Automation and AI for Recruitment and the World


Automation and AI

Exciting for many, scary for possibly even more.


First, let’s define automation; changing human labor with machines, computer, and software. This is mainly driven economically. The sum of labor and raw material is smaller with automation after an initial investment as automation increases the levels of speed, consistency, and precision of the process.


The fact is, that industrial automation has been used for years. One of the best examples being the Henry Ford assembly line of the Ford Model T that was finalized as early as 1913. This resulted in a faster production time, thus being able to produce more.


Industrial automation was only the start and excelled when the computer started to take over the world opening up the possibility to create more complicated but more powerful ways to automate. With this, AI’s and Software start to take over or speed up some processes in companies today.

Let’s take recruitment as an example.

AI’s are relieving a huge burden by automating the low-level tasks and provide data to the decision maker, who at this moment in time is still a human. It can help them find candidates in the first place but also decide who they want to invite to have a personal conversation. CV’s are both a blessing and a curse for talent acquisition. They hold all the basic information a recruiter needs to know in order to create a first image of the applicant but it can be very time-consuming.

platform that helps the companies create a profile of what they want, to match the profile of a candidate is the perfect tool to speed up the process.


These new technologies are a bit of a double-edged sword, however. Some only see the destruction of jobs. Others see the creation of new functions and possibilities. Most people see both.


Personally, I can only be excited about what the future has in store for Machine Learning, AI, and automation in general. And it is very much still the future for most industries. It’s in our nature to stick to what works and what we believe or have experienced to work.

Some people shy away from this instead of embracing it and try to “ride the wave” to speak. I think that is important to remember. Some forget there is a middle ground. You don’t have to be the creator or innovator. If you have that ambition, knowledge, or skill then, by all means, go for it. But don’t see it all black and white. Learn about it, learn to work with it. Being a follower is more than okay.


I’ll leave you with some quotes that sum up everything I tried to say in this conclusion:


“Innovation is the change that unlocks new value”
– Jamie Notter


“You don’t have to reinvent the wheel, just to attach it to a new wagon”
– Mark McCormack
