Problem

Problem

  • Hiring managers were not happy with the quality of candidates shortlisted for interviews.
  • The team felt that they were wasting too much engineering time interviewing unfit candidates with promising resumes and the interview to offer ratio was very low.
  • The time to hire was >2 months.

Proposed Solution

Proposed Solution

The proposed solution was to integrate Adaface skills assessment chatbot with their careers page. As soon as a candidate hits apply for a technical role, they are redirected to a chatbot conversation with an intelligent bot, Ada who collects their details first (name, contact details, resume etc) and then does a technical assessment to validate their skills for the role, with programming and debugging questions to check their coding skills.
