What is a SkillChallenge?
SkillChallenge is a pre-assessment test, linked to your job vacancy notice. It helps to filter and
judge candidates based on their actual skills and performance. SkillChallenges focus on technologies
needed for the specific job role you have advertised.
What groups of specialists are you able to source for me?
Our community consists of over 100,000 IT specialists, including developers, data and business analysts,
QA specialists, finance experts, project managers, and the list goes on and on. They are focused around
ChallengeRocket.com when we engage them with different SkillChallenges for our clients. The most active
groups are juniors and mids, although with the right outreach and marketing campaigns, we are able to source
seniors as well.
How do you differ from job boards, and other recruitment platforms and job agencies?
We believe that CVs and resumes should not be the main criteria recruiters and HR managers evaluate. We are convinced
that actions speak louder than words so we give candidates the opportunity to showcase their skills through truly
practical SkillChallenges attached to the actual job post. Last but not least, hiring companies are able to source,
pre-assess and hire people all in one place, completely online and with tremendous time and budget savings. Let the
automated system do the sourcing and screening work for you!
How fast will I see the first candidates applying for my job offer?
In our experience, the first candidates appear within a few hours after posting the job offer. We alert you straightaway
once the very first ones apply so that you can immediately decide who you want to contact and proceed with in your recruitment
How does your pre-assessment work and what is in it for me?
We engage candidates in SkillChallenges attached to your job offers, exclusively created to assess and engage them in the
process. They participate and score some results, filling their profiles up with data. Then we let the AI do its job and
automatically match the selected candidates with your job offers. That means less sourcing and pre-screening work for you and
it makes sure you talk to the right candidate with the actual skill set you are looking for.
What is a benchmark and how to use it?
A benchmark is the level (the percentage of the result obtained in the test) in the SkillChallenge that a participant must meet
to become a viable candidate. By default, the level is set to 50%.
How can I engage candidates with my company, even those who aren't hired immediately?
Great question! We believe that building and engaging your own talent pool enables you to have a base of highly-aware and
motivated people, who you can reach out to whenever specific recruitment needs come up. Talent pool is a database of all the
users gathered around your company profile. These are all the people who participated in the events, projects, challenges,
and tests created by your company in our system. By retaining a talent pool all year long and engaging people with SkillChallenges,
educational content and employer branding initiatives, you are in pole position to grab the right people at the right time, and make
it quick and super-efficient.
I have a team of sourcers and recruiters in my company. How does this tool help them?
ChallengeRocket can be a weapon of choice in your team's hands. We will help them shorten the time needed to source and
pre-screen candidates. No more long initial conversations that go nowhere, no scrolling through a pile of CVs that can be either
exaggerated or unsuitable, and no need to manually answer all the candidates in order to keep the experience top notch. We can
do all that for you.
Can I just try out your platform for now?
Sure. We are very happy to enable you to test the waters with us via a 30-day free trial. You can post 1 job offer related to a
intern role to see how many valuable candidates we can source for you. Additionally, to make the outreach to candidates even better,
we throw in a marketing campaign worth $100 dollars as a sweetener.
