Use Audio/Video Response Interviews to Get to Know the Candidate Behind the Resume
Recruiters and HR managers rely on resumes to screen and hire candidates. But how reliable are they? Since candidates want to make a good impression, they sometimes exaggerate skill levels, claim to be proficient with computer applications they barely know, or even claim to have experience they do not have.
This means you can end up hiring candidates who look great on paper and are impressive during interviews, only to have to go through the recruiting and hiring process again in a few months when the new hire does not work out. Since it takes an average of 45 days and costs $1,500 to $5,000 to hire a new employee, this can have a big impact on overall productivity. Watch our video to learn more.
"Our strategic partnership with eSkill has most helped us in terms of recruitment for jobs which demand very specific and measurable skills, such as that of an IT programmer. The specifically targeted online assessments helped us set up entire teams of professional programmers who have taken our business to the next level and have contributed to establishing long-lasting business relationships with our clients.We found that administering eSkill tests offered all the information we needed when hiring, and was a great economic solution."
