Contributing questions helps you in many ways. Some of the benefits highlights include Awards and cash prizes (Please refer the awards page for details), becoming a champion and getting noticed by the hiring managers

Who are the champions

How do I become a champion

Simple. Start contributing towards the challenges and our panel will select the question based on industry standard, originality, substance it provides towards assessing another talent for a role etc.. The weightage is given to substance, quality and activity rather than the amount of questions.

I have been screened for a position and got rejected. Does it impact my chances with other companies

Screening

No. We do not share a candidates assessment results for a specific role to another hiring manager. Studies have shown that there are various parameters that are accounted in a hiring process and the role need might be completely different for a different job requirement. Personality also plays a major factor into the decision making process. We expect every hiring manager to form their own decisions based on the criteria set for the job. In most cases, the challenges will not repeat as no two jobs are same. We also mandate the hiring managers to provide an appropriate feedback to ensure that the talent is able to improve upon their deficiencies.

However we expect the talent to act in a professional manner. Any misdemenours will end up in banning the candidate from taking any future assessments through out platform.

How are the time limits set for an assessment

The hiring manager is the deciding authority in this regard. But we work with the recruiters/hiring managers to ensure that it pertains to the role. We believe every role should focus on Quality, What’s necessary for the role and optimal time rather than just speed. This is not a race.

Plagiarism

We do plagiarism detection. The challenges would also be tuned in such fashion that plagiarism is not possible. Any misdemenours will end up in banning the candidate from taking any future assessments through out platform

Online References

We do understand that in today’s world, people utilize online references for analyzing and providing best possible solution. If you do use it, we encourage you to provide the references as well in the comments section. This shows honesty and your breadth of presence in contributing to the online community
