I Tried Recruiting With AI and Here’s What Happened

Want help with your hiring? It's easy. Enter your information below, and we'll quickly reach out to discuss your hiring needs.

A few years ago, we interviewed Saunghee Ko about using our AI software. She graduated from Princeton University and entered the business world. Before that, she interned in HR and recruiting departments in past summers, and while she liked it, she learned pretty quickly that the space had a lot of room for innovation. So, she went into the job search to find an innovative role in top talent management or HR professional positions.

This is where Recruiter.com comes in. We have Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools to automate the most time-consuming parts of the recruitment process. It clicked. This was the innovation that the recruiting space needed and what she wanted to be a part of.

Keep reading to see what Ko had to say about recruiting with Recruiter.com’s AI software.

Old School

“When I first joined the company, my time was spent as a recruiter, executing traditional recruiting process tactics – browsing resume databases, sourcing on social networks, etc. – for a group of full-service clients. The job requirements and hiring timelines were not based on jobs data but on an internal, client-imposed, set of milestones, i.e., ‘Need a new salesperson to start next month in Phoenix!’

“Forecasting candidate pools, conversion rates, and hiring timelines was complete guesswork. I spent most of my time just trying to find the right people to message, and it left little time for the strategic work of personalization and nurturing. It made the whole hiring process pretty inefficient.”

New School

“My timing to join the company aligned well with their timeline to start internally testing their new AI recruiting tools. Before long, I transitioned to using the Recruiter.com Intelligent Sourcing System (ISS), which was a huge game-changer.

“Suddenly, my time was super optimized; when we took on a new role, instead of spending weeks trying to identify a target group of job candidates, I was immediately presented with a list of potential job seekers that aligned with the business and the specifics the role.

“Additionally, there were data-driven insights that I could use in my outreach to the qualified candidates. I was told by candidates I worked with that the data insights were also helpful to them in evaluating whether or not they wanted to learn more about the role and the employer.

Recruiter.com’s AI recruitment software allowed me to focus on high-value activities, like more personalized messages and establishing relationships with the candidates. I spent more time on the things that mattered instead of using it all up, researching and looking through the haystack of profiles.

“Using our product, I saw my productivity metrics increase by 5x in the number of candidate calls I was having per week. That continued through the rest of my recruiting funnel (candidate submittals, interviews, etc.).”

Example of Recruiter.com’s AI in Action

“We received a call from a client with an urgent need to backfill for someone who unexpectedly resigned. During this call, they let us know that they’d reached out to four recruiting agencies to work on the role.

“Using our ISS, we were able to submit eight well-matched candidates by the end of that week, while the four agencies submitted just one person. And that’s not one each, but one total!”

AI Is the Future, and The Future Is Now

“In 2017, AI and machine learning were (and probably will continue to be) ubiquitous– it’s the subject of countless articles and the foundation of numerous startups. While I’d heard and read a lot about how AI would impact industries and jobs, I never directly experienced AI in a specific application that impacted my workflow until I started working here.

“While everyone talks about AI for recruiting and taking jobs, this is an application that makes me more valuable. My productivity measurably increased, and I was able to eliminate the monotonous aspects of recruiting – if this is the future, I am so in!”
