Watch Brightwing VP of Sales & Delivery Jonathan Gourwitz discuss how technology will change recruiting.
The more certain parts of our jobs are automated, meaning the resume screening, the sourcing – the high-touch transactional parts of our role are going to go away. It’s going to be done by software and technology.
“As transactional tasks are automated away, the most successful recruiters will be focused on building connection.”
The individuals that are going to be successful in recruiting moving forward are going to be the ones that are very good at building connection with their clients and their candidates. Building that relationship to understand everything that can’t be found in a resume, everything that can’t be found in an employment history.
“You are not just an accumulation of the jobs you’ve done in the past. You’re also your potential ability moving forward.”
You are not just an accumulation of jobs you’ve done in the past. You’re also your potential ability moving forward, and that’s where we want to be spending our time. The recruiters that have a high interest in building relationships and understanding what somebody is looking for, and really making it their passion to go out and deliver that, that’s the future of our industry. Much less a matter of calling 50 resumes and doing a quick, you know, do you have the skill set screen.
“The future of our business is going to be even more relationship-driven than it has been in the past.”
It’s really more a matter of we know you have the skill set now, what more are you looking for aside from the duties you’ll be performing and the pay you’ll be making. Because when somebody accepts a job, it’s always more than that. It’s company culture, it’s how they interact with their manager, it’s: do their ethics align with the organization’s ethics? And while there are going to be ways technology can help us with that, it will never do as well as a human-to-human interaction will. So, the future of our business is even more so relationship-driven than it has been in the past. I think that’s a great thing.
Brightwing has always known that having a cutting-edge tech stack is good, but it’s not enough to make a recruiting firm GREAT. Our recruiters are ready for the future of hiring. Are you? Let’s talk.
