Sked Social, a leading Instagram scheduler, hires employees from all around the globe. Their job openings get 100s of applications, making candidate screening extremely time-consuming and difficult. With our skills tests, they managed to cut their screening time by 80% and the overall time-to-hire by 50%. Here’s how they did it.
Sked Social is a remote company based in Melbourne and employees all over the world.
Historically, Sked Social used traditional hiring methods with resumes and cover letters to find new talent. However, doing background checks and going through hundreds of resumes usually took them weeks.
Resumes and Linkedin profiles weren't good ways to tell which candidates were actually a good fit for the role. The needed a tool that would allow them to reliably screen high volumes of applicants in short periods of time.
Sked Social approached us to help hire a Content Marketing Strategist.
Due to their lack of dedicated recruiter or HR Manager, they needed a tool that could be quickly set up and used by the hiring managers themselves.
Dunja Lazic, Sked Social VP of Marketing, started by writing down everything the new hire will be working on. She then focused on the 3-4 most important things and came up with skills-based questions relating to that.
She also used questions from our question library, which made building the test a lot easier and faster.
Screening 800 applicants and narrowing it down to the 10 best ones would normally take Sked Social a few weeks.
With us on their side, it took them about an hour.
