Some things just take way longer than they should. I remember spending hours on my computer just to download one song, let alone an entire album. (And sometimes, after waiting for the download bar to fill, it wouldn’t even be the right song.)
Even before that, I had to tape things off of the radio, which took even longer – sitting around waiting for the song I wanted to finally play and then pressing record. Nowadays, thanks to technology, we can access any song we want within seconds, with just one click.
Hiring is similar, in a way. There are so many aspects of hiring that take way longer than they should, from looking through resumes to scheduling interviews. Emails are sent back and forth, you don’t hear back on applications…
It’s time-consuming for the hiring manager and the client alike. I know, I know – preaching to the choir. But just as technology has made it easier to access music, AI scheduling assistants can help make all of us more efficient, yet less than 20% of recruiting teams are using them now.
Do they not know that a calendar bot alone can save you up to 40 hours per year? That’s an entire extra week of work!
So, what’s the big deal? 4 Ways To Use AI
Here’s the bottom line. You need more time to connect with the humans right in front of you. Instead of wasting time digging through candidates’ calendars, you can develop a relationship with your top choices. AI scheduling assistants can save you time, yes, but they can also make the overall experience more beneficial to both you and the candidates.
Candidates want regular updates throughout the hiring process, and AI scheduling assistants can provide them with just that. By learning how to pick up keywords and phrases, AI can keep candidates up to date with their application. Not only will recruiters have a more pleasant time throughout the process, but candidates will, too.
On the recruiter side, RAI is an experimental AI powered recruiting assistant created by HiringSolved. You interact with it just like a human assistant. It can find candidates for your job. It can even help you create and send messages to them. Bonus? Working with RAI is as simple as having a conversation.
Smart recruiters are also using AI scheduling assistants to take care of all of that for you – saving you the hassle and extra time wasted. By comparing calendars, AI scheduling assistants figure everything out without the hassle. They can even suggest what the best times to reach out to candidates are, making the experience better for all parties. This will save you the time it would take you to schedule an appointment yourself, leaving you more time for the important tasks – like actually interacting with your candidates and forming a bond.
AI can even be used to read and respond to emails from candidates, shaving off time spent on tedious tasks. Time-consuming tasks like these can be handed over to computers – when 90% of consumers want to use messaging to communicate with businesses, someone needs to be doing it.
All of this time saved leaves recruiters and hiring managers more time to focus on the aspects of their jobs that technology can never replace: what it means to be human.
