Leverage Automated Resume Harvesting To Build A Robust Talent Pipeline

Resume harvesting is a double-edged sword. It is one of the most time-consuming parts of a recruiter’s job, but also one of the most necessary to build a strong talent pipeline and reach the right candidates. 

Recruiters spend most of their time searching job boards hunting for top talent. It’s not enough to rely only on passive recruitment, hoping that the perfect candidate will see your job posting and apply. 

Recruiters need to automate as many tasks as possible to help them keep up with the market. AI in recruiting helps save time by using recruitment automation to take over this otherwise labor-intensive task, to optimize and streamline the resume harvesting process.

What Is Resume Harvesting?

Resume harvesting is part of the active recruitment process. Recruiters search through candidate profiles, on job boards or within their network, to find potential fits for open roles. This has historically been a manual process. 

Recruiters can use keywords to help narrow their search and drill down based on desired skills or experiences, but this still leaves them with many resumes to review for candidates who still may not be a good fit. 

AI works to make resume harvesting a much quicker and more thorough process, guided by large sets of data insights. 

5 Benefits Of Automated Resume Harvesting

Automated resume harvesting is the process of leveraging AI to search for qualified applicants (based on preset criteria) and downloading their profiles into your recruitment database, in order and ready for candidate screening.  Here are 5 benefits of implementing this process.

1. Save Time and Resources 

AI-powered resume harvesting solutions easily scan candidates from various job sites in one click, based on your criteria for an open role. 

By eliminating the tedious and time-consuming aspects of manual resume harvesting, recruiters can focus their time and energy on their most important responsibility, building relationships and engaging with qualified candidates. 

2. Build an Intelligent Resume Database

AI in recruiting helps reduce your long-term dependency on job boards to source talent for open roles. AI-powered solutions harvest resumes for you and can sort them based on the criteria you choose. 

Resume harvesting automates building a comprehensive intelligent pipeline of qualified, categorized candidates. You can rate profiles and store them in the system for future use as more roles open up. This ensures your pipeline is robust, relevant and readily available

3. Reduce Costs 

AI-powered resume harvesting  ensures you’re using your daily credits for job boards most effectively instead of wasting them on unqualified candidates.

This automated process also provides comprehensive reporting, giving you access to data   that shows which job boards are producing the best results. This information enables you to make data-driven decisions about  which boards are most worth investing in. 

4. Make Targeted Sourcing More Efficient

AI acts as your personal sourcing assistant. You tell it what to look for and it finds a list of qualified candidates based on your job criteria. 

Automated resume harvesting will source candidates without being influenced by human bias, with a strict focus on the requirements for the role in question. This provides more accurate, quick, and efficient targeting to search multiple sources quickly and find the best candidates. 

5. Improve the Quality of Candidate Sourcing

With the ability to quickly search specific candidates on a very large scale, AI-powered resume harvesting opens up your qualified talent pool on a level manual recruitment never could. 

When combined with AI-enabled candidate sourcing, this process ensures you’re finding the most qualified candidates. This is done without wasting time on manual triage for sourcing and harvesting. 

Utilize Technology for Resume Harvesting

Leaning on AI-enabled recruitment to automate your resume harvesting process plays a major part in fostering successful recruitment and hiring.

Reduce Time To Hire With AI-Enabled Recruitment

In today’s candidate-driven market, where job seekers have the upper hand and retention rates are lower than ever, reducing your time to hire without sacrificing the quality of hire is one of the biggest challenges facing recruiters.

Manual processes like screening and sourcing are the leading cause of lengthy recruitment processes and make it difficult to reduce the time to hire. A lengthy hiring process is enough to convince candidates to look for other opportunities. 

Leverage AI-Enabled Recruitment to Reduce Time To Hire

AI-enabled recruitment solutions automate repetitive tasks to speed up the sourcing and screening of qualified candidates. These solutions can even improve the resulting candidate pool. This allows you to reduce time to hire without compromising quality of hire or risking the loss of top talent. 

What Is Time To Hire?

Time to hire typically refers to the number of days between a candidate applying for a position and accepting the job offer. If you want to use another metric, you can use the total number of days between the job posting and the candidate’s start date. This metric allows for additional considerations such as the time from job posting to application submission or from offer acceptance to start date.

However you measure it, focusing on reducing your time to hire is critical to ensure you don’t lose desirable candidates because of unnecessary delays in your recruitment process

6 Benefits Of Reducing Time To Hire

1. Saves Money and Resources 

By hiring faster, you reduce the amount of time your hiring managers spend recruiting and the costs resulting from a vacant role. This includes factors like paying remaining employees overtime, hiring freelancers to fill a gap, or pushing back goals that impact business results and revenue. 

