AI Recruiter compiles the key criteria and skills that you've outlined in a job description to find candidates who could be a good fit for that job. Using data about the job, combined with People Search, AI Recruiter will automatically generate a list of up to 50 candidates.
Generating this list will use up to 50 of the available People Search profiles included in your subscription. One profile is consumed for each result. If only 42 candidates are generated then only 42 profiles are used.
Note: Trial accounts are able to test out AI Recruiter. During the trial period, get limited results from a single AI Recruiter search. Up to 25 candidates will be returned. The full AI Recruiter functionality will be available upon upgrading to a monthly or annual plan.
Using AI Recruiter
When you activate a Published, Internal or Confidential job, AI Recruiter goes to work. In about 2 minutes it will find up to 50 potential candidates who match your job.
To add them to your pipeline, access AI Recruiter from the Find Candidates tab in the job editor. Click the AI Recruiter box and the candidates will be automatically sent to the Sourced stage.
If you haven't sourced any candidates yet, you'll see the number of candidates that AI Recruiter found on the Jobs dashboard. In the Sourced stage for a job, the number of AI Recruiter candidates will appear grayed out. Click on that stage and then select Add suggested candidates if you want to include those people in your pipeline.
Candidates will be automatically tagged with "#suggested_by_workable" so you can easily differentiate those you've uploaded yourself from AI Recruiter results.
People enrolled in Workable Bridge may also appear in AI Recruiter results with the "#bridge_candidate" tag.
Note: If you have GDPR features enabled on your account, candidates that are sourced for jobs in the EU will be deleted after 30 days unless you contact them via email through Workable.
Should there be a major change in the role you're recruiting for you can re-run an AI Recruiter search after updating the job description. If the job requirements haven't changed, we recommend using People Search to look for candidates based on specific criteria and locations.
Once AI Recruiter has found candidates, reach out to them via email individually or bulk. These are "passive" candidates who have not directly applied for the job, so be sure to introduce yourself, the company and convey why you're reaching out. Continue with your recruiting process as normal and make your next hire!
