What is Candidate Screening?

The main concern of all recruiters is – whether the candidate can get the job done or not. Candidate screening compares the candidate’s knowledge, experience and skills to the job description and filters out the best tech talent to move forward in the hiring funnel.

Challenges in Candidate Screening

Challenges in Developer Screening

Although recruitment is anyways filled with a lot of hurdles like hiring manager expectations, competitive talent market, etc. 8 in 10 recruiters consider screening the most difficult part of the hiring process here’s why –

  • Time to Fill – It’s the only step when your talent funnel is filled the most, screening everyone without a tool seems impossible. Taking too long to assess all the candidates from the funnel can delay business growth and give other companies a time advantage. And we don’t want either of these.
  • Quality of hire – Quality is always at risk and traditional one-dimensional screening methods can leave room for the chance of a bad hire. You always want to double-check that you are hiring the best of your talent pool. But creating the perfect assessment for a technical role requires time and understanding of the skills required which is difficult without technical knowledge.
  • Choosing the right tool – Candidate screening not just differs between organizations, it even differs between roles. You need a screening tool that can help you in the long term, to screen for ever-changing future skills and roles as well. Understanding the bigger picture and finding the right tool from an ocean of options can take some trial and error.
