Step 1: Automated shortlisting isn’t about replacing recruiters
Automated shortlisting is about helping recruiters find top talent quicker, not replacing them. As with any industry that has embraced automation, blending “machine intelligence” with “human intelligence” is key.
Automated shortlisting matches your job description to candidates based on the entire vacancy, rather than just keywords or phrases. This way many (if not all) synonyms and related terms are added to the query to bridge the language gap between how hiring managers write job descriptions and how candidates write CV/resumes. This leaves you with a broad candidate shortlist, which you can then narrow based on your knowledge and experience in step 2.
Step 2: Recruiters in control to make the difficult decisions
With an automated shortlist generated, recruiters can then tackle the difficult job of assigning importance to the various parts of the search, and discover the nuance of the position from both the hiring manager and potential candidates. This way, recruiters save hours of shortlisting candidate supply and can focus on finding the best fit from a list of good matches.
Automated shortlisting has the primary goal of saving recruiters time, with bonus points for finding candidates recruiters may have missed. But “recruiters” is still the most important word in that sentence.
