3 Real Reasons Recruiters Will be Replaced by AI

What was your reaction to the title of this blog? Did you read and think: “Who is this jerk who thinks recruiters can be replaced by computers?” Or maybe you thought: “This guy must have no recruiting experience to say such a stupid thing.” My guess is that there were some 4-letter words that came to mind that I cannot post here!
