HR leaders looking to hire early talent can engage and encourage graduating students, even with campuses shut down
Eightfold.ai, the inventor of the Talent Intelligence Platform, the first AI-powered solution for enterprise talent needs, announced Eightfold Virtual Event Recruiting, a solution for organizations to find, engage, and recruit talent using online events.
Companies and entire classes of job seekers, such as college students and veterans, need new ways to meet, and Eightfold Virtual Event Recruiting enables companies and job seekers to connect. This solution gives companies the ability to recruit at a far greater scale than is possible for physical recruiting events. In the current environment, the technology offers an additional way for companies to continue hiring at a time when physical meetings are not possible. Eightfold Virtual Event Recruiting also helps individuals, in particular students, to find the right career paths for themselves in an uncertain environment.

“With events cancelled, onsite interviews cancelled, and everyone working from home, recruiting is significantly impacted. This is creating lost opportunity for individuals,” said Ashutosh Garg, Co-Founder and CEO of Eightfold.ai. “Eightfold was started to enable the right career for everyone, and our mission today is more important than ever. We are proud to launch a virtual hiring solution to enable recruiting events to continue and, we hope, to help ease some of the anxiety and pain that candidates are feeling. We never imagined covid-19, but we can help to ensure candidates are still contacted, encouraged, and hired.”
“When they could travel, recruiters could only go to a few places. Right now, they are not going anywhere,” Garg continued. “Travel will resume, and when it does, Eightfold Virtual Event Recruiting will still give employers the ability to be everywhere that matters to hire the best talent for their company.”
Eightfold Virtual Event Recruiting takes advantage of the sophisticated deep learning AI within the Eightfold Talent Intelligence Platform. The solution fits seamlessly into Eightfold’s AI solutions for Talent Experience, Candidate Relationship Management, Talent Acquisition, and Interview Scheduling. Candidates are invited to the right recruiting events for them, see which positions match their skills and potential, and schedule time with a recruiter, all within minutes.
“As an HR leader, I know how important recruiting events can be at this time of the year,” commented Tracy Flynn, Vice President of Human Resources at Eightfold.ai. “University job fairs are shut down this year, as well as valuable hiring opportunities like trade shows and hiring events for veterans. So it is more important than ever for companies to reach out to these talented individuals, introduce themselves, and answer their questions. Companies that can still do this will have an advantage in attracting the many thousands of top recruits who are waiting at home.”
With its Talent Intelligence Platform, Eightfold.ai has signed up leading organizations as customers all around the world, with more than 100 enterprise customers in less than two years. Customer impacts have included substantial increases in hiring efficiency, avoidance of workforce reduction through talent redeployment, and improvements in hiring diversity, among other outcomes.
