5 Ways to Support Inclusive Hiring with Recruitment AI Assist: Job Descriptions

Faith Peterson | June 23, 2023

Achieving inclusive hiring goals isn’t affected only by which finalists we choose to hire. Interview bias happens when interviewers or people involved in the hiring process let their emotions and personal feelings sway their judgments about a candidate, which leads to a situation where candidates are evaluated inaccurately.

In this series we’ll explore real world examples of ways to use interviewstream’s AI Recruitment Assist and AI Interview Question Assist tools to achieve the goal of reducing interview bias within the hiring process.

We’ll use the example of fictitious company Acme Widgets, a growing company of about 250 employees in an outlying suburb of a major metro area. Now that their Customer Service team has grown to six, Acme wants to hire for the newly-created Customer Service Supervisor position. As a Human Resources generalist at Acme, we’ll need to:

  • write a job description
  • advertise the opening
  • screen candidates
  • and advise the hiring manager in the interviewing process. 

In the hiring process, we’ll have to write different emails to cover situations where we don’t already have a template. And we’ll need a more general-purpose tool when we discover that Acme could benefit from some internal training on how to hire fairly. 

Part 1: Creating an inclusive (and legal) job description with AI for recruitment

We don’t have a job description for the new Supervisor position, so let’s generate one using the AI Recruitment Assist in interviewstream. First, open the AI Recruitment Assist tool and select the Job Description content type.

But what should we put in the box asking for the main points to cover? We have some choices. First, we’ll try just entering the job title. 


Example 1: Use Job Title alone to generate Job Description 

First, we’re just going to enter “Customer Service Supervisor” in the box about main points to cover. We’ll leave the language tone set to the default “Standard and click Submit.

The AI recruiting tool offers us a draft job description. I can copy or download the draft so that I can refine it with the hiring manager before sending it off to ask the company’s legal team to review our new job description. 

Here’s the AI Recruitment Assist tool’s suggested job description and responsibilities. Look it over, then check out the second example below:

Example 2: Use Job Title plus structure guidance 

This time we’re going to include a list of sections we want to include in the ai recruiting tool, and an additional instruction about EEO/ADA content. We’ll leave the language tone set to the default Standard once again, and click Submit.
