Human resources often find that screening applicants and completing background checks can take many hours and require extensive paperwork when undertaken in the conventional manner. Screening resumes to identify eligible candidates is a high-volume recruitment task, particularly because HR professionals receive many applications from candidates who are not fully qualified.

However, artificial intelligence (AI) continues to evolve and is becoming a driving force in the industry, with AI recruitment solutions available for everything from applicant sourcing to onboarding.

Applicant screening is a critical part of the recruitment process, so it’s beneficial to use the best AI technology to sift through resumes.
