Technology driven recruitment process automation to improve recruitment efficiency
With the continuous development and improvement of artificial intelligence and big data technology, its application in online recruitment has gradually deepened. AI technology has penetrated into the bottom logic of recruitment. Machine learning, semantic analysis, algorithms and other technologies have gone deep into each stage of recruitment and played an important role, which has greatly helped each role in the recruitment industry chain. First, personnel post matching. AI's help to job seekers is reflected in that AI accurately analyzes the target positions of job seekers through the dialogue information and delivery behavior with job seekers, so as to recommend relevant information for job seekers to choose. AI's help to employers is reflected in the reprocessing of published job descriptions and the screening of suitable candidates in the platform library according to job requirements.

With such innovative recruitment products as the carrier, enterprises can reach a wider group of talents in a relatively short time, and more effectively connect employers and job seekers.
IIIIn the future, the technology application in the recruitment field will be more mature, and all platforms will jointly lead the development of the industry
The core logic of the recruitment platform is to help enterprise employers and job seekers make accurate job matching. The main mode is that enterprises publish job information on the recruitment platform, and job seekers send their resumes. However, the Internet era is an era of rapid development and rapid iteration of models. Many recruitment platforms will use technology to develop more forms of recruitment based on the core recruitment logic, such as creating a new interaction mode between employers and job seekers, such as using AI to create intelligent chat machines to communicate with job seekers.
In order to solve the pain points of recruitment methods and efficiency, the recruitment platform can focus on technology and constantly innovate recruitment methods. For example, before recruitment, job seekers are encouraged to enrich their resumes in the form of short videos; In recruitment, the evaluation of candidate characteristics is accelerated through live broadcast, VR, social interaction and other ways to improve recruitment efficiency; After recruitment, use AI technology to evaluate the ability of job seekers and give feedback to enterprises. This series of technology applications does not replace the core position of HR in recruitment, but frees HR from repetitive screening work, leaving more energy to create more value for enterprise talent recruitment and training.
There are still pain points in the recruitment industry in terms of precise matching of people and posts, improvement of recruitment efficiency, job seekers' job search feedback, etc. The purpose of technology application is to promote the reform of the recruitment industry, accurately identify the matching of people and posts, improve recruitment efficiency, personalized job search feedback, etc. Although the application of technology in the recruitment industry is at an immature stage, it can be predicted that the major recruitment platforms will fully embrace AI, big data Blockchain and other technologies will create a benchmark platform for the recruitment industry in a new era, form a new competitive pattern, and jointly lead the development of the industry. Solving the problem of matching efficiency in the recruitment industry will become the common goal of all platforms.
