the challenges
e-Zest was planning a campus recruitment drive across 10 cities and looking to hire around 50 developers.
The challenge
  • Campus hiring logistics
  • Completing campus recruitments and rolling out offers within a single day
  • Shortlisting candidates based on their Java skills

A typical campus recruitment scenario at e-Zest was as below:

Average no. of students who attempt a test on campus: 130

Time to evaluate a single paper: 7 min (best case)

Average no. of developers evaluating the paper: 3

Total time spent in manually evaluating papers (hrs.): ((130 * 7) / 3) /60 ~= 5 hrs.

Total time spent for a single campus drive: 1.5- 2 days

Besides manual evaluation, there was also the problem of invigilation, which required time and effort.

After spending 5 hrs. in manual evaluation, the process of interviews started, which might stretch the whole night, and then the recruitment team would take a flight to the next destination, often exhausted and sleep-deprived. With the absence of an automated recruitment process, e-Zest was looking at almost 20 days a month when their team would be needed to visit the various campuses and evaluate the candidates. This cost a lot of effort and time.

e-Zest needed an assessment tool that would help them remotely evaluate candidates, filter the irrelevant ones, and identify the best performers in the shortest possible time.

e-Zest formulated a recruitment plan along with iMocha. The HR team created the Aptitude and Java skills tests with the help of iMocha’s Customer Success Team. Candidates were invited to take the test.

With an automated process, the need for manual invigilation and evaluation was eliminated. Since the results were generated instantly, the e-Zest team could focus on interviewing candidates and shortlisting them.

Step by step explanation of the workflow:

  • They did not have a large recruitment team that could reach out to these universities across the USA to participate in career fairs and interact with the students. This hampered their recruitment roadmap.
  • However, more important was the lack of technical resources to evaluate candidates who applied for this role.
