candidates screening

01. Pre-screening

A recruiter gleans information about a candidate who seems a good fit from publicly available sources: CV, LinkedIn, social media profiles, activity on GitHub, and some others. The goal is to see a picture that is bigger than a CV draws. A recruiter checks the references as well to get the complex impression of the candidate’s achievements, peculiarities, and possible weaknesses.


02. HR Interview

An IT recruiter tests a candidate’s soft skills, then finds out about the developer’s motivation and expectations toward a position. During a conversation, a recruiter elaborates on a developer’s experience: challenges, breakthroughs, and career turning points. A recruiter is especially focused on the relationship issue: if a candidate is flexible enough to adjust to an employer’s company culture.

03. English Assessment Test

A recruiter finds out about a candidate’s English level during an HR interview. However, for reliable estimation, a more detailed check is available. Online testing like Linguaskill © from Cambridge University allows assessing the whole range of language skills: speaking, writing, and comprehension. What tests a recruitment team uses for a particular candidate depends on the role and required English background.


04. Written Code Test

Nothing tells more about a developer’s skill set than a real coding session. A candidate gets a task closely related to the tech stack required for the position. At STARNAVI, we use online tests like CoderPad or DevSkiller, our own tests, or we can also use a test task offered by a clients’ team.

05. Tech Interview with Senior Developers

It’s the most challenging step for an interviewee and the most informative for a recruitment team. At STARNAVI, we do our best to provide as much engagement for a candidate as possible so that a software engineer could showcase all the talents and merits. The interview is managed by senior developers in particular technologies which are crucial for the project or a company.

How to Check if the Vetting Process Is Trustworthy?

In IT recruitment, the key procedure is vetting. Vetting is a cross-checking process focused on candidates’ hard and soft skills. The goal of vetting is to find a 100% relevant candidate. A reliable IT staffing partner uses a multi-stage selection process based on principles and tools which eliminate biases and help unwrap candidates’ strengths and weaknesses.

Vetting is productive when it is:

  • thorough – experts assess hard and soft skills to get a complete picture of the candidate’s capabilities;

  • concise – in an interview, an IT recruiter evaluates a candidate’s potential in general; the tech interview takes place only if a developer matches the company’s culture and could be easily integrated into a team;

  • goal-oriented – the aim is to weed out candidates who don’t fit and pinpoint those who meet expectations completely.

You can get an impression of the potential staffing partner during the very first call. Is a manager asking specific questions about your project and trying to define your need? Is a recruiter trying to state the search goal? Is vetting in a company multidimensional? If yes, these are good signs.
