HR Tech Companies Making News.
Karat, the interviewing company, just announced the launch of Karat Qualify, a top-of-funnel skills-assessment for organizations hiring software engineers. Qualify reimagines the concept of candidate screening using a short multiple-choice assessment to replace outdated resume screens and code tests. The highly approachable format creates a fair, candidate-friendly experience that produces faster assessment results, higher completion rates, leveling recommendations, and more qualified candidates moving through the hiring funnel.
Qualify is a 15-question exercise built on Karat’s adaptive assessment technology. For recruiters and hiring managers, deploying Qualify at scale is exceedingly simple. First, hiring teams select an assessment topic from Karat’s library of 20+ pre-built topic areas. Next, candidates receive an invitation to take the on-demand, self-administered assessment. The content is dynamically selected based on previous answers, providing candidates with more opportunities to demonstrate their skills and expertise, and producing a nuanced hiring signal based on the results. Finally, as candidates complete the exercise, recruiters review the actionable recommendations and move forward with the top talent.
“Code tests suffer from high drop off rates and they produce an inconsistent and rudimentary signal, while resume screens reinforce a lot of the bias that exists in tech today,” said Scott Bonneau, EVP of Product and Operations at Karat. “Karat Qualify empowers recruiters to engage with more candidates and break the cycle of pedigree bias by uncovering the candidates with the right skills for the job, not just the ones with the right words on their resume.”
