by | Jul 15, 2020 | For Candidates, Job Hunting

Visit our website and you will see we too are fond of all that AI can offer and how it enhances the recruitment strategies we have in place that help make our business run.  

We often say… “Your job search starts here. With our AI technology and team of strong recruiters, finding a job with Engage is faster and more efficient. Whatever your career goals are? We know how to help make them happen.”…

Our team of recruiters, their experience and skills are proven, but with the boost of AI in our recruitment, things are taken to the next level. 

From time to time over the last decade, everyone from politicians to actors to teachers have joked that at some point our jobs will all be done by robots. Today, Oxford University researchers estimate that 47% of all current US employment is at high risk to become automated over the next decade or so. Nervous yet? 

Of the 1.8 million jobs AI will get rid of, the emerging field will create 2.3 million jobs by 2020, according to a report from Gartner. So here we are… 2.3 million jobs that need qualified AI engineers, technicians, and scientists. 

While we’ve seen the benefits AI provides within the recruitment industry, our own team, and day to day work, we know it’s important to place candidates in roles that will continue to engineer these types of technologies. 

(Cue in three cheers for AI… hip, hip. hooray!)
