AI Will Never Replace a Recruiter…Here’s Why w/Alden Galvanek

Cutting edge technologies can be a threat, a crutch, a challenge or a tool – the choice is ours. The rise of ChatGPT has once again raised the question of whether recruiters are going to be replaced. There are definitely ways AI can disrupt how we do things (and that can benefit us). One thing AI can’t generate is the relationship at the heart of this job. 

AI can drive efficiency and create systems that improve our touchpoints, but it just can’t change what leads to success. How can we leverage AI as a tool that makes us better at what we do? How do we use AI to foster relationship management, not hijack the relationship itself? 

In this episode, President and Co-Owner of The Chatham Group, Alden Galvanek shares how to keep your fingers on the pulse of technology in the recruiting business.
