Why Should Recruiters
Consider 'Hiring' a ChatBot?

By Shali Gabisonia, Product Lead
Not long ago, LinkedIn has surveyed several hundreds of companies. Respondents have reported that the volume of recruitment grows and will not decline; at the same time, the number and size of recruitment teams will remain practically the same.
On top that, 61% of survey participants said that their companies plan to reduce their recruitment budgets or keep these at the same level.

Many professionals discuss:

- What should we do in the context of scarce resources and growing demand?
- How to maintain the due quality of selection and assessment?
- How can we raise the productivity of TA teams?
The development of chatbots by no means implies the intention of companies to minimise the in-person communication with candidates.
And this is the moment where recruitment chatbots can take the stage greeted by applause, then be forgotten, and warmly welcomed again.

However, one thing we can be completely sure of is that over the past two years, AI-based technology and social networks have made a gigantic step forward.

Therefore, if you continue to feel sceptical about spending time on implementing these technologies, do not waste your time on scepticism. Keep it for other situations. «Invite» a recruitment chatbot to your team and make him an indispensable part of your crew in just a couple of weeks.
