About Wizehire: 
Founded in 2014, Wizehire is an award-winning, end-to-end hiring solution that marries innovative software with hands-on, expert coaching to help business leaders confidently build their teams. 

Talroo, a leading provider of technology to power the recruitment of frontline and essential workers, is pleased to announce the release of SmartScreen, the new AI-assisted Chat-to-Apply Screening tool. This elegant new screening chatbot solves a common problem for both job seekers and employers. Approximately 7 out of 10 employers (Zippia Recruitment Statistics, 2023) find it difficult to hire skilled candidates. SmartScreen automatically extracts and surfaces job requirements using AI in a custom chatbot.

As candidates interact before applying, SmartScreen helps candidates understand and verify job requirements before applying. Once a job’s requirements are reviewed and the candidate provides feedback, SmartScreen shares insight into how the candidate’s qualifications match the employer’s requirements. If there’s a great match, candidates are automatically routed to start the application process. If not, SmartScreen provides a helpful mismatch requirements message, but allows the candidate, if they would like, to proceed. The candidate’s responses then inform future job matching to ensure a more positive candidate experience.    

“SmartScreen solves one of the biggest challenges most employers experience in recruiting, and one of the biggest challenges candidates experience in job searching,” said Thad Price, CEO of Talroo. “By greatly enhancing quality matching, we are reducing the amount of unqualified applications, improving outcomes for all, and moving businesses forward. The most exciting aspect of this feature for our employer partners is that SmartScreen uses AI to extract requirements and instantly provides a custom job-level chatbot. There’s no additional setup time or costs required, just use an existing ATS sync and we take care of the rest. This not only reduces both time-to-placement and costs for the employer, but eliminates the frustration that many job seekers experience during their search. Using SmartScreen, we are able to attract the right talent audiences and then get the best, suitable candidates in front of the right job at the right time without any heavy lifting by our customers.”
