Software and product development company Mooncascade wanted to make their first candidate selection step more efficient. By replacing resumes with our skills tests, they managed to narrow down 246 candidates to the top 6 in half a day. Here's how they did it.
Mooncascade wanted to make their initial candidate selection as fast and objective. They were holding too many interviews with under-qualified candidates and quickly realised resumes don't tell the whole story.
They needed a solution that would enable them to pick out the cream of the crop very quickly.
Mooncascade used our skills tests to hire their Product Manager. They set up a test that would instantly show who had the right skills for the job.
They shared the test on Linkedin & Facebook, and received 246 candidates. Normally, that number would be closer to 50.
Instead of having to manually evaluate 246 candidates, we instantly identified the 29 applicants who had 'passed' the skills test.
They further narrowed down the list of 29 by checking the answers to the open ended questions until they had 6 very strong candidates ready to interview.
Mooncascades was able to focus their energy on the top 6 candidates, and only interview the best instead of wasting precious resources scanning through hundreds of applications.
