Artificial intelligence is ubiquitous in corporate recruiting, including Applicant Tracking System (ATS) software that scans resumes for relevant keywords, algorithms that identify and connect with passive candidates on social media via bots, and virtual reality interviewing.
Now, you can add real-time personality screening to that list.
An increasing number of companies conduct these screenings during interviews—often without candidates’ knowledge. The software supposedly measures personality traits, such as enthusiasm, calmness, anxiety and irritability by mapping a candidate’s facial expression and matching it with a database of personality types.
