Hiring an expert without being one- empowering a recruiter like never before!
Rahul
Recruiters are too often bluffed with candidate’s exaggerated resumes. Every recruiter is no stranger to the candidates that claim to have years of industry experience… only to find out the candidate lacks relevant knowledge in the field and has fluffed up their resume. One recruiter shares a story of a 21 year old recent graduate whose resume stated they had 8 years of project management experience. Somehow the math did not add up but the candidate was able to make it to the first round of interviews because his resume met the job requirements.
Another recruiter shares a story of a candidate restate technical jargon to make himself seem qualified. The recruiter had a hunch that the candidate was overcompensating but even with an assessment test the candidate was able to score decently. As it turns out, the candidate was sent over the assessment test which was likely taken by someone else. The candidate was unable to perform coding during his second round of face-to-face interview. It is no shock that in today’s competitive labor market candidates are willing to pay hundreds of dollars for another individual to take a performance tests or even complete a phone interview. Take a minute to Google “proxy interviews” and it is clear why the talent gap continues to grow. These unfit, yet clever, candidates waste time and money of the recruiters and companies and make it harder to find the right talent.
Proxy interviews, mismatched skill sets and fake resume are serious pain pointsthat have plagued the industry today
These recruiting roadblocks are not uncommon due to recruiters limited knowledge and tools to assess technical candidates. The candidates applying for technical positions use this window of opportunity to bluff recruiters. Even assessment tests fall short of empowering recruiters to find the top talent due to static questions and plagiarism. Assessment test do not solve the root of the problem to prevent skill set mismatch and plagiarism. Candidates have the ability to do “open book interviewing” with assessment tests. Even if candidates take the test in front of the recruiter, the recruiter’s time is drained instead. Wouldn’t it make more sense for recruiters to have candidates validated prior to even having to meet? Simply put, assessment test are not efficient practices for recruiters to eliminate “bad” hires or time wasted with the wrong candidates.
