Recruiters are usually faced with heavy workload and tight deadlines. When Recruiters turn towards job portals, they usually seek to pick out the best candidates and hire them in the shortest possible time. Any job portal works effectively when it provides value for both sides of the ecosystem, in this case – job seekers and employers.
For Recruiters the main challenge was technical skills quantification. A lot of time was spent going through the resumes, coordinating with the candidates, and scheduling interviews. Many of the shortlisted candidates did not possess the adequate skills and fell flat in the interviews. Recruiters usually do not have technical knowledge and often shortlist candidates based on their resumes. It is then left up to the Hiring Managers to evaluate the candidates for their technical skills. This even leads to the right candidates being neglected.
The job seekers on the other hand do not get the platform to highlight their profiles which will help them connect with the relevant job roles. Many just create their profile but remain inactive due to inefficient processes and disengagement.
Techfetch partnered with iMocha to provide assessments. Techfetch validated the skills of the job seekers through two ways;
When job seekers appeared for the assessments, they could pin their scores to their profile. This helped them get noticed when recruiters searched for relevant skills. On the other hand, recruiters received profiles that were evaluated and hence decreased the dependency on the Technical team. They could attach the reports and send it to their Hiring Managers to set up the interviews.
