Recruitment’s Tech Makeover

August 17, 2023

Recruiting is getting a tech makeover with AI, blockchain, and virtual reality on the scene.

Imagine this: workplaces that have the superpower to anticipate their workforce’s every need, references and credentials are a piece of cake to verify, and a mind-blowing virtual tour that you can embark on with just a click, no matter where or when you are. 

It’s like stepping into a futuristic sci-fi flick, right? Except that it’s not, because with the extraordinary powers of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Blockchain, and Virtual Reality (VR) platforms, this awe-inspiring reality is not only possible, it’s happening now. 

Recruitment has had a tech makeover, and both job seekers and employers can benefit from all this new technology, keep reading to find out how…

Job Seekers – Embrace New Technologies

Job seekers, are you tired of the resume rat race, only to have your applications rejected by soulless robot recruiters? Well, fear not. The rise of blockchain technology has brought about a revolutionary solution that will make your credentials unalterable and highly secure. Say goodbye to those exaggerated Excel skills on your resume – now you can prove your worth with confidence!

LinkedIn has introduced a game-changing feature called ‘LinkedIn Skills Assessments’. It allows job seekers to take tests and prove their proficiency in various skills, with the results prominently displayed on their profiles. No more guesswork or empty claims, you can get active on LinkedIn and let your skills speak for themselves.

Forget filling out multiple online forms to apply for a role, companies who are on the pulse will have resume upload options and connect to your LinkedIn profile to compile information. It’s an easy way to gauge whether potential employers are going to provide you with the latest tools to do your job.

The push to find a job is starting to feel like playing an exhilarating video game. Who knew job hunting could be this fun? Let’s not forget the incredible benefits these tools bring – less bias, more efficiency and a whole new level of innovation to feed that grand need for quick action.

Employers – Get On Board The Tech Train

You can bid farewell to the hassle of in-person interviews. With remote interviewing tools, you can now awkwardly stare at potential employees from the comfort of your own home. It’s like having a window into their world, minus the actual window.

Hold tight, because this statistic will blow your mind – a survey by PWC found that a staggering 78% of job seekers said that a company’s use of innovative technologies during the hiring process would positively influence their decision to accept a job offer. Embrace the tech, and you’ll attract the best.

The time-saving marvels continue – according to a study by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), using video interviews in the recruitment process can reduce the time-to-hire by an average of 9-13 days. It’s like hitting the fast-forward button on the hiring timeline.

Oh, and let’s not forget about artificial intelligence (AI) for candidate screening. It’s like having your own recruiting oracle, except it’s an algorithm. We’ll always need a human touch in recruiting, there’s nothing in the works with AI that can provide human intuition and empathy, two elements that can make or break a recruiter.

But why stop with just the recruitment process? Take your onboarding experience to the next level with virtual reality. Yes, you read that right! Strap your new hires into a headset and let them unleash their inner superheroes while they learn the ropes.

The Future of Recruitment is Now

Finding a job that fits your skills, needs and wants is only going to get easier for job seekers as more and more companies embrace new technologies.

But if you’re an employer still recruiting with outdated methods, it’s time to level up your recruitment strategy so you don’t miss out on the best. Embrace the future with TMR Recruitment, we’ll help you navigate this brave new world of recruiting and elevate your game to unimaginable heights. 

The future is now.
