Every day recruiters are overflooded with hundreds of resumes for various job profiles. Now, it is virtually impossible for them to scan every resume manually, compare these, and then invite the shortlisted candidates for an assessment test.
On the other hand, candidates looking for better job opportunities value and prefer to join the companies that make applicant experience a top priority and work on achieving that goal.
In a recent study, Gartner found that a best-in-class applicant experience improved a company’s talent pool exponentially – 95% of applicants say that they would reapply, while 97% say they would refer friends and coworkers. Such is the power of applicant experience.
This is where Skillsz comes to your rescue. It helps recruiters eliminate inefficient candidates, hire the best talents, and promote businesses by offering the best candidate experience. Besides, it helps candidates to get hired quickly.
In a nutshell, Skillsz works as a bridging platform and helps recruiters reach talents and vice-versa.
Now let’s dive deep to find out how Skillsz helps recruiters and candidates –
Easy job posting
Skillsz makes it easy for recruiters to create and post a job for various tech profiles only with a few clicks. There is no need to set up and manually log in to individual accounts from each social platform and post the job. Besides, you can eliminate the need to keep track of social media platforms and results generated from these.
Skillsz is the one-stop solution for job creation and posting. Furthermore, recruiters can add job descriptions, proficiency levels, and other important things related to the job. Once recruiters post jobs successfully, they will receive all job applications in their Skillsz profile.
Improved cost per hire
Most businesses can’t invest a lump sum amount for the screening process every time they hire new talent. But they could not afford to hire the wrong resource either because of an inefficient screening process; they may recruit the wrong candidate who would drastically affect their bottom lines. So, Skillsz will be the ultimate choice for Talent Acquisition Teams when it comes to the competitive recruitment and staffing process.
The minimum cost of a recruiter per month is around $2000 to $3000, while the cost of different plans of Skillsz per user per month is much lower. So, by choosing Skillsz for pre-employment screening, recruiters can save a considerable amount per hire.
Better quality of hire
There is a famous saying: “the early bird catches the worm”. According to recent research, 80% of recruiters claim to have a better quality of hire ever since they have chosen ATS in their businesses. Another study says that the application of a talented candidate stays for approximately 10 to 15 days.
By accelerating the recruitment process with Skillsz, a pre-employment automated screening platform, you can quickly grab the talented opportunities that other competitive businesses could have otherwise occupied. Nowadays, organizations are sharply defining their quality of hires by using various metrics. Skillsz assists you in building your talent pool faster.
Faster and better decisions
When it comes to hiring candidates for a company, there is no chance of making a mistake. It is because a single wrong decision can prove detrimental to the organization’s financial position. Skillsz provides complete access to all applications and presents them on the same front. For this, recruiters can compare candidates easily and make better and faster-hiring decisions.
A strong employer branding is what makes a favorable first impression of the company. With attractive employer branding, a business can easily secure a strong position in the market. A unique employer brand can make a significant difference by encouraging a passive employee to join the company.
Using Skillsz, recruiters can use their companies’ domains and logos without mentioning the name of Skillsz. With this, your candidates will think that you have designed the coding assessments tests, and it will help create a good impression about your brand.
Streamlined recruitment process
Skillsz makes the whole recruitment process easy to manage and execute. With a streamlined development between the successive tasks, the HR department can easily create jobs, manage and review candidates, and shortlist them based on their skills. And all these help the recruitment agencies work faster and efficiently.

Makes job finding hassle-free
With Skillsz, finding a job is now easy and hassle-free for candidates. No more you need to search for jobs on multiple platforms, apply them one-by-one, and then wait grievously for replies from the recruiters. Besides, you don’t need to visit the workplace to appear for the screening during this pandemic-driven situation. Skillsz eliminates all these hassles for you.
Once a recruiter posted a job via Skillsz and invited you, you can view the requirement. And if you find yourself suitable for the job profile, you can click on the click and appear for the test. It is as simple as this.
Prepare for the test with sample test
Yes, you heard it right. Skillsz allows you to prepare for the actual pre-screening employment tests with sample tests. These are practice exams that you can take before you appear for the final test.
These tests help you improve the understanding of concepts, develop the right strategy, understand time management, and thus, boost your confidence and minimize the chances of mistakes. It will be an excellent advantage for candidates.
Take test easily
As you already have a concept of the test, you can take it easily. All the questions are MCQ questions with four answers given. And instructions are given clearly. So, you can go through the instructions, read the question and then answer these properly.
But when you are taking pre-screening employee tests through Skillsz, you need to keep a few points in mind. You should complete the test within the given time; you could not change the window or open a new window during the test, you could not copy and paste the questions or take screenshots. All these are fraudulent activities, and you could be blocked for taking unfair measures during the test.
It is another excellent feature that candidates can experience when taking skill assessment tests through Skillsz. If you are not satisfied with the answers, have doubts about the answer, or if you think that none of the given answers are correct, or if anything specific to say about the question, you can simply click on the feedback option that comes with each question, and give your feedback.
Change question if needed
Are you finding it difficult to answer a question, or do the answers given seem inappropriate to you? If your answer is yes, mark the question as inappropriate and change the existing question with a new one. But you could not mark most of the questions as inappropriate and request for changing the question.
It is better to mark maximum of two questions as inappropriate if you really think so. From a candidate’s third attempt, they will be blocked and could not continue the test until a recruiter or user unblocks him/her. So, change a question when you want but wisely.
Get a report
Once you complete a test successfully, now, it is time to get the report. Skillsz sends the detailed report to the recruiters and highlights your performance along with the areas of improvement. Recruiters can decide on this report.
Even before that, they can send you the report with the total score so that you can understand your strengths and weaknesses. As the report is in PDF format, you can easily print it out if needed.
While recruiters search for a way to create a complete requirement workflow effortlessly to source and evaluate candidates and hire the best talents, candidates seek better opportunities to move up on the career ladder.
