To screen in skilled lateral candidates for technical roles in IT department, by using a reliable assessment process

The Solution

Previous Hiring Approach

To test skills of candidates, the company used to arrange a technical interview. The interview would be headed by company’s technical experts. After identifying primary and secondary skills in the Job Description, questions would be curated to test candidates’ dexterity.
This process was unable to screen out technically skilled candidates. Time and eort used up in technical interviews was not reaping much output for the company, and creating a lot of redundancy. An alternate screening process, at the first stage of hiring, was the immediate need.

New Hiring Approach with iMocha assessments

The first round of screening was replaced with iMocha’s assessments. After detailed mapping of primary and secondary skills in the Job Description, ready to use assessments were curated to test technical skills accurately. High quality content was incorporated in these ready to use assessments and they were closely aligned to match job role. Finally, after validating them with global subject matter experts at Mochaworks, invitations were rolled out to candidates.


  • Good response rate from lateral candidates, with 83% invited to appear ratio.
  • Manual efforts replaced with automated screening process, saving time drastically.
  • Candidate performance analytics automatically generated to enable quick shortlisting.
  • Only skill-fit candidates screened in for interviews.
