The future of recruitment
Can you imagine the world full of machines without a man in the industry? No, right.
Because that is not possible, even if the man has created the machines to work instead of him,
he will be present in the industry, because someone needs to lead all those processes and the
robot will not be capable for that. But why almost everyone is asking what will happen with
Recruiting companies, recruiters and “Hunting good candidates.” We need to be aware of
constant technology changes, that is our present, and it will be our future. Yes, the world is
changing, the industry of 4.0 is tending to that robots replace the human in this field, to
reduce the costs and provide more productivity, but no one is expecting that this all can be
possible without the man involved in it.
Let’s focus now on the recruiting process, so we can discuss later on what will happen with that.
Recruiting process is starting at the moment when your client tells you that he needs someone
new for some position in his company. After that recruiter preparing everything for the deep
search and the process of sourcing will take some time, depending on the position. The recruiter
is someone with many years of experience in the recruiting candidates, and he knows exactly
which candidate profile is ideal for the position. He reads the profile, but in that way he is not
reading the simple sentences he is reading the history of that person, he knows, and he feels all of
those profiles. Yes, he is spending 2 minutes on every profile, but in those 2 minutes he is
scanning that profile, and look at the specific details.
There is one fact and everyone will agree. The crucial fact in the recruiting process is feeling.
The recruiter needs to feel the profile, he needs to think in the same way as candidate, simply
say, recruiter needs to recognize in those simple sentences on the profiles which candidate is
willing to move, what the candidate expects from his future and the most important thing, the
recruiter must understand the psychology of people.
Technology and automation might be leaking into the industry, but recruitment is fundamentally a
social negotiation that needs a human touch. The process might be streamlined, and the work
itself given a facelift but it will remain a social practice at its core.
You can say right now, why I should hire a recruiting agency to find me the right candidate, when
I can do that by myself, or people from company HR sector can do that? The reason is really
simple. Even if there is a lot of platforms like LinkedIn, Job boards, etc. finding a good and
qualified candidate is the process, really hard process, because people are changing jobs quickly,
they are looking for something exciting, new, they are changing jobs more rapidly than ever
before. In the IT sector, you can see that developers are changing jobs on 3, 4 months. Why is
that happening? Because there is a bunch of free online courses, these days you can learn
everything, you can graduate in medicine but you can be a developer. How is that possible?
Simple, you can learn codes, and languages in 1 or 2 months online, after that you just need a
practice and voila you can work as a developer, even if you are a Doctor. Almost the same
situation is in many industries. So, yes you can find the candidate by yourself, but nobody can
guarantee to you that that candidate will stay at your company for a long time and that he/she is
the real expert in his field. Recruiters are doing researches always, they are having a huge base
with right candidates for positions where they are expert, they are in constant communication
with right candidates, and they know which candidate is right for every position, they just feel
that. That comes with years and years of experience. Many corporations believe in the choice of
and when recruiter say this guy is one for this position that is of, he gets the job.
Organisations will seek Recruitment agencies till the time there are people coming in and.
Business will be their CORE and till the time you have been handling a support function why not
continue using them. With a tightening candidate pool and all the uncertainty around European
limitations, agencies will be a lifeline to accessing talent.
So, yes we think that recruitment processes will always stay in the domain of because we are all
humans, and even if the machines will replace in some industrial processes, there will always be
human to develop and manage those processes.
