Hiring an expert without being one

BlogsHiring an expert without being one

Recruiters are too often bluffed with candidate's exaggerated resumes. Every recruiter is no stranger to candidates who claim to have years of industry experience only to find out the candidate lacks relevant knowledge in the field and has fluffed up their resume. One recruiter shares a story of a 21-year-old recent graduate whose resume stated they had 8 years of project management experience. Somehow the math did not add up but the candidate was able to make it to the first round of interviews because his resume met the job requirements.

Another recruiter shares a story of a candidate restating technical jargon to make himself seem qualified. The recruiter had a hunch that the candidate was overcompensating but even with an assessment test, the candidate was able to score decently. As it turns out, the candidate was sent over the assessment test which was likely taken by someone else. The candidate was unable to perform coding during his second round of face-to-face interviews. It is no shock that in today's competitive labor market candidates are willing to pay hundreds of dollars for another individual to take a performance test or even complete a phone interview. Take a minute to Google proxy interview and it is clear why the talent gap continues to grow. These unfit, yet clever, candidates waste the time and money of recruiters and companies and make it harder to find the right talent.

Resume Check

Proxy interviews, mismatched skills, and fake resumes are serious pain points that have plagued the industry today

Resume Check Pitfalls

These recruiting roadblocks are not uncommon due to the recruiter's limited knowledge and tools to assess technical candidates. The candidates applying for technical positions use this window of opportunity to bluff recruiters. Even assessment tests fall short of empowering recruiters to find the top talent due to static questions and plagiarism. Assessment test does not solve the root of the problem to prevent skillset mismatch and plagiarism. Candidates have the ability to do an open book interview with assessment tests. Even if candidates take the test in front of the recruiter, the recruiter's time is drained instead. Wouldn't it make more sense for recruiters to have candidates validated prior to even having to meet? Simply put, an assessment test is not an efficient practice for recruiters to eliminate bad hires or time wasted with the wrong candidates.
