For businesses and brands of all sizes, hiring is a part of the growth process. However, the process of hiring has completely changed over the past two decades. While the focus of building a strong resume is still key, it’s no longer about making sure it’s printed on the highest quality paper possible, then handed off or dropped off at a physical office where applicants are hoping to be hired. Now it’s all about building resumes online and using sites like LinkedIn to build up connections and apply to job listings with a simple click of a button.
It’s not just job applicants who have had to deal with such changes, but also businesses and brands who do the hiring as well. With a more automated process in place for applying to multiple job listings and uploading resumes online, this has also lead to increased pre-hiring and screening overload — often with thousands of resumes and applicants applying for just a single position. Without the proper management and pre-screening tools in place, not only will an organization not have the bandwidth to navigate through all applicable resumes, but they will also be using up their valuable resources and potentially missing out on the best potential hires in the process.
Along with the many advancements of resume building and applying to literally hundreds of jobs within a short period of time, online assessments have made the job applicant hiring and screening process a lot easier as well. With online assessments businesses and brands no longer have to put in the tedious hours of work to sift through endless job applications. Instead, applicants can be walked through an online assessment process that can collect, store, analyze and report their data and responses, while weeding out the best potential hires for your organization. Best of all, this process and be automated and used time and time again.
In this article, we are going to take a look at how online assessments are changing the way businesses and brands hire and screen applicants, while also improving their time management, costs, and resources in the process.
