Automated shortlisting works with recruiters to save time

Automation isn’t here to replace recruiters. Automating more workflow steps gives back precious time to your recruiters to build personal relationships with candidates.

Shortlisting can be a labor-intensive, time-consuming process. But this can cost you not only resources, but placements when candidates are placed faster by someone else. AI matching can help recruiters generate shortlists, but recruiters should always be in control and decide which candidates are best based on their knowledge and experience.

Shortlisting helps recruiters get back to candidates faster than the competition

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.

“We have reduced our time-to-resource vacancies by about 50%. Less experienced recruiters are able to work vacancies beyond their knowledge and comfort zones, beyond Boolean, as Textkernel’s technology builds the searches automatically, and ranks the most suitable candidates.” - John Cox, Director UK, Europe & Middle East at CCL
