The true challenge in job recruitment is recruiters has no adequate tools to accurately measure skill sets and qualification. Inaccuracy is due to human bias, which leads to injustice.
A story from a victim of conventional hiring system.
This idea is inspired from a friend of us who was rejected by job finder system, simply because he did not have “3 years of experience”.
In reality, he was a really talented programmer and he applied jobs at big companies like IBM and Quintiq. Sadly, the conventional hiring system did listed him out as he was not given a chance to prove his quality at all. Without many choices, he had to pursuit his career with smaller company, that provides less benefits.
On the other hand, that big company has to struggle to deal with another programmer they hired. That person barely do basic problem solving, simply because he is actually not as good as he was in the resume. Well, he had what the recruiter demanded – 3 years of experience.
With “impressive” communication skills, he secured the job even despite his poor technical skills. Just because interview’s conclusion is made of human bias, his skills were not evaluated carefully and his promising resume remains ‘outstanding’.
The Solution – TraitHire
#1 TraitHire is the missing ingredient in today’s conventional systems
Recruiters already has a method to filter out hiring employees’ skills by assigning them technical (for technical job) and interpersonal assessments, so recruiters will make less mistake in hiring. But, these assessments are time-compressing and less effective.
So, we want to offer accurate list of workforce to recruiters, to hire accurate skills and qualification faster. We do not think that employer should spend time, testing job applicants every time they do hiring. Let the system automatically do it, while employers just need to sit back and relax, since more accurate and effective filtration is being done by TraitHire.
The next big thing is our artificial intelligence will outsmart future recruiting by matching job candidates personality with job description or client’s requirement.
#2 Inaccuracy- Problem that is worth fighting
Conventional job finder sites are inaccurate, demotivating, unreliable and unjust.
We want to solve this matter quickly because there are lots of talented programmer out there who need to be treated and rewarded fairly. While employers do need “someone” to advice them on making hiring decisions.
We CAN fake things up just to look good, especially resume. Or candidates can just hire someone else to build their CV, voila, a really REALLY good looking document. Sadly, it is only good on papers.
TraitHire uses real human being personality, taken from job candidates’ brain wave signal using special device. This is a thing which we can never fake up. The personalities are, of course, accurate and reliable.
#3 Personality plays a significant role in workplace behaviors
This study noted the influence of personality does not begin the day a person starts work. Rather, how a person prepares for his or her entrance into the job market and the kind of impression that person makes during the recruiting process also appear to be a function of the applicant’s personality.
Almost all of the companies use personality assessments to assess job candidates’ personality. This shows that industrial organizations are not neglecting personality as indicator in making hiring decision.
Even after assessing personality traits, different organizations may use different methods to assess interpersonal skills such as ability to work in a team, communication, service-oriented, and ability to inspire and etc. These organizations should know that interpersonal skills and personality traits have positive correlation.
Interesting news, we have found that particular cognitive abilities or personality traits influence interpersonal processes and interpersonal skills when they account for task-level demands.
Meanwhile, Klein’s, a meta-analysis found that extroversion and agreeableness are predictive of interpersonal processes and interpersonal skills.
So, based on these evidences…
TraitHire’s aims are as follows:
- To save recruiters’ time and laborious work to hire the right personality of job candidates which fits in role without assessing it via inaccurate and time-consuming personality assessments.
- Recruiters able to hire true skills and qualifications regardless years of experience.
- Recruiters avoid human bias.
- Recruiters won’t lose sight of right job candidates or slide out of them to competitors.
- Recruiters will no need or less need to watch multiple videos to shortlist right candidates.
- Job candidates will no need to build ridiculous resume anymore, but can start focusing on building skills, solely.
- Job candidates will have satisfied working environment by being hired to the job that he or she really committed and be rewarded fairly.
Approaching the future, recruiters that are still relying on the conventional system to find, evaluate and hire employees, are predicted to continuously face tougher and inaccurate hiring process.
We believe that intelligence is needed to solve these problems; job distribution, sourcing, candidate engagement, scheduling, and selection, faster.
After this, recruiters shall focus on recruiting real skills and qualifications that job candidates really possess.
