With the recent news that IBM (among others) have stopped hiring for roles that could be done with AI, how long will it be until recruiters are gone too?
Let's talk about what a recruiter does. It's a difficult job!
Responsibilities can vary depending on the organization and specific job requirements but there are some common responsibilities:
Job analysis and planning
Job postings and advertising
Sourcing and candidate identification
Resume screening and candidate evaluation
Interviewing and selection
Candidate relationship management
Offer negotiation and closing
Applicant tracking and documentation
Market research and industry knowledge
Compliance and legal adherence
These responsibilities require effective communication, organizational skills, the ability to work with multiple stakeholders, and a thorough understanding of the organization's goals and hiring needs.
Now when we talk about AI and what it could take over, it's clear to see that the one aspect it can't replace is the recruiter him/herself. The human that sits in the middle of all those responsibilities is impossible to replace. Yes, you can get AI to write you a job description, or even filter out the very best candidates with your requirements in minutes (Oh hey there Syft 😉), but at the end of the day AI cannot replace the human interactions and human relationships.
Whenever I speak with recruiters they always light up when they tell me of the people they've found jobs for. Recruiters are "people" people - so don't be afraid that AI is coming for your job.
Let AI do the tedious stuff so you can spend your time doing what you love - building relationships and getting great people into wonderful jobs.
