For recruiters, it’s the worst of times, and the best of times.
The world of recruitment is transforming – and fast. Artificial intelligence is at the centre of that change. Here’s the rub. Much of what the recruitment consultant does today will be replaced by machines.
Stay calm. This is actually good news. Huh? Being replaced by a machine is good news? Yes!
Change is our friend. As technology evolves recruitment, the human factor becomes even more valuable in the process. There are critical things that ONLY real people can do in recruitment. The better you get at these aspects, the more successful you will be.
Key in the future-fit recruiters’ toolkit is the ability to sell. The art of persuasion is a human skill. Being able to persuade candidates and clients to say ‘yes’ to our ideas and thinking is at the core of the future-fit recruiters’ differentiation and value proposition.
