Singapore-based jobs portal GrabJobs recently launched Artificial Intelligence Recruitment Assistant (AIRA) on its mobile jobs platform.
AIRA is able to conduct pre-screening interviews with candidates through chat and is intended to ease the interview process for both the job seekers and the recruiters. Through the interview bot, job seekers are given the chance to get noticed by answering interview questions. Recruiters, on the other hand, are able to filter and shortlist candidates based on more than just their CV.
“Answering a question like ‘what do you like about our brand?’ will not only set apart candidates who do their research from those who don’t, but will moreover give immediate insight about the applicant to the employer,” explains GrabJobs co-founder Emmanuel Crouy.
Instead of conducting endless face-to-face interviews with all the candidates asking the same questions over and over, AIRA initiates a conversation as soon as applicants submit their CV for a job they are interested in, and where it asks screening interview questions that are predetermined by the recruiters. The A.I. bot then scores the interviews and ranks them based on the applicants’ responses. Since recruiters simply need to review the top rated answers, they would be able to respond quickly to the applicants and focus on doing in-person interviews with quality candidates.
GrabJobs and AIRA are currently being used in Singapore, Philippines, Thailand, and Myanmar.
