Recruitment and chatbots

With the evolution of artificial intelligence in the tech world, we are now getting quite used to chatbots. It has made lives smarter and simpler. In fact, as per Gartner reports, it is predicted that by the year 2020, the average person will have more conversations with bots than with their spouse.

When we talk about the hiring process, candidates hate getting delayed response from the organization i.e. they are left hanging after their interviews and have to wait for long to get their results which create a negative image of your organization. Thereby, they prefer joining some other organization which reverts them quickly. This is where chatbots make an entry. Chatbots will help in performing the tedious HR tasks and even enhance the candidate's experience. Not only this, people are even using chatbots to give a quick response to candidates' queries.
