Recruitment for HR Specialist

HR specialists interview people, hire them and help them do their best work. However, regardless of their area of expertise in human resources, there are a few fundamental qualities that any prospective hire should possess.

The test is created by a subject-matter expert

Testlify’s skill tests are designed by experienced SMEs (subject matter experts). We evaluate these experts based on specific metrics such as expertise, capability, and their market reputation. Prior to being published, each skill test is peer-reviewed by other experts and then calibrated based on insights derived from a significant number of test-takers who are well-versed in that skill area. Our inherent feedback systems and built-in algorithms enable our SMEs to refine our tests continually.
