How the Virtual Job Tryout Works
Powered by Cognition by Modern HireTM, the Virtual Job Tryout measures job competencies we have proven to be crucial to new-hire success.
Candidates engage in a series of simulated tasks and job-relevant exercises. They learn about the job while you learn about them. You collect job-relevant data to evaluate candidates based on abilities, not words on a resume or other data that can lead to bias.
Research has defined what makes for a great candidate experience, and it includes giving candidates a chance to perform and feel satisfied they had a chance to showcase their job-relevant skills. Our assessment tools ensure candidates leave the experience fans of your brand even if they don’t get the job.
Methodical and Fair
Modern Hire’s PhD-level selection and data scientists are committed to rigorous talent analytics, assessment tool development, the ethical application of AI in hiring, and research to advance the field of talent science.
Our processes are built upon exacting methodology and thorough documentation, ensuring fairness and ethical and legal defensibility.
We stand behind the quality of our science. All Modern Hire’s science and solutions conform to EEOC and SIOP guidelines for validation and deployment of applicant evaluation methods.
Realistic job preview
Engage your candidates in a preview, job simulations, and other exercises that offer a candid look at the benefits and challenges of the job, enabling them to make an informed decision about their fit for the role.
The Virtual Job Tryout's multi-method measurement provides a whole-person view of your candidates and better reflects the complex nature of on-the-job performance than a cognitive or behavioral test.
Custom branding and content
The Virtual Job Tryout offers a range of options for custom branding, messaging, images and video, realistic job preview, other content and predictive modeling to reflect and predict success in your job and company.
Predict Turnover with a Text-Based Assessment
Text-based assessment tools enable hiring teams to scientifically predict turnover with an on-demand text interaction in the screening stage of the hiring process.
The content of this brief assessment measure is specifically designed to predict a candidate’s likelihood to stay on the job and otherwise qualify them for moving ahead in the hiring process.
Career stability text-based assessment is especially helpful for high-volume hourly roles, where determining turnover risk early makes the hiring process more efficient. And making it available as a text exchange makes the interaction quick and convenient for candidates.
“The assessment was very useful, and I found it to be kind of fun! Almost as if this was a professional problem-solving game that I enjoyed doing.”
