Introducing tech screening as it should be.

Screen on skills. Share the sourcing.

6 truths about tech recruiting

  1. Tech talents have more skills than what they’re asked to do at work, or taught at school.
  2. Asking them to self-sell through a self-written one pager is bullshit.
  3. Comparing them on that bullshit is therefore wrong, but also very difficult.
  4. And making them fill out an online form explicitly for your job listing, is a waste of their time.
  5. Most tech people have a job, hate being approached on LinkedIn and rarely bother to apply anywhere, so sourcing is nearly impossible.
  6. But they ARE open for cooler projects, better pay, more flexible hours and nicer coworkers if these great awards come with minimum effort.

So that’s why we created WA.works.

We want candidates to be able to show off their skills without being limited by formal experience or lack of communication skills. We want them to create great skill profiles that can be used towards multiple companies and we want you to be able to compare those profile on what’s important to you; education, experience and tech skills. And when all companies are facing the same issues sourcing candidates, why don’t we help each other out by sharing them in a joint database? This is WA.works and we’d love to help you with tech recruiting.

The WA and the skill assessment

Every WA is based on the candidate’s skill assessment(SA) and LinkedIn profile. By making all your applicants go through a process that takes a deep look into tech skills and background, you’re able to uncover more relevant information than you would from a self-written CV.

The data is listed and visualized on the WA profile so you get a fuller picture of their competence -without having to talk to every single candidate with a bachelor’s degree. WA example

Screening WAs

Customers create job listings, use their own channels to promote it, and then send their applicants to WA.works to create WAs.

When creating the listing, the customer add soft and hard demands for Skills, Education, and Experience.

Their applicants are then instantly ranked by these demands so you always know who to invite to the interview round.

Sourcing existing WAs

Existing users can poke and apply to all our customers on their own,  or get poked by customers. The existing users come from our marketing efforts in social media and other clients’ job listings.

To poke a candidate you create a search. A search is similar to a listing but is never published anywhere. Because in the same way you can rank your own applicants, you can rank all users. It’s an anonymous user list, but you can poke interesting skill profiles to ask for access to their full WA.
