Adaface: Automated Testing of Java Skills of Candidates

Hiring the best talent is one of the toughest and time-taking challenges that an organization has to do periodically. Due to the ease of applying for vacancies, there has been an increase in the size of the candidate pool ( especially for remote working ), making it harder for hiring teams to process the applicants and make an informed decision.

If hiring for a particular role, say for a Java developer, it becomes a tedious task to interview each candidate to vet their skills. Organizations are strategically investing in data-driven hiring solutions and tools to improve the candidate experience and in turn the company image.

Hiring teams now require potential applicants to take pre-employment assessments during the recruiting process to screen out the best talent from the candidate pool.

Adaface helps staffing agencies and organizations to test their candidates on job skills using automated tests with AI capabilities.

You will be prompted with a dialogue box, where you need to enter the details of the particular candidate such as their name and email address.

If the assessment is to be used for a large candidate pool, set the assessment link as public under the Public Links section and share it with your candidates via email or by putting it up on your careers page.

You can also try the assessment for yourself by clicking on the Try button.

Once the candidates complete the assessments, the report is automatically generated and will be sent to your email address. Granular data based on the performance of the candidates can be found on the recruiter dashboard.

Assessing the coding skills of the applicants

After filtering the candidate pool, you can test the coding and communication skills of a prospective candidate by conducting pair-programming interviews. Use PairPro, to assess the skills of a candidate in a developer-friendly environment.

Interviewers can grade the candidate during the interview session and the scorecard is available for download after the session is over.
