Who said starting a small business was easy? Things are never easy for small business owners. There are many problems that are encountered by these owners throughout the course of managing a business. These include things like hiring the right people, building a brand and so on. For a business with relatively few employees, adding an HR person or team can seem difficult and sometimes unnecessary. Most of the time, the CEO or the owner is himself the hiring manager. Unlike large business which are stuck with policies, procedures and traditional solutions, small businesses are free to look less at these traditional procedures and build new methods.

Job Description (JD) is an essential step towards attracting the right candidates or I should say, the top candidates. Does your job description stand out to attract top talent? Writing a great job description is a first step towards attracting top talent to join your company. A good job description not only attracts candidates but the right candidates.

Interview Mocha now launches ‘Mark for Review’ feature by popular demand from many of our existing and prospective customers. This allows the test taker to mark any question he would like to revisit. While attempting the test if the candidate is not sure about the answer then he or she can mark the particular question for 'Mark for Review' and can move further. During the session, he can any time revisit the marked question and change or verify the original answer. In the earlier version, this facility was not available and it closely resembled an interview scenario in which a job seeker has to answer a question as and when it was put to him by the interviewer.

When hiring the best person available for a position, rather than the best person who applies to a job posting, requires a different type of recruiter and a different type of recruiting process. In 1990 when Stephen Covey’s book, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, was published it seemed like a good framework for bridging this gap. Here’s my take on how to be a great recruiter using the Seven Habits as a frame of reference:

What is a Staffing Agency? Staffing agencies are used by organizations to recruit candidates for a wide variety of employment needs. Whenever any vacancy arises, companies send job descriptions to the staffing agencies. The staffing agency needs to find a candidate whose skills match those mentioned in the job description. Once this matching is done the staffing agency needs to thoroughly screen the candidate. Once found suitable the candidate is hired by the staffing agency, not the employer. The salary will be issued by the staffing agency, but the length of employment will be determined by the employer. The jobs offered by the staffing agencies are either temporary positions or permanent positions. In case it is a permanent position the staffing agency works like a recruiter and the employees are then hired by the employer directly.

Interview Mocha and ClassMarker provide online assessments, the use cases are different. ClassMarker only provides a testing platform, you have to create questions on your own. The use cases are less and it is used only by a small cluster of recruiters. So, don't go by the big brands you see listed on their website as only 1 or 2 recruiters of a company may be using ClassMarker without any cheating prevention. Unlike ClassMarker, Interview Mocha is an online pre-employment assessment software with over 1000+ ready to use skill tests and simulators with the option to use your own questions, or you can ask for a custom test as well.
