AI is changing the way we live in ways both large and small. One area is hiring. With the advent of AI doing preliminary analysis of the CVs organisations receive, candidates must think hard about how this may effect the way they construct their CVs.

Recruiters generally spend only a few seconds with a CV and look for ways to reject it against the job they want to fill.
And the process can be even more brutal when machines are used to make the initial cut of candidates.
“Artificial intelligence (AI) and automated machine learning algorithms are being utilised in every industry, including recruitment,” says Nick Deligiannis, Managing Director of recruiters Hays in Australia.
“Typically, it is time consuming and repetitive tasks that are being automated.”
In the case of recruitment, one job ad can elicit hundreds, sometimes thousands, of responses. Many of these may be inappropriate but all must be screened in order to identify the suitable candidates.
“With the aid of AI and algorithms, such time consuming processes now take seconds, allowing recruiters and hiring managers to provide a more personal service and engage with skilled and experienced professionals,” Deligiannis says.
