Online Assessment Platforms in Recruitment: Why and How?

Assessments are an essential part of the recruiting process and are sandwiched between the initial screening process and the final interview. Assessments provide concrete, objective results, unlike resumes and interviews, that are subjective and can be fudged. A well-designed assessment can be standardized for all applicants, and the results of the tests can be used to make a more informed decision when hiring the right candidate. Objective and validated metrics prove whether a particular candidate has the knowledge, skills, and ability to perform a specific job or not.
