Artificial intelligence and algorithm-driven technologies are impacting every facet of our daily lives. From online advertising platforms that serve unique ads to us depending on our preferences and tendencies to self-parking or self-driving capabilities on our cars, AI is affecting us everywhere we look. That impact has now reached employment.
Many employers now use AI-infused systems to sort resumes and identify the ones that most clearly match what they are seeking in a candidate. Chatbots are a standard piece of the candidate experience, helping job applicants to get answers or information that human hiring managers don’t have time to provide. Employment-related technological changes abound, but the most significant change may still be coming: the use of AI to fully drive and automate the employee background check process.
