Campus recruitment is one of the primary recruitment channels for a company. An efficient campus hiring process helps an organization to tap a passive and energetic pool of young, skilled, and fresh graduates. These freshers are selected on the basis of their skill proficiency. It is important to check the basic skill proficiency of the candidate to understand if the candidate is a fit for the company or not.

However, the candidate is not expected to have an expert level proficiency in all the skills the company is looking for. It is okay if in some skills the candidate is at an intermediate level. The company would still go ahead and recruit the candidate.

But, how do you tell for which IT roles what skills are expected to be at a proficiency level and what at an intermediate level? Therefore, our team at iMocha determined different levels of skill proficiency required for different IT job roles. Different skill levels can be categorized as follows:

  • Beginner (Beg)
  • Intermediate (Inter)
  • Experienced (Exp)
  • Proficient (Pro)
  • Not Applicable (NA)

Note-These Statistics are based on the sampling of 100,000 candidates across 100+ customers.

Why Skill Proficiency Matter?

Proficiency is a much-discussed and frequently used word in campus recruitment. The proficiency level indicates how well versed a candidate is in a particular skill.

For example- A candidate applying for software developer needs to be a pro at logical reasoning, however, she/he can be an intermediate in the next-gen skills!

Skills represent an aspect of an ability score and the focus on that aspect is determined on the basis of the individual’s proficiency in that particular skill. Companies need to know that the candidates they are hiring through university recruitment are groomed well, therefore they take a basic test to check the knowledge of the candidate.
