Four things to look for in an AI recruiting tool


In today’s tech-driven world, HR is incomplete without recruiting solutions powered by artificial intelligence (AI). These AI tools, integrated into the recruiter’s sourcing workflows and applicant tracking system (ATS), automate some aspects of candidate review, reduce labor-intensive manual processes, and much more.

However, the greatest problem in hiring new employees is screening applicants swiftly and fairly. For 52% of talent acquisition leaders, the most difficult element of recruiting is sifting through a huge application pool to find the best prospects. The problem has only gotten worse because so many job sites offer one-click applications.

As a result, recruiting technology is essential in today’s job market, where great candidates get snapped up quickly. By integrating an AI recruiting tool into your talent search, you can save a considerable amount of time spent. No more searching and sorting through many applicants. Get access to a wider range of candidate profiles, with the help of your AI assistant.

The catch is, not all recruiting technologies are created equal. So how do you decide which recruiting tool is best for you?  Here are four things to look for in an AI recruiting tool.

Ease of Use

There is nothing more frustrating than purchasing another digital tool or integrating a new system, and not understanding how to navigate it. When choosing an AI recruiting system, keep it simple. The easier it is to navigate a new tool, the more likely it is for you to use it at its full capacity and get more bang for your buck. Is the dashboard interface easy to navigate? Are the features easy to identify? Is there a feature that can optimize my job description and automate emails for me?

Remember, your AI recruiting tool should help you work smarter, not harder, and list all qualified candidates from all your sources in one list with a great interface. The ideal AI tool should allow you to:

  • post a job
  • review and shortlist candidates
  • easily find resumes and contact information

No more duplicate posts, lists, or candidates, when you switch to better recruiting software to handle your daily needs!

Integrated with your ATS and workflows 

Another feature you should consider in a recruiting tool is its ability to integrate with your existing applicant tracking system and daily workflow. Your recruiting software should not be another tool you have to somehow fit into your sourcing workflowWith the right hiring tool, you can easily pull all the candidates you source directly into your ATS. As a result, this allows you the opportunity to focus on what really matters, actual recruiting! 

Diversity built-in your AI recruiting tool

Diversifying your workforce and nurturing a more inclusive workplace is a top business priority for many organizations. However, diversifying your talent search the traditional wayby adding premium diverse job sources, can get expensive and complicated. Look for a recruiting platform that supports your diversity goals right out of the box, without adding new tech or additional job boards.

But diversity recruiting alone can’t build a more inclusive organization. You have to support these efforts with programs that new hires see an inclusive company after they’re onboarded. Otherwise, your diverse new hires will simply find another position with another company.  

Integrated candidate communication dashboard 

As if searching, sourcing, finding, diversifying, and managing your candidate pool were not enough; communicating with prospects seems to be a completely different ball game. But in today’s job environment, if you delay communication, you could lose a candidate. Streamline some of those early communication efforts by letting your AI recruiting assistant help. An efficient hiring tool does this best by giving you a communication dashboard that connects you with candidates and automates personalized messages. Even a chatbot feature will save you tons of time and energy to dedicate to other critical tasks.
