In the early days, recruitment technology was all about finding ways to automate every possible step in the recruitment workflow - from sourcing to onboarding and everything in between.

But the most time-consuming stage of all - the interview process - was one that, until now, couldn’t really be automated. Or at least, the technology wasn’t advanced enough yet.

It’s been a journey getting to that technological sweet spot with interviews. Initially, we began using video to replace human interviews entirely with virtual ones, where candidates go through the whole hiring process without even speaking directly with a recruiter.

But using these types of interview tools created a new problem for recruiters: the candidate experience suffered, and applicants were left feeling undervalued and overlooked.

Thanks to major recent advancements in artificial intelligence technology, we’re now able to automate candidate interviews in way that makes them better and more enjoyable for everyone.

These AI interview tools work because they’re not designed to automate the interviews themselves, but all the admin that goes with it. That way, recruiters can benefit from the automation without sacrificing any of the human parts of interviews. They can provide better, more engaging interviews by offering candidates their undivided attention, and let AI technology handle the rest.

With these sorts of AI interview tools, it's no longer just about efficiency, but about having the space to establish more meaningful connections with candidates than ever before.

Let’s look at the different types of AI-based interviewing tools recruiters can use to support in the interview process, and some examples of the best tools available on the market right now.

How is AI software used for interviews?

AI interview tools come in various categories, each designed to address different aspects of the recruitment process.

Here are some common categories or types of AI interview tools:

  • Recruiter-AI collaboration platforms: These enable real-time collaboration between recruiters and AI. These tools are like recruitment workmates, working alongside recruiters to carry the burden of admin involved in interviews, like note-taking, summary writing and candidate profile creation.
  • Automated video interview platforms: Tools that use AI to automate and conduct video interviews. These tools can assess candidates through facial expressions, language analysis, and tone of voice. Some tools can provide one-way interview functionalities, enabling entirely asynchronistic interviewing, meaning a recruiter doesn’t even have to be present during the interview at all.
  • Chatbot interview assistants: AI-powered chatbots that engage with candidates in a conversational manner, asking predefined questions and gathering information to assess their suitability for the role. These tools are normally used for prescreening in volume hiring.
  • Language processing and analysis tools: Solutions that employ natural language processing (NLP) to analyze written or spoken responses, extracting meaningful insights and evaluating communication skills.
  • Gamified interview assessments: Platforms that use gamification principles and AI to assess a candidate’s cognitive abilities, problem-solving skills, and personality traits in an engaging manner.
  • Bias Detection and mitigation tools: Tools designed to identify and mitigate biases in the hiring process, ensuring fair and objective evaluations of candidates during interviews.

1. Carv

Best for: Increasing recruitment effectiveness

Stands out through: Recruiter-AI collaboration

Carv is an AI-powered recruitment platform designed to manage the administrative aspects of interviews and intake calls. The platform integrates into the ATS and works alongside human recruiters, like a true AI workmate.

What does Carv do?

In short, it joins meetings - be they intake calls with hiring managers or interviews with job seekers, and takes over all the admin work associated with these calls.

By minimizing administrative tasks, Carv gives recruiters the breathing space to concentrate on more candidate-focused activities — like fully engaging in conversation during interviews instead of worrying about note-taking and assessing the candidate against predefined interview criteria.

Carv’s features are all specifically designed with the recruitment process in mind, so it can  support recruiters when conducting all interview-related administrative work. Here's how it helps:

  • Pre-interview: Carv records all necessary details during intake calls with hiring managers so recruiters don’t need to take any manual notes during the discussion. The tool then uses an AI-generated transcript to automatically create a job description based on what the hiring manager asked for during the call.
  • During the interview: Carv records each candidate interview, providing a verbatim transcription of the conversation and lets recruiters know at the end if there are any unanswered questions still to cover. The tool then automatically generates a candidate profile using the transcripts.
  • Post-interview: After the interview, Carv summarizes the conversation and prepares a candidate presentation or recommendation for the hiring manager to review, highlighting whether the candidate is a right fit for the role. It also pre-populates the ATS with candidate data and sends a follow-up message to the candidate.

What users love most about Carv: Talent acquisition teams report that they appreciate how much time the tool saves them by being able to delegate so much of the admin work related to interviews. Carv also keeps recruiters and hiring managers on the same page by acting as a single source of truth, so no information gets lost during the hiring process.

Metaview is an invaluable collaboration tool that can also help recruiters improve their interviewing skills. It trains recruiters by guiding them in how to ask the right questions, improve their phrasing to get better quality answers from candidates and minimize any unintentional interview biases.

MyInterview is an example of zero-touch hiring software, where it uses a combination of asynchronous video interviews, gamified assessments and a virtual TA called Tiana to guide canadidates through the hiring process without any need for live recruiter input.  

The Tiana chatbot asks a set of predefined questions that work like gamified interview assessments. She then uses candidate answers to assesses key personality traits, communication style, and other attributes. The AI also uses machine learning algorithms to analyze video interviews, providing insights on candidate skills, qualifications, and cultural fit.

Recruiters can quickly identify promising candidates based on these AI-generated insights. The platform's customizable interview templates and user-friendly interface make it suitable for businesses seeking a scalable, efficient way to evaluate candidates en masse.
