In the last blog we have discussed the first stage of recruitment which was the candidate sourcing stage. In this blog we will be discussing the next stage which is the candidate screening stage and the improvements provided by the TurboHire platform.

Candidate Screening
When the required threshold number of resumes is obtained the next step is to screen the candidates. This is the most important step in the recruitment process where the recruiter selects those candidates whom he/she feels deemed to be fit and rejects all the others. However, the point to consider here is the number of resumes to go through for the screening process and the fatigue on the recruiter.

Current scenario
The usual process is that the recruiter will collect all the CV into his database and opens each resume and reads through it to understand the candidate. On average, it takes 6 mins to go through a resume and to understand a candidate. So, if the recruiter must scan all these 500 Resumes it will take more time before he could comprehend whether he is fit or unfit. In addition to this, we need to consider the human element such as human error and fatigue due to reading these many resumes.
