Indeed Assessments emphasizes capabilities to help employers connect with qualified talent
AUSTIN, Texas – May 14, 2018 – Indeed, the world’s number one job site, announced today it has launched Indeed Assessments, a platform that helps employers automate the screening process so they can make faster, more informed candidate evaluations. Indeed Assessments, born from Indeed’s acquisition of Interviewed in 2017, allows employers to screen candidates for skills specifically related to their open jobs rather than relying on just a resume, helping to reduce bias in the hiring process.
“Resumes are not enough – they offer just one dimension of a candidate’s experience and are time consuming for hiring managers and recruiters to sift through,” said Raj Mukherjee, SVP of Product at Indeed. “Assessments also helps to democratize hiring by giving job seekers an equal opportunity to showcase their qualifications when applying for jobs, so that they are able to find the right opportunities faster and easier.”
With Indeed Assessments, employers can screen candidates for skills related to a variety of roles and industries including technology, sales and customer service. All assessments have been designed by psychologists and can easily be added to an employer’s Indeed job posting or sent directly to candidates. Employers can choose from over 50 pre-built assessments or can custom build their own to fit their individual hiring needs.
Assessments is currently available to U.S. employers to use for free in 2018 and can also be integrated with a number of Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS). Learn more here and at https://www.indeed.com/assessments.
