When someone loses their job, they lose a part of their identity, and that can leave them lost and uncertain. And when it comes time to interview for another job, they may not be exhibiting their highest level of confidence.
Automating recruitment is inevitable. Cutting-edge technology can be a wondrous tool for improving efficiency, better identifying business needs, and even helping develop strategy through data analysis.
I cringe when I hear company recruiters talk about how “broken” their internal recruiting systems are. While I agree that internal recruiting processes can suffer from what are sometimes enormous challenges, I prefer to think of the process as bent, not broken.
