Since we hire in India, we receive a very large number of candidate applications for our open roles. While there are very strong applications from the best engineers, they get mixed with several hundred applications from candidates who are not qualified. Being a lean recruitment team, it becomes exhausting to separate the signal in the noise. We were previously using another assessment tool which is very popular in the IT industry, it was not effective in shortlisting candidates- our hiring managers were not happy with the quality of candidates who were shortlisted.
The factors that were important to us in deciding which assessment tool to switch to were:
- The satisfaction of our hiring managers with respect to the quality of shortlisting was the key decision making factor.
- Test taking rate: Having seen a really low test taking rate of ~30% with the previous assessment tool, we were evaluating options against this metric.
- Candidate friendliness: Being a candidate friendly recruitment team, we know our long term talent brand is affected by our vendor decisions.
