THE OFFICIAL 2021 GUIDE
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most companies moved hiring processes from in-person to remote. On top of that, mass layoffs across industries mean that your job postings receive even more candidates than ever before. One of the companies we work with recently started scaling their full-stack engineering team and receives 200 applications every 30 days. They want their engineers in different time zones to interview and recommend the top candidates. How is any technical recruiter supposed to possibly coordinate a hiring effort in these circumstances?
The learn to code movement has introduced new career opportunities to many people, which is fantastic. But it’s also made technical recruiting more challenging, as the overwhelming majority of applicants don’t have the required experience for the jobs they’re applying to. That’s where code assessments platforms come in.
There are many code assessment platforms with countless features and differences which can be exhausting to navigate. But don’t worry – we’ll walk you through many of them so that you can make an informed decision. Remember that not long ago, most companies just asked candidates a series of riddles and hired based on vague, irrelevant, and biased criteria. Thanks to code assessment platforms, today’s hiring process is far more equitable, sustainable, and scalable. You’re on the path to a better future!
