The Role of Artificial Intelligence in Your Job Application

With the rise of technology, artificial intelligence (AI) is changing the way people interact in their daily lives, including in the workplace. Although many might be skeptical about this new technology, AI can be beneficial if you are a recruiter, a manager, or someone looking for a job.

The answer is simple. Recruiters receive tonnes of CVs every day, which is probably the reason your CV never made it to the top of the pile. Going over a pile of up to 500+ CVs to find the right candidate can take up to 50% of the recruiters time. It is for this reason that HR departments are now starting to utilise artificial intelligence (AI) to help them speed up this process and find the most suitable candidate.

According to Technopedia, AI is an area of computer science that emphasises time creation of intelligent machines that work and react like human. AI can participate in activities that involve speech recognition, learning, planning, and problem-solving. It is probable that you have already used AI, for example, Siri, an intelligent assistant installed in all iPhones which responds to voice commands.
