Navigating the AI-Driven Job Market in 2024

The job market evolves quickly, and AI is playing a bigger role in hiring processes. Our research shows that over a quarter of job candidates already use AI when applying for jobs, while more than half of recruiting teams leverage AI for work-related tasks.

Veris Insights has been at the forefront of researching AI’s impact on recruitment since its rise in early 2023. Last week, our CEO, Carter Bradley, led a webinar on “Recruiting in the Era of Generative AI: Strategies for Success in 2024.” During this session, Carter discussed strategies to address potential biases in AI tools and advocated for responsible AI usage in hiring.

Our goal is to equip you with the tools to stay ahead in your job search. This sneak peek provides insights into upcoming trends in AI-driven recruiting, empowering you to navigate them with confidence! In a previous blog, we introduced ChatGPT and AI, demonstrating how they can enhance your job search. If you’re new to ChatGPT and AI, we recommend starting there to learn more about leveraging them effectively.

 

Responsibly Adapting Your Job Search Strategy Based on AI Trends

 

(1) Rethinking Cover Letters

TA leaders are beginning to put less weight on cover letters as measures of genuine skills and interest. Instead, focus on showcasing your skills and experiences through other means, such as your resume, your LinkedIn profile, interviews and assessments. While Generative AI can help refine your cover letters, remember not to rely solely on AI-generated content.

 

(2) Mastering Behavioral Interviews

As employers increasingly embrace skills-based hiring, they’re also valuing behavioral questions for their ability to elicit responses less prone to quick artificial generation. Check out our recent blog on how to ace behavioral interviews.

 

(3) Leveraging Generative AI in Your Job Search

For relevant roles, like technical roles, employers may incorporate AI into assessments and ask candidates to improve AI-generated output. Familiarize yourself with AI tools and be prepared to demonstrate your abilities in AI-assisted assessments.

 

(4) Understanding Future AI Guidelines

Over 48% of candidates prefer employers to permit the use of Generative AI but provide guidelines around it. Be aware of these guidelines and use AI tools responsibly in your job search. Understand the limitations of AI and be prepared to supplement AI-generated content with your own insights and experiences.

 

 

Our research reveals that 41% of candidates value companies providing workshops or resources on utilizing generative AI in job applications.
