The Roadblocks

HSC is using HackerEarth platform for the hiring of Fresh Engineering Graduates. Before using HackerEarth Assessments, HSC manually screened the test papers to identify top candidates. The volume of candidates was high, and the team spent too much time evaluating and assessing candidates. They had to rely on multiple people, especially from the engineering teams, to participate in the screening process. 

The team wanted an efficient way to: 

  • Identify high-quality candidates
  • Increase the scale of hiring 
  • Reduce the number of stakeholders involved in the screening process

HSC + HackerEarth

HSC uses HackerEarth Assessments to screen and hire candidates from different universities. The organization has conducted various tests simultaneously on the platform across different universities. 

The technical recruitment process at HSC is as follows: 

  • Screen resumes to shortlist candidates
  • Send a HackerEarth test to shortlisted candidates 
  • Conduct face-to-face interviews (technical and HR) with candidates who are selected

The tests consist of programming and aptitude questions to evaluate candidates on their basic programming and logical reasoning skills. 

“The questions available on the HackerEarth platform have helped us shortlist the candidates with Good Aptitude and Technical Knowledge.”

Reduce resource utilization by 50%

Earlier, the team at HSC had to rely on a number of people in their engineering team for screening candidates across different universities. This significantly increased the time and resources spent during the screening process.

After using HackerEarth, we’ve managed to reduce the resource utilization significantly, cutting down our engineering resources by 50% in our screening process.
