TechScreen has helped us grow our business in three impactful ways: Our recruiters can screen out candidates with embellished resumes. Our account executives can sell with more conviction and get prompt decisions from hiring managers. Our junior recruiters are far more confident and sound like seasoned recruiters, giving them real credibility when talking to candidates. It has absolutely improved their performance.
Speaking to a developer can be daunting for a recruiter. This is especially true for a junior recruiter, but self-confidence is not a surrogate for detailed knowledge even when you are talking about a veteran recruiter. There are plenty of recruiters who kid themselves into giving themselves more credit than they deserve for being “technical”, but there are ways you can size up if a veteran candidate “gets it” or if they are a hack.
