Release Date: 04/05/2019
Recruiting automation is often talked about conceptually, but when you dig into the details, there is a big question mark around what is actually possible and what employers are actually currently doing in this area. At the same time, there are questions around quality, cost and candidate experience which just aren't being adequately debated.
With this in mind, I decided it was time to investigate the issue in more detail, so I got together with experienced recruiting leader John Wallace to dig a bit deeper into the world recruiting automation.
In this episode you will find:
