iPad Winner!

by Eric Sydell

Shaker Consulting Group is pleased to announce the winner of our 2010 Virtual Job Tryout® Customer Survey Apple iPad drawing, and it is Kate Mitchell, Retail Staffing Manager for Starbucks Coffee Company. We want to thank all of the survey participants, and let you know that we are busy pouring over the responses so that we can continue tweaking the recruiter experience to make it even better (while naturally sipping our favorite Starbucks beverage!).

We are very grateful to receive so many positive comments about the Virtual Job Tryout, and Kate herself reports that the Virtual Job Tryout is a critical competency-based pre-employment assessment in her hiring process that allows her staff to assess leadership/team management and customer service capabilities. In addition, her recruiters now spend less time in the interview and get a much better understanding of candidate strengths and limitations than what they were achieving with resumes and screening questions!

Thanks again to Kate and all the rest of our end users, and watch this space for more customer insights into the Virtual Job Tryout in the near future (click the tag ‘surveys’ to quickly find related articles).
