Is your technical selection team rejecting too many candidates for C# developer position??? Last week, you scheduled interviews of few candidates for C# developer position. But alas, technical team rejected all of the candidates saying they do not have application knowledge of MVC!!
Dear SaaS Startups, I am Amit - running a SaaS venture iMocha, a pre-employment skill testing company. In this blog, I am sharing my learning from SaaSx and how it helped me achieve product-market fit and grow my company fast.
The United States is a diverse state made up of dynamic people and known as “land of the free and the home of the brave.”
Following are the guidelines through which a candidate can appear for the test on iMocha platform: 1) The Candidate receives a mail which provides him the access key, a link, and all the instructions to attempt the test.
Choosing between the human interviews or written tests has long been a subject of debate amongst the HR Professionals. In my opinion, both are interrelated and interdependent. It is quite difficult to give preference to one system while putting other on the back because I myself have found both the options suitable in judging men and women of abilities depending on the situation. This piece is an endeavor to give readers an insight on both the methods and readers will decide which one they want to opt. It depends largely upon the Nature of the Job - The decision of whether to take tests or conduct interviews depends solely upon the nature of the job. In case a company tends to hire a grocery clerk, the test may be a feasible option as it is most relevant to the requirements of the job. On the other hand, for some strategic level job i.e. hiring some International Relation officer, companies conduct interviews, as tests are not the right option to test the skill level of such candidates.
iMocha started its journey a few years back and got huge momentum worldwide with hundreds of global clientele. Customers love iMocha and refer to it as a complete pre-employment online assessment software. Let's see what makes iMocha the complete online testing solution.
I (Amit, CEO, iMocha) have just spent last 19 weeks at GenNext - a startup accelerator by Reliance and powered by Microsoft ventures.

I thought of sharing a few important highlights of this programme that can really help a tech startup to achieve next level.
