New research into job-seeker attitudes to digitization, automation and AI in the recruitment process claims to reveal how job-seekers are cheating recruitment technology platforms, to better their chances of landing a job. The study, Hiring Humans vs. Recruitment Robots, identified several tactics used by survey responders. Of the tactics used, just over a fifth (22 percent) have searched online to find out how other people have been hired, a similar number (19 percent) have used buzzwords in their CV in order to manipulate an automated system, 15 percent have lied or exaggerated about their experience to get an interview, while nearly one in ten (8 percent) have cheated on a psychometric, skills or other kind of test.
