hiring blueprints

Modern Hire’s Hiring Blueprints are your starting point for creating an efficient and seamless end-to-end hiring process. Powered by CognitIOn by Modern Hire™, Hiring Blueprints are recommended, ready-to-go hiring templates built around scientifically validated, job-specific assessment and interview content to engage and screen, assess and interview, and evaluate and hire your top talent faster.

Available by job or by hiring issue, Hiring Blueprints are hiring plans representing each step of the hiring process. Each one is built around a Virtual Job Tryout™ assessment featuring job-specific competency measures our decades of research across various roles and industries have identified as predictive of new hire success.

Fast-Track Hiring for Critical Roles


Each Hiring Blueprint recommends hiring workflows based on nearly two decades of research and practice, more than 400 client validation studies, and data from billions of candidate interactions.

Hiring Blueprints also track and measure key metrics to demonstrate and continuously improve hiring success by identifying best-fit candidates with more precision, increasing new-hire retention, and improving quality of hire.

Get started with Hiring Blueprints by choosing from among more than 40 specific roles.

Highly Configurable to Meet Your Needs

Modern Hire’s Hiring Blueprints are recommended hiring plan templates, but each Blueprint is highly configurable so you can tailor the workflow to meet any of the unique needs of your role.

You can add or remove stages as needed, customize assessment content, add and edit questions and evaluation criteria, personalize job previews and candidate communication, and more.
