How to Avoid Extinction: The Role of AI in Recruiting
We are still in the early days of AI in recruiting. AIRS will review what is happening now and where there are opportunities for recruiters. There exists technology that can predict what an applicant might do on their first day as an employee, products that scan social media profiles and predict which candidates are likely to switch jobs, algorithms that write job descriptions aimed at improving gender diversity but what can’t AI accomplish in recruiting. Where are the opportunities for today’s recruiter to keep themselves marketable? What you will learn in this session: • Current Trends in Hiring using AI • How AI is improving the sourcing, interviewing and on-boarding process • The limitations of AI in the recruiting process • Where recruiters can provide value in a world of AI

All of these skills involve persuasion.

Roundtable Discussions
Is technology replacing us? How is technology making your work better/easier or worse/harder? Which tech tools do you use most frequently? And which have disappointed you? What’s new on your technology horizon? What is the “next big thing”? We know that candidate engagement is challenging. How do you build rapport with candidates in your first interaction? And how do you enhance that relationship as candidates progress through the search process? Imagine that you arrive at your office in the morning and stand around all day long doing nothing at all. Exactly what would happen in your firm? Specifically, what would not get done
