Given all the facts, it seems only natural that there would be a better way to find talented people to join your organization. The better way would mean where time and effort be reduced for both the company and the job seekers – using technology to match skill sets of candidates to the jobs available. The various tools and techniques now available make it much simpler to find the most accurate match, without endless job interviews conducted. Face-to-face job interviews may have a personal touch but are severely lacking in truly understanding the candidate’s potential. It is not possible to realize a person’s true worth in a matter of a few minutes of talking, whereas assessment tools and pre-job interview tests prove a lot more effective.
While some candidates may find it cumbersome to take the online assessment tests, the fact is that these tools are objective and provide a clear picture to the company and the candidate of the actual skills and potential. Post the assessment, a short face-to-face interaction helps the candidate to meet the representative of the company, garner insights into the working culture, and gain the opportunity to prove her or his fitment with the company. Both technology and the interaction post the assessment tests together reduce stress for both the company and the candidate while providing detailed insights into what each can expect from the other.
Gaining and retaining top talent today is nothing short of war since skilled people are the foundation of a successful and sustainable business. Using technological tools and techniques, companies can reduce the pain of hiring and job interviews, turning the process into an enjoyable, effective, less stressful, and time-consuming one. The job interview no longer remains necessary, and the process of hiring becomes a science rather than an art, which most companies seem to lack.
