Chatbots and virtual assistants are becoming more common in the screening process as well. Once used only as a marketing or customer care tool, chatbots can now help recruiters by actually conducting parts of the interview.
Virtual assistants can gather simple information like graduation year and school and also ask a series of questions to determine candidate qualifications. These questions can be built to depend on each other by using logic rules. For example, when candidates answer a question one way, the AI can branch off into related questions, or move on to other areas.
Finally, virtual assistants can also help the recruit by answering common questions or keeping the candidate updated on the process. This will free the recruiting team to spend more time with each candidate and ask more complex questions.