2. Avoids Fatigue and Burnout 

If your current employees are required to fill a workforce gap for too long due to a lengthy time to hire, you risk those employees experiencing burnout. This impacts the quality of their work and their levels of engagement, and could negatively impact retention. 

3. Raises Your Acceptance Rate

A faster, more efficient recruitment process means you’ll have fewer offers to compete with to land a star candidate. Candidates will have less time to explore elsewhere, giving you more negotiating power. 

A faster time to hire will also keep you from losing candidates through loss of interest or a competing offer. 

4. Accesses Higher-Quality Candidates 

High-quality candidates don’t stay available for long, especially in today’s hypercompetitive market. Potential employers race to secure top talent for themselves; ensuring your own recruitment process isn’t a delaying factor is critical. 

5. Improves Recruiter Productivity 

With manual tasks eliminated, your recruiters have more time to focus on valuable tasks like engaging candidates, passive recruitment, and optimizing your recruitment strategy. 

6. Elevates Candidate Experience 

When your hiring process is efficient and your recruiters’ productivity is improved, they have more time to engage candidates and support a better overall candidate experience. 


Ways To Reduce Time To Hire With AI-Enabled Recruitment 

Given the high volume of resumes received for each role, recruiters need faster ways to analyze candidate data. AI-enabled recruitment provides options like:

Improve Your Recruiting Process with AI-Enabled Candidate Sourcing

The goal for recruiters is to fill open roles with the most qualified talent. However, this involves many time-consuming tasks, with candidate sourcing at the top of the list. AI-enabled candidate sourcing is designed to take those tasks off their hands and elevate them. 

Manual candidate sourcing makes it impossible to check every potential source for top talent. This creates an unfortunate possibility that recruiters will miss out on high-quality candidates. Ultimately, this can impact the quality of hire. 

How AI-Enabled Candidate Sourcing Benefits Your Recruitment Process 

AI aids in creating a more efficient and insightful sourcing process, ensuring that the most qualified candidate is found for each role. It also frees up recruiters to use their time in more strategic, valuable ways. 

What Is AI-enabled Candidate Sourcing? 

AI-enabled sourcing is a technology that streamlines and automates the candidate sourcing process. This technology expands sourcing in ways that a single recruiter would not be able to. This is one of the key benefits of AI in recruitment.

AI technology quickly scans hundreds of databases and profiles  to find the best candidate matches for your open roles. It gathers large sets of valuable data insights along the way,  becoming increasingly intelligent and customized with each search. 

5 Benefits of Leveraging AI-Enabled Candidate Sourcing  

1. Expand Your Internal and External Talent Pool

AI-enabled sourcing contextually evaluates your candidate pool in a more holistic way by looking at factors like previous experiences and skills. These factors are directly and indirectly related to the role. 

The technology will automatically pull candidates from popular job boards and relevant niche websites you may not have even been aware of. The technology will quickly scan the open web to pull a large number of relevant candidates for each role.  

In addition to external sourcing, AI allows you to gain insights about your internal talent pool by quickly reviewing your existing employees using AI-powered matching to:

  • Determine if an existing employee would be a good fit for an open role 
  • Uncover candidates already available in your internal database
  • Uncover candidates with similar skills/experience within your workforce

2. Enable Better Hiring Decisions

Through the use of timely analytics and data-driven insights, your recruiters will make more informed and strategic decisions about sourcing and hiring for specific roles. 

They’ll be able to derive meaning from unstructured data to help guide them. When you couple candidate sourcing and talent analytics, recruiters can quickly looks at massive sets of data to provide contextual insights on things like:

  • Quality of hire 
  • Likelihood of a candidate accepting an offer
  • Related job titles and skills (similar roles may have different titles or use different terms to convey experiences)  
  • Where you are sourcing your best candidates from

3. Reduce Human Bias

Leveraging AI to find and vet candidates will reduce human bias, as it is programmed to ignore things like age, gender, and race. Its sole purpose is to match the best candidate to the role based on the skills and experience required. 

4. Create a More Efficient Recruitment Workflow  

Implementing AI-enabled sourcing helps to create a more efficient workflow across the entire recruitment process. This is the start of  automating and streamlining time-consuming tasks from the day of requisition until the date of hire. 

A more efficient workflow creates a smoother, faster and more effective candidate sourcing process, allowing recruiters to focus on more strategic tasks like engaging and onboarding top talent

As a result, recruiter productivity and effectiveness will improve. This enabled you to fill roles faster with high-quality candidates that will be easier for you to retain.  

5. Reduces Costs 

AI-enabled candidate sourcing alone has the potential to significantly reduce your cost-to-hire by enabling recruiters to make the best use of their time and resources. 

