Virtual Job Tryout is Better Than Traditional Approaches

Better for Candidates

Candidates must be respected as decision makers, too. They deserve a robust and insightful experience that helps them understand the demands of the job. Virtual Job Tryout technology is used to formulate typical job scenarios, providing candidates opportunities to solve problems and perform actual work tasks they would be likely to encounter. A realistic job preview educates and engages candidates while capturing a highly accurate work sample that predicts overall performance and measures competencies critical for success.

Better for Recruiters

Candidate-score reports based on HireScience™ enable recruiters to combine the best of predictive analytics with their own expertise and judgment. Such empowered decision making translates into better key recruiting metrics: fewer phone screens, lower interview-to-hire ratios, higher offer-to-acceptance ratios, and faster time-to-fill rates.

Better for Companies

Job-specific assessments deliver accurate predictors of new-hire success. Shaker’s Virtual Job Tryout technology has been deployed across dozens of industries for positions ranging from entry-level to management and can be customized to convey your company’s brand and workplace culture. Shaker’s technology helps recruiters and hiring managers be more efficient and effective, enabling them to deliver the best talent for their organizations. 

Virtual Job Tryout technology can integrate seamlessly with your existing applicant tracking technology platform. Shaker has integrations in place with many of today’s leading talent platforms.  

Exceptional Results Require Superior Methods

Easy May Not Be Effective

The internet has made applying for jobs easier than ever, which often means less useful candidate information for employers who find determining best fit harder than ever. Shaker’s technology collects relevant data. To see potential, observe performance. A work sample allows your talent acquisition team to compare and contrast performance potential across a candidate pool. Hiring a great team requires great data, and Shaker’s smart technology will help your business make great hiring decisions.
