Computer says no!
14 July 2017
At Vodafone you need to pass a computer test before you can get an interview with a human – and the company is extending its AI recruitment system to include senior managers and executives.
Currently, only candidates for
call-centre and shop floor roles are being asked to submit to video interviews, answering a standard questionnaire. A computer then looks for suitability based on subtle facial cues and voice intonation.
Only those who pass the computer test will be put forward for an interview by a real human being!
About 50,000 applicants have already gone down this route, and Vodafone is so pleased with the results it wants to expand the system.
The worry is that a momentary stutter or a sideways glance could mean you lose out in future.
