As illustrated in a recent Wall Street Journal article, job seekers have discovered that it is not so easy to game some of today's personality questionnaires and assessments by guessing answers that help them make it to the next level in the hiring process. However, many companies struggle with how to avoid the pitfalls of standardized tests while still gaining the insight necessary to find and hire the best-fit candidates quickly and objectively.

During the Fall ERE Recruiting Conference, the experts from SHAKER will demonstrate how its Virtual Job Tryout technology can help organizations more effectively evaluate candidate job-fit and improve quality of hire from their talent acquisition process. Virtual Job Tryout technology is a new category of pre-employment assessment that combines the best elements of gamification, simulation and validation. This new approach to talent acquisition gives companies the tools they need to engage, educate and evaluate candidates more accurately. A bronze sponsor of the event, SHAKER also will showcase the capabilities of its newest offering, a suite of Virtual Job Tryouts for various front line customer service roles in retail banking.

Talent acquisition, recruiting, and HR professionals attending the Fall ERE Recruiting Conference who are interested in learning more about improving quality of hire through objective, evidence-based assessment technology are encouraged to visit SHAKER at Booth No. 403.
