Pre-employment skills testing is essential for employers to find out if applicants have the appropriate knowledge for the job. With VidCruiter’s digital skills testing platform, hiring managers will be able to test for a variety of different skills in candidates. We can check for Excel knowledge, typing speeds, RFP simulations, script reading, and much more.
The pre-employment assessments can go beyond your typical text-based tests. Recruiters can add video, audio clips, and photos to make the process more engaging while letting candidates react to real workplace scenarios. The system also allows applicants to complete the test without being redirected to another system.
Without a scoring system, it can be difficult for your hiring team to compare candidates. Scores can be set on a per question basis and customized to match your organization’s criteria. The system automatically calculates the score and makes it simple for your team to identify who are the top performers.
If you are looking to help your team save time, you can pair the skills testing platform with VidCruiter’s advanced customized workflow system to help automate the process. Not only will the platform filter out candidates based on their responses, but it will also automatically move them to the next step if they achieve the appropriate score. You can even have rejection emails automatically sent to unqualified applicants.
Unless you’re monitoring an applicant while they complete a skills test, you may be missing out on valuable information. A candidate’s reaction and body language can provide your hiring team with more profound insights than merely looking if their answer was right or wrong. By administering skills tests through a video interviewing platform, your organization can receive the complete picture without having to supervise the test directly.
Certain positions require individuals to work efficiently in fast-paced and high-pressure environments. Adding time limits ranging from a few seconds to a few days and restricting the number of attempts that candidates have when completing screening questions are a few ways you can simulate your workplace environment during the recruitment process. Incorporating high-pressure situations into the screening process is an efficient way for your hiring team to eliminate candidates who would not perform well in the environment.
After building a skills test in the platform, it can be saved as a template and easily implemented for future positions. Instead of starting from scratch every time, just make the necessary changes to the template so it meets the needs of the new job. Alternatively, VidCruiter offers a variety of skills testing templates to help you get set up. You can keep the templates as is, or adjust them to suit your needs.
With VidCruiter, you have access to a network of partners that will build custom tests for any of your positions, including those which require an advanced set of skills. Not only will the custom designed tests be a perfect fit, but they will also integrate quickly into VidCruiter’s testing platform.
VidCruiter’s skill testing software enables your candidates to complete any test at their convenience from anywhere in the world. Depending on the nature of the quiz, applicants can do it from the mobile device of their choice. Furthermore, your hiring team has the flexibility to review the results on any device.
