Due to the rise of artificial intelligence (AI), the recruitment profession is currently experiencing a significant shift. While AI is predominantly being used to augment human capability rather than replace it, the technology is facilitating substantial changes in day-to-day practices, such as screening excessive numbers of resumes in a short amount of time and predicting future hiring trends. Despite this, recruitment professionals believe that 'people skills' like empathy, negotiation, and relationship-building will continue to be vital for a successful career in this field. Experts suggest that the best way to navigate this new landscape is to embrace technology and learn to blend the high-tech capabilities of AI with high-touch human skills.
