Machine learning and artificial intelligence are two significant trends in the tech industry that transform corporate processes. Through AI, job seekers can find ideal jobs, and recruiters can find the perfect candidates by using algorithms that deeply analyze job descriptions and resumes based on hard skills, soft skills, education, experience, industry, and significant additional criteria.
So, how is AI helping here?
Instead of going through endless pages of prospective results, AI can help candidates find the most relevant jobs and recruiters find the best candidates for open positions resulting in a better fit for any position. With this search feature, job seekers can get optimized results of job descriptions that match their skills, location, or any specific need. Advanced machine learning and NLP-based models power the search features to assist job seekers in finding the most accurate information in their search.
Recommending the right job
An alternative to simply searching for jobs is to suggest or recommend jobs. Job hunting is a full-time job, especially when the job searches are not filtered for positions matching a candidate's skills. AI makes this process more efficient by recommending the best jobs that match the skills of a job hunter. With advanced machine learning algorithms, the rise of recommendation engines has shifted narrow searches to recommendations for jobs that are more likely to be of interest to job hunters. AI solutions can make these types of connections by learning from the profiles of millions of individuals and then calculating the conditional probability of related skills and titles.
Job descriptions can be long and confusing, and it is often hard to understand which positions are relevant and which candidates may have matching skillsets for the requirements listed. In such instances, job seekers may question if they are a good fit for the job and have all the skills necessary that match the job description. Here comes AI to the rescue as it provides the opportunity to understand better the alignment between the job hunter’s strengths that will improve the odds of the candidate being successful in the job.
Enhancing response time
Like providing transparency to the candidates, AI is becoming more prevalent in the recruitment process as companies look to improve recruiting efficiency and transparency. AI offers advanced analytics and valuable insight into a candidate's experience, whereby recruiters can quickly identify the most qualified candidates without sifting through an overwhelming amount of resumes. They can also anonymize the names of the candidates to minimize the potential for name-related bias.
Even with the best intentions, human bias may occur within the hiring decision-making process, creating obstacles for job seekers. Data scientists can help with prevention by developing AI programs that eliminate hiring bias. AI algorithms can improve the quality of job-search results by reducing the number of biased result listings helping job seekers get a fair representation, and ultimately resulting in employers selecting the best candidate for a role.
Applicant tracking systems
Organizing, filtering, and streamlining job applications is vital for an Applicant Tracking System (ATS). Advanced systems use AI to rank potential candidates according to their skills and experience, pushing highly ranked candidates to the top of the list. The advanced ATS analyzes keywords and checks for the presence of specific words or synonyms in the CVs to rank candidates.
The rise of AI has made job seekers' and recruiters’ lives simpler, and it’s only going to get better. Through the continuous learning of AI systems that facilitate better informed and streamlined decision-making, the recruiting and selection process is much more efficient and effective, offering great advantages to both job seekers and employers alike.

This looks like a one way road for decades, as a job seeker I still need to spend endless hours on a single job platform going theough the whole application process job offer by job offer when I see no reason this super tidious process couldn’t by auto-piloted via AI.
