Recruiters: How digital assistants can speed up your searches

Published on: Apr 9, 2018


Artificial intelligence is everywhere, even if you don't always notice it. Every time you enter a search term into your web browser, you're benefiting from AI advancements. If these solutions can augment searches for information, why can't they improve candidate searches as well?

Here's how AI assistants can improve productivity levels for medical recruiters.

More than a search engine

In a consumer context, digital assistants are often thought of as simply another way to search the internet. You'll see individuals asking Siri, Alexa, OK Google, or Cortana questions, which the AI answers by returning search results. This is certainly an important function of the technology, but it's far from the only productivity benefit these solutions can offer.

Loren Baker, a VP at Foundation Digital, explained in an article at that AI assistants have the ability to automate many tasks in a professional's life. For example, a digital assistant can remember your appointments for you, send alerts to your smartphone when it's time to make a call or head to the conference room. Some assistants will even pull appointment reminder emails from your inbox and create calendar notes automatically.

A boost to administrative productivity

For medical recruiters, many of the benefits of digital assistants come in the form of time-saving features. In the world of recruiting, there are always more tasks to complete than there are hours in the day. A personal, digital assistant can reduce your administrative burden by updating your schedule, sending out reminders and alerts, and much more. A digital assistant can even connect to your office's smart thermostat to control the temperature as you come and go.

Digital assistants can also improve engagement between your office and medical candidates. According to, an IBM property, roughly a quarter of millennials expect a response within 10 minutes of reaching out to a brand. In the recruiting world, response time is important. An AI can track your average response times and give you insights into how to improve processes around the office.

Another way to increase your productivity as you search for qualified candidates is to leverage medical-specific job boards. Unlike generic career websites, a targeted board cuts through the noise of other industries and puts your listings in front of qualified applicants.
