Vervoe, an Australian-based startup, is aiming to fix the job hiring process by leveraging its newly developed skill-testing AI. Unlike traditional hiring practices, which revolve around résumé screening, this new skill-testing AI evaluates applicants' on-the-job skills and recommends scores to hiring managers. This new AI process is being marketed as more objective as it doesn't take background or education into the equation and instead focuses primarily on the skills and abilities of the candidate.
The assessments used by the skill-testing AI come in a range of different tests and can include coding challenges, and personality quizzes. All of these options can be swapped and customized by employers to cater and fit specific needs. Applicants that pass this initial round of tests will then be passed onto in-person or remote interviewers.
