Make sure that candidates move well through the funnel and there are no problems at any stage — for example, you may lose tech talents during the selection process because of the long wait for feedback and lengthy approval of the next stages. Even those highly motivated candidates who are interested in your job opening are easy to miss if you do not act clearly and promptly. It may also be more difficult to find IT talent for positions which require a test assignment — in the IT market, candidates often do not treat TK very positively. How can you solve this issue? Think about whether it is important for your vacancy to have a test assignment in general — if not, feel free to optimize the selection stages. This will significantly speed up hiring and make it possible to lead candidates through the funnel more quickly. If the position necessarily requires the completion of a test task, think about the optimal format.
For example, if your company needs to find a developer — consider life coding as an alternative to test assignment. You will be able to test the skills of a potential candidate, without going beyond the time frame of the interview and making a specialist spend their personal time on completing a task.
