Breaking the Interview Scheduling Barrier with Conversational AI in 2023

Breaking the Interview Scheduling Barrier with Conversational AI
Although we’ve entered the year 2023, interview scheduling remains a significant challenge for hiring managers and recruiters worldwide. It’s time to take action and make a difference.

As technology evolves, conversational AI is transforming the hiring process.

It’s 2023, and somehow one of the most consistently nagging challenges with hiring remains the scheduling of interviews. 

Applicant tracking systems, which have been around for decades, have failed to solve for the complexity of interview scheduling, leaving it largely to be done manually, even after significant automation gains in other areas of the process. Sure, most (but not all!) have something to help with a simple 1:1 interview, but many still struggle with panels, room booking, round robin, code tests, and many other complexities.

Recent advances in technology, such as automated negotiation, have helped to address some of the long-standing challenges in the hiring process. Conversational AI that can negotiate in complex games can also negotiate calendar availability, which is a game-changer in overcoming the bad calendar hygiene of hiring managers and other interviewers. Messaging platforms, such as Teams, Slack, and SMS, have replaced email as the primary method of communication, enabling real-time communication to navigate time-sensitive reschedules.

Moreover, the pandemic and remote work movement have resulted in an increase in video conferencing for interviews. To avoid logistical challenges and frustrations, integrations with video providers like Zoom and Teams are essential. While this area holds promise, many companies are still struggling to conduct interviews effectively. Conversational software powered by AI assistants can play a significant role in organizing interview feedback and driving companies forward.

Conversational AI is transforming the hiring process, but it is crucial for companies to ensure that they are doing the basics of interviewing right in order to fully capitalize on its potential.
