Artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly used in job recruitment, from screening resumes to conducting interviews. While AI has the potential to make the job interview process more efficient and fair, it also raises concerns about bias and discrimination. This seminar will introduce the findings of our three working papers, including 1) when and how the applicant’s perception of justice affects interview satisfaction; 2) how the applicant’s personality affects the interview performance rated by AI; and 3) the antecedents and consequences of the applicant’s intention to use AI interview. The theoretical and practical implications will be discussed in the seminar.
