process, benefiting both recruiters and candidates. Automation built into your recruiting process will identify what can be improved, which is a win in an always-changing job market!
The key to automating any hiring process is to identify a baseline and then to set goals and metrics for the process. Start by tracking some common metrics such as time-to-hire and applicant conversion rate. After laying out goals and metrics, utilize automation and AI software to upgrade a process or task – for example, implementing automatic scheduling for interviews. Be sure to measure the progress over time to see what has improved and what improvements could be made in the future.
Tip: When adding automation to multiple processes and tasks, start with only one at a time to keep a close eye on the pains and wins of the new process. Then, scale your efforts!
Automation improves the hiring process and allows recruiters to fill roles faster, communicate with candidates where they are, and hire top talent in a difficult market. To learn more about how automation can make recruiting smarter, check out Jobvite’s blog and resource library!
