AI is everywhere in recruitment, but how is it being used exactly? In a new podcast series ‘AI in Recruitment’, co-hosts Martijn Hemminga and Jasper Spanjaart explore the rapidly evolving world of artificial intelligence (AI) in recruitment.
As technology continues to advance, the use of AI in recruitment is becoming more prevalent, offering recruiters and HR professionals new opportunities to enhance their hiring processes and make more data-driven decisions. In a brand-new podcast series, co-hosts Martijn Hemminga and Jasper Spanjaart explore the benefits, challenges, and potential pitfalls of using AI to source, screen, and hire candidates.
Diving deep(er) into AI
Each episode will have its own ChatGPT segment — and a separate subject matter. The podcast’s very first episode revolved around a simple question: what is AI? “Artificial Intelligence is increasingly being used in our daily lives in a wide range of applications, from virtual assistants and chatbots to recommendation systems and personalised advertisements”, said Hemminga. “We’re not proclaiming to be experts on AI, rather, we’re looking to deep-dive into several subjects, to learn more ourselves. And get a deeper understanding.”

“Whether known to those making talent acquisition decisions or not, the usage of AI has skyrocketed in recruiting technology”, Spanjaart added. “I think for us it’s mainly about bringing together both users and suppliers of recruiting technology. I usually use the same analogy: there’s a new tool being born every couple of hours. So how to navigate in a market that screams we need change. And we will be the tool that saves your recruitment. AI is a big part of that. We want to get to the core of it — and find out everything about how it’s being used.”
News in ‘AI In Recruitment’
Every episode will have its own news segment. The first bit of news: to make sure AI becomes better and more reliable, a new branch of programming is now getting more attention, as per a report by the Washington Post. The so-called ‘prompt editor’ or ‘AI whisperer’ is someone who ‘consults’ with artificial intelligence in normal spoken or written language. These people are looking for AI’s shortcomings, the points where systems get confused. When they find those points, they talk to the AI, so to speak, to make sure it improves.
Meanwhile, Elon Musk is reportedly forming a new research lab to develop an alternative to ChatGPT, according to a new report from The Information. Though Musk was one of the original founders of OpenAI, he left in 2018. Largely due to disagreements with the direction of the company. Since then, he has been a vocal critic of the company and its products. Calling ChatGPT ‘too woke.’
