The Challenge

Not attracting enough qualified candidates to apply

Scoro only hires the top-notch talent. That’s why their recruitment process focuses on thorough interviews. While this approach was successful for some roles, more demanding technical roles were going unfilled for months.

The QA Automation Engineer position stayed empty for 7 months. The right skillset was impossible to find in Estonia, and the candidates who were applying weren’t qualified enough.

Scoro needed a solution for efficient pre-screening in order to interview only the top candidates, while also successfully attracting the best passive talent out there.

“We don’t make assumptions based on resumes, so we invited lots of people to interviews, which took too much time.”

The Solution

Over 75% of employed people are passively looking for a new job. However, the prospect of wasting time rewriting their resumes is what keeps the best of them from applying.

Our skills tests are fun, engaging, and very quick to complete. Quality candidates like the idea of testing their abilities, even if it doesn't lead to a job. Implementing this method allowed Scoro to capture huge interest from passive candidates and ultimately fill two positions in under one month (after a 7 month dry spell).
