The evolution of AI in talent acquisition

Usin AI in recruitment. The evolution of AI in recruitment.

The recruitment landscape has undergone significant changes with the introduction of AI, revolutionising how companies source, attract and hire talent. Using AI in talent acquisition has become a crucial strategy for organisations aiming to stay competitive in today’s fast-paced market.

A brief history of AI usage in recruitment

Using AI in recruitment started with basic algorithms designed to match keywords from resumes to specific job descriptions and demands. As technology advanced, so did AI’s capabilities, evolving from simple keyword matching to sophisticated algorithms capable of assessing skills, predicting job performance, and even gauging cultural fit.

The speed of development of this technology has been incredible and has drastically accelerated in the last 10 years. Today the main struggle for most recruiters and talent acquisition managers seems to be how to utilise AI capabilities without losing the personal touch that most candidates still expect and value from a potential employer. Let’s review the benefits of AI and when to consider using it. 

Key benefits of using AI in talent acquisition

Efficiency and Speed:

  • AI can help streamline recruitment by automating repetitive tasks, such as resume screening and interview scheduling. This can reduce the time-to-hire significantly. AI can help quickly put together message templates that you can later customise to add your own tone of voice and make the messages feel more personal and on brand.

Bias Reduction:

  • AI algorithms can be designed to minimize human biases in the recruitment process, ensuring a fairer evaluation of candidates based on skills and qualifications rather than subjective opinions. Even though there are still some debates ongoing about whether AI functionality today makes this totally foolproof and can fully be trusted, it is likely that this use case for AI is here to stay.

How AI tools are transforming recruitment

Resume Screening:

  • AI tools can analyze large volumes of resumes quickly and accurately, identifying the best matches for job openings. This ensures that recruiters spend more time engaging with qualified candidates rather than sifting through applications.

Enhanced Sourcing:

  • AI-driven sourcing tools can scan online profiles, job boards, and social media platforms to identify passive candidates who may not have applied but are a good fit for the role.

AI writing assistant

  • Streamline your communication and use AI-created templates. Ever felt stuck after writing “Dear, [recipient_full_name]”? You can now use AI writing assistants in Teamdash applicant tracking system for long text fields and landing pages. The AI writing assistant knows the context of your text from available editor content, merge tags, your company information from the Brand settings, current project, and its description. If writing a comment or sending a message to a single candidate, the AI takes into account the candidate’s CV, too.

Interview transcribing and analysis:

  • AI tools can successfully be used to automatically transcribe interviews with candidates for talent acquisition managers to not have to only rely on the notes they manage to take during the interviews. This alone should help save countless hours of valuable time. There are tools on the market today that can be integrated with your existing ATS or applicant tracking systems that offer this functionality as part of their core product.

Data-Driven Decision Making:

  • AI aggregates data from various stages of the hiring process to provide insights and recommendations for improving recruitment strategies.

The future of AI in talent acquisition

As AI technology continues to evolve, its applications in recruitment will become even more sophisticated. Future advancements may include AI tools that can assess soft skills through video interviews, provide real-time feedback to candidates, and offer personalised career path recommendations.


Using AI in talent acquisition has transformed the recruitment landscape, offering unparalleled efficiency, enhancing the candidate experience, and promoting fairness in hiring. As organisations continue to adopt AI, they can expect to see even more innovative solutions that will further revolutionize how they attract and retain top talent. It is still more than unlikely that AI will ever be able to replace recruiters and talent acquisition teams completely. Rather it will be used as a tool to continue improving the speed and quality of the recruitment process for both talent teams, candidates and hiring managers.
