There’s a lot of talk lately about robots taking our jobs.
Estimates predict that the number of jobs lost to automation within the next decade could be a million in the U.S. alone.
But what about the new job opportunities they could create? Advocates say that the number of positions created by technological developments will far outweigh those taken away.
The recruitment industry is front and center to that disruption from automation.
Increasingly, employers are using robotics to speed up the recruitment process and free up hiring managers’ time for more complex tasks, while removing human biases that can hold back some applicants. In fact, today, nearly all Fortune 500 companies are using some kind of automation to enhance their hiring processes.
