Several businesses use artificial intelligence in the HR, some way or another. AI is expected to be used in the recruiting process by businesses. AI for hiring refers to the use of artificial intelligence to solve problems in the same way that a machine does. The use of technology is assisting in the streamlining of high-volume activities in the recruitment process. Online application management is one of the ways AI is assisting businesses with the recruiting process.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Online Recruitment Market

Various challenges are faced by industries in the US due to the outbreak of COVID-19. Thus, any impact on industries will directly affect the economic development of North America. The US is the world's worst-affected country by the COVID-19 outbreak. The consequent economic downturn has led to the rise in number of jobless candidates by more than 14 million in the country, which reached 20.5 million in May 2020 from 6.2 million in February 2020. As a result, in 2020, the rate of unemployment increased from 3.8% in February to 13.0% in May in the US; the rise in unemployment rate continued in April as well with 14.4%. This also led to a standstill in recruitment process across the region thereby impacting the online recruitment market. However, post Q3 2020, the number of COVID-19 cases in the US started declining, thus triggering gradual normalization of economic activities in the country. This resulted in rise in demand of products and services across the region. Moreover, with the improved vaccine distribution and administration drives, the US witnessed a more than expected increase in job openings in February 2021. According to data released by the Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS), in 2021, the number of job openings rose to 7.4 million in March 2021 from 7.1 million in February 2021. Nonetheless, the labor market has a long way to go before resuming its late-2019 status. The US hiring rate increased to 4% in February 2021 from 3.8% in February 2020. To hire people easily and rapidly while maintaining social distancing, the demand for online recruitment rapidly increased across the region.