A shorter time-to-fill, time-to-hire, and requiring less staff to complete manual tasks will all reduce your hiring costs and improve employee retention. 

 

AI-enabled candidate sourcing is just ONE of the many powerful underutilized features of AI in recruitment. Although artificial intelligence is currently a trending topic, there is still some uncertainty due to a lack of knowledge about how it works.

Support Diversity & Inclusion in Your Recruitment Process With AI 

Diversity and inclusion are key to creating an engaging work environment that promotes innovation and growth. It’s also been proven that companies that promote inclusive hiring are more profitable. Diversity recruiting isn’t just the right thing, it’s the smart thing. 

Creating a truly inclusive recruitment process is important, but it isn’t easy. Recruiters face many challenges, including natural human bias, when implementing a diversity recruitment strategy. This bias is especially present in the screening and sourcing phases. 

As a result, recruiters are turning to solutions, like AI-powered talent  acquisition to reduce bias throughout their process, leveraging AI-enabled candidate sourcing and screening to support diversity and inclusion right from the start. 

Diversity vs Inclusion 

While diversity and inclusion are similar concepts, they aren’t the same. A company can be diverse but not be inclusive, and vice versa. 

Diversity refers to hiring individuals with different visible traits including gender, race, or age, and with invisible traits including unique skills, backgrounds, and experiences. 

Inclusivity is treating people equally despite those differences, including making sure they all have the same level of access to opportunities and tools, and all of their voices are heard.

The Importance of Building and Maintaining a Diverse Workforce

Inclusive hiring has a variety of benefits that have a big impact on your bottom line. 

  1. Attract More Applicants. If candidates researching your company see a variety of people represented, they may feel more comfortable applying. Women, for example, might be uncomfortable applying to a company that appears to be male-dominated. 
  2. Reduce Turnover. A diverse and inclusive workplace is one where employees feel heard, seen, valued, and accepted. This creates a happier, more engaged workforce who are more likely to stay with you long term, which reduces your recruitment and hiring costs.
  3. Boost Productivity. A happy employee is a productive employee. The morale boost brought on by a more diverse workplace motivates employees to be more solutions-oriented, to work together, and ultimately be more productive.
  4. Boost Innovation and Creativity. Similar people tend to share similar thought patterns and ideas; however, a diverse workforce is more likely to have varying thought patterns and ideas. This results in more innovative and creative brainstorming sessions, solutions, and strategies.
    Employees feel more comfortable sharing their ideas in an inclusive environment.
  5. Increase Revenue. Various studies show that companies with higher diversity scores see a positive impact on their bottom line. 

The benefits of diversity and inclusion listed above directly translate to better employee output and reduced costs related to hiring and recruitment, all of which directly impact revenue. 

How AI Enhances Diversity Recruiting and Supports Inclusive Hiring

AI enhances diversity recruiting and inclusive hiring in many ways. The biggest impact being the ability to reduce the elements of conscious and unconscious bias in the recruitment process. Traditional candidate sourcing and screening are often sources of implicit bias. 

AI enhances screening and sourcing, ensuring all candidates are being considered fairly and equally, based solely on what’s required for the role. 

AI-Enabled Candidate Sourcing 

AI enabled you to source a more diverse talent and build a more inclusive pipeline. With AI-enabled candidate sourcing, you can ensure all qualified candidates have equal access to open roles by ignoring demographic information. 

Conversely, AI solutions can zero in on key demographics like race, age, or gender to help you source candidates from specific groups in order to fulfill your specific diversity goals. 

AI also helps you create more inclusive job descriptions by identifying wording or terms that may be seen as biased or discriminatory, to help attract a more diverse talent pool. 

AI-Enabled Candidate Screening 

AI helps ensure that unconscious bias is not present in the screening process. Certain information on a candidate resume may trigger bias in a human recruiter, causing them to make assumptions and overlook a candidate based on a name, school, dates, or locations.

With AI-enabled candidate screening, you can ensure that this type of data is not considered. This allows for a more objective screening process. 

AI-enabled candidate screening also allows you to avoid positive bias. This ensures that a recruiter does not favor a candidate who they feel is similar to themselves or who they better connect with socially. This type of bias leads recruiters to falsely assume a candidate is a good fit for the role.

AI will also enable you to track your progress in relation to diversity goals. By gaining access to large-scale data sets and reporting, you can determine whether your hiring process is diversity-friendly and expose any barriers to employment.

