The AI ​​platform has introduced manual work to alleviate the pain of recruitment

Talent recruitment and hiring is one of the most important HR functions. Currently, employer demand for workers in the Philippines is very high and this is accelerating the trend known as the great resignation in our world. This means employers are meeting the deadline to ensure quality talent is properly identified and recruited immediately before the competition.

However, it is easier said than done that an average employer spends at least three to five hours each working day on CVs or resumes as well as initially interviewing applicants. This is the most manually intensive part of the process. The time used by employers at this stage may be applied to other priorities.

This insight has inspired Metrocity AI to create a recruitment platform that solves the long hours of pain spent on CV screening and initial virtual interviews. Companies may use the Asynchronous Video Interview (AVI) functionality on the platform to invite applicants to record themselves on camera as they answer questions related to the culture-fit, behavior and skills provided by the company.

The videos of the submitted applicant are then processed by the platform. Applicants with the answers lined up with the company proceed to the next step. As it uses AI, the platform further refines the answers and profiles that will pass the screening process, creating a powerful screening system unique to a company as it processes more applicants.

The platform also has a CV screening function that matches unprocessed CVs with job opportunities in the company. Once matched, it will send an invitation to pre-screened applicants to conduct asynchronous video interviews at their own time.

This month, MetroCity unveiled a Freemium package for AI companies. This means that companies can use the platform absolutely free.

MetroCity AI is part of UP Diliman’s UPSCALE Incubation Program’s Batch 10 startup. They are from UP Engineering Research and Development Foundation, Inc. (UPERDFI) and a recipient of Accenture Startup Grants through UPSCALE Innovation Hub.
