Hiring in the last five years has evolved because of technological improvements across the world as technology has made the process more effective. Tasks that companies needed to manually accomplish have all become automated and technology-driven.
In this blog post, I want to point out four ways that technology has made the hiring process more effective.
Access to Candidates Across the World
Technology gives recruiters access to candidates all over the world. In the past, recruiters were restricted to hiring employees close to their locations but that has changed.
We now have different work formats like Remote, Hybrid, all of which are words that didn’t use to exist a few years ago.
Hiring managers can now try to hire staff from different parts of the world and have instant access to their records.
Conduct Interviews From Anywhere
The growth of technology has made it possible for hiring managers to conduct interviews from anywhere in the world via tools like Zoom, Meet, Teams, etc
In-person interviews have reduced drastically because of technology. While they still exist, they are now reserved for final stages of the interview process, allowing companies to interview as many people as possible without worrying about the logistics and cost implications.
Easier to gain skills
Skills are easier to acquire online now, making it easy for recruiters to find the right candidate faster.
Traditional schools used to be the only options available to workers in the past when they wanted to acquire skills. Technology has changed that.
With technology has come an influx of online learning platforms like Coursera, EdX, Udemy, and more, making it easy, fast and affordable for people to acquire relevant job skills.
Makes screening fast and effective
Through unique set of tools and platforms, tech has made it possible to screen applicants in minutes, fastracking the recruitment process.
Before technology, hiring managers had to manually pore through hundreds or thousands of CVs to determine their eligibility. That has changed.
The Applicant Tracking System (ATS) is a technology that screens CVs based on set parameters, making it possible to get only the best from the pack.
