During the expo for the Recruiting Trends and Talent Acquisition Tech conferences, representatives from Shaker will demonstrate its Virtual Job Tryout technology designed to save recruiters time, decrease turnover and improve quality of hire while enhancing the candidate experience. Shaker's recruiting technology uses simulation design that allows job candidates to test-drive a job similar to the one for which they are applying, giving candidates a realistic preview of the role, the company and its culture. This technology gathers objective and standardized data about candidates' capabilities through a multimethod evaluation experience. The end result is improved quality of hire from an advanced approach to the talent acquisition process. Employers are better equipped to identify individuals who are apt to be successful at their jobs and engaged with the company for the long term.
