Innovating with Generative AI: How a Recruiting Firm Can Help You Stay Ahead

A recent project by NYU Tandon found that “Many Fortune 500 companies employ AI-based solutions to weed through the millions of job applications the companies receive every year.” These companies utilize different types of AI, including generative AI, to greatly reduce one of their biggest hiring issues, an insane talent pool of unqualified candidates. This saves them valuable time by not having to weed through candidates on their own, but it’s not just Fortune 500 companies implementing AI.  Recent studies project “35% to 45% of companies are expected to use AI-based talent acquisition software and services to help select and interview job prospects this year,” which means you need to hop on the bandwagon and hire a recruiting firm who already utilizes AI daily to find the best candidates for your professional roles.

What is Generative AI?

Generative AI is an advanced technology that enables machines to generate new content, such as images, text, or even music, all on their own. Now that Generative AI is becoming a factor in our services, we are finding ways to greatly improve the effectiveness of our recruitment process, utilizing various systems for personalized communications and to determine whether a candidate is properly qualified for a role before submitting them, saving you time even after they are hired. The use of AI can help streamline the hiring process, reduce bias, and ultimately lead to better hiring decisions, putting you way ahead of the competition.

Types of Generative AI

Previously AI had been used in a simple manner and limited to predictive models.  To put it simply, think of when you solve a reCaptcha.  The website asks if you’re a bot and then tells you to pick  through nine picture squares to select which ones have a cat in them. Though these may seem like a simple way to keep bots out of a website, you are actually training AI to recognize patterns from images and scrutinize images to match patterns of the other images selected in junction, which is why it sometimes can’t recognize a chunk of a crosswalk and makes you redo. Generative AI takes this a step further. Not only does this type of AI know what a cat looks like, it can compile various images of cats found in its database and make a brand new image based on a given prompt.


This type of AI relies on a prompt in order to generate a text-based response. This enables tasks such as text classification, named entity recognition, and text summarization.

  • Amazon Alexa
  • Google Translate


AI for image creation is able to generate new images based on patterns and styles it has learned from existing data. This capability is often utilized in tasks such as image synthesis, style transfer, and artistic rendering. Just take a look at the image on the top of this white-paper to see AI’s capabilities in generating full images from scratch.

This AI might use text or read music to create high quality chord progressions and even it’s own instruments.  Artists can give the AI large amounts of musical compositions and the machine will take that information, learn unique information about the composition, and generate brand new sounds based on the data it was given.

Is AI New to Recruiting?

In short, no, AI is not new to recruiting.  Even pre-2015 recruiting firms were utilizing artificial intelligence just as you were in everyday life in the most basic sense, maybe even without realizing.

While the use of AI in recruiting may not have been nearly as advanced as it is today, basic applications like chatbots and algorithmic talent screening were already in place. Chatbots were used to assist with candidate engagement and initial information gathering, while algorithmic talent screening helped automate the process of resume parsing and candidate matching. These early implementations laid the groundwork for the further integration of AI into the recruiting industry.

Today, with the use of advanced AI technology, repetitive recruitment processes can be automated. This allows recruiting firms to have more time for important and personable tasks such as relationship building, strategic planning, and adaptability in dynamic situations.  Recruiters bring valuable qualities such as empathy, intuition, creativity, and strategic thinking to complement the capabilities of AI.

How does Generative AI Take Recruiting Further?

Generative AI has been changing the landscape in almost every industry and has proved to be an absolute game-changer in the field of recruiting.  AI offers a host of benefits that take our processes to new heights. Let’s explore how Generative AI is revolutionizing talent acquisition:

  • Resume Screening: By utilizing AI-powered tools like Ideal, HireVue, and Textio, a recruiting firm can quickly scan and identify relevant skills, experience, and qualifications by running resumes through the programs.
