Have you ever spent an afternoon with a hiring manager when s/he is in the trenches of screening?
Have you ever seen what it is like to pick the best candidate- one who is not just fit for the current job requirement, but one who has the right attitude, values, approach, and alignment with the company?
Have you ever experienced why screening carries so much responsibility – because its impact goes all the way into attrition rates and employee productivity reports?
It is hard. Very hard. It is a tight-rope walk between now and tomorrow. It is a scramble for getting the best outcomes when one is juggling the tick-tock urgency of today with the pressure of future severe implications.
AI to the rescue
But thankfully, a lot of these wrinkles have been ironed out by AI. Today, a host of tools can make this tight-rope walk smooth and fun as a skateboard evening – provided one knows how to glide with AI. This is done because some well-crafted tools understand the real challenges that a hiring team faces:

Screening the new-age way, the HR-centric way
All this is not fantasy – but a reality. According to the 2019 State of AI in Talent Acquisition Report by HR Research Institute, the usage of AI in Talent Acquisition is expected to jump most in the area of assessments. It is expected to help organizations in prioritizing resumes and applications, in matching candidates to open positions, in the area of selection, as a means of filtering through resumes more efficiently, and in helping to match candidate qualifications to job needs. It looks like AI can enormously increase the speed of recruitment and raise the productivity of the recruitment function.
These expectations become even more pronounced in the time-pressed and complex screening task. HR professionals are looking for an improved ability to identify qualified candidates – as their top AI-related wish. They want to do this with a good alignment to higher quality and quantity—which are frequently viewed as mutually exclusive business goals but are the most widely-cited desired outcomes.
Thanks to holistic and precise AI tools like Oto_Code, all this is being achieved in reality by smart hiring managers.
Spend some time with a manager who is using AI for screening, and you will find out how smooth and seamless their job has turned because of AI. The stressful afternoon is now full of excitement, engagement, and real progress.
