When it comes to the end-to-end recruiting process there’s one piece of the candidate puzzle that continues to complicate things--the so-called “soft skills.” This is the candidate’s personality, their level of empathy, how well they work in a team environment, and so on.

AI-powered software is already being used by a majority of major corporations for at least one step in their candidate journey.
