The practice of employee selection has become heavily dependent on software and the technology systems used to deploy it. Once an administratively burdensome process, selection is now supported by a variety of technologies that are designed to engage candidates while assessing their suitability for employment. A hiring process might now begin with a social media contact, seamlessly screen online for basic qualifications, route acceptable candidates to an online test, and invite those who pass to an in-depth assessment; technology will support each of these steps, as well as the interviewing process and eventual onboarding into the organization.