Leverage AI-Powered Talent Intelligence for Diversity and Inclusion

AI-powered talent intelligence has multiple solutions you can leverage to promote diversity and inclusion. With AI-Enabled Talent Acquisition and AI-Enabled Recruitment, your recruiters will have access to tools that allow them to achieve D&I through:: 

  • Offering bias-free screening, ignoring things like race, gender, age, etc., and only focusing on the requirements for the role 
  • Building a diverse talent pool 
  • Increasing diversity by considering additional factors like business or life experience
  • Flagging discrepancies in the hiring process and providing information on who enters the pool vs. who is hired
  • Providing access to analytics to flag any signs of potential bias across all processes and exposing areas that need improvement

Investing in AI to support D&I in recruitment ensures you won’t miss out on top candidates due to bias. It will also free up your recruiters, HR, and leadership team to focus on inclusion so you can start reaping the benefits of a diverse workforce.

Accelerate Candidate Screening with AI-Enabled Recruitment

AI-enabled candidate screening is designed to address the single most time consuming and inefficient aspect of the recruitment process. Despite technological advancements, effective candidate screening remains one of the biggest challenges for recruiters today. 

Manually sorting through high volumes of applications for each open role is extremely labor intensive. Recruiters are focusing over half their time on triage. This leaves a lot of room to unintentionally overlook top applicants or miss out on strong passive candidates. 

AI-enabled screening increases the likelihood that the most qualified candidates will not be overlooked, by pinpointing which applicants are most compatible with the job description. With recruiters no longer having to manually scan through resumes one by one, they can spend more time focusing on recruiting and engaging qualified candidates.

What Is Candidate Screening?

Candidate screening is the process of reviewing job applications, resumes, and applicant profiles. Through this process, recruiters can identify which candidates have the right qualifications, experience, and skillset to be compatible with the job requirements and organization. 

The goal of candidate screening is to shortlist candidates to ensure only the best are moved on to the next stages of the hiring process. 

What Challenges Do Recruiters Face During the Candidate Screening Process?

  1. Reducing Time To Hire 

The ever-growing demand for recruiters to do more with fewer resources, paired with the extensive amount of time needed for candidate screening, is detrimental to productivity. and inevitably slows down the time to hire. 

Having a longer screening process and time to hire creates a greater risk of losing high-quality candidates to competitors. This is especially true when those competitors are able to provide a quicker recruitment and hiring experience. 

  1. Sourcing the Right Candidates 

Hiring the wrong people is expensive. Traditional ATS systems alone are not able to measure the success or quality of hires. This leaves recruiters to manually collect and analyze data to observe recruiting and hiring patterns. 

This results in more frequent bad hires being discovered later down the line, creating wasted time and resources for your business.

  1. Shortage of Qualified Talent 

Many applications that submit for open roles are considered unqualified or irrelevant. The countless hours spent while recruiters weed these out is  better used to tend to qualified candidates, active recruitment, and strategic work. 

With such high levels of applicant volume to work through, it is almost inevitable that some of the good ones will slip through the cracks while recruiters are using their time speaking with less desirable candidates. 

How To Improve Your Candidate Screening Process With AI-Enabled Recruitment

AI-enabled screening reduces the time to hire and improves recruitment effectiveness by streamlining and automating the candidate screening process. It enables recruiters to set priorities in their applicant list without having to rely on manual screening.

But AI-enabled screening isn’t the only artificial intelligence that can improve your candidate screening process. Here are 3 additional ways that AI can improve candidate screening:

  • AI-enabled recruitment helps remove human bias and promote diversity, equality, and inclusion when it comes to candidate selection. It also helps ensure each applicant has similar experiences to promote fairness.
  • AI-powered talent intelligence platforms provide vast amounts of valuable data insights to recruiters. Features like predictive talent analytics provide data showing which steps in the recruiting and hiring process need to be more efficient and highlight where recruiting funds should be allocated or reduced based on which sources are bringing in the most top candidates. 
  • AI-enabled talent acquisition solutions can quickly provide customized recommendations based on enormous data sets that your recruiters would not be able to analyze manually. 

When Leveraging AI-Enabled Recruitment, Recruiters Can:

  • Rank candidates based on skills, experience, and location and assess them using AI-enabled pre-screening chatbots to accurately match relevant profiles based on the job criteria through context-driven talent selection.
  • Automate the evaluation and selection of qualified candidates suitable to interview.
  • Create a solid pipeline, ensuring your organization always has access to the best talent. 
  • Source strong passive candidates from multiple channels and make recommendations from profiles closely matching the job description.
  • Improve the quality of hires by tracking applicants and activities with advanced analytics.  

Today’s job marketing is more competitive than ever. And recruiters must dedicate more time and effort to actively sourcing and engaging the most qualified candidates. 

AI-enabled screening removes the manual, repetitive tasks that eat up most recruiters’ valuable time, creating a more scalable recruitment process
