Adding a Talent Trial is easy!
You can either choose a Talent Trial written by an expert from our Talent Trial Library or create your own.
Talent Trial Library
Our Talent Trial library is a collection of trials created by people considered experts in their fields. Our experts have at least 3+ years of experience in their specific roles or fields of expertise. Our Talent Trial team makes sure to check and evaluate the trials to make ensure they are appropriate.
You can browse and pick a Talent Trial through the library tab or when adding a stage to your job.
Once you are in the library, you can search for Talent Trials using keywords in the search bar.
You can preview questions from any of the Talent Trials to help you decide whether you would like to include it in one of your automated stages.
Once you decide which you would like to use, click "Add".
**Note**: You can also customize one of the Talent Trials in our library. Click on the Talent Trial and click Customize> Make a Copy.
This will create an exact copy of the Talent Trial to your own collection. Your private collection can be found in the My Talent Trials tab next to the search bar.
Click on the 3 dot menu of the copy and click "Edit"
You will be able to edit the Script name, summary and message to candidates. You can also add, remove or modify the questions whichever way you like.
**You can also disable the final question of the script under Talent Trial Settings.**
Creating Your Own Talent Trials
For some great tips on how to write a quick and effective Talent Trial, read this short article we wrote for our blog.
To create your own Talent Trial, click the button "+ Create Talent Trial", next to the keyword search bar.
A dialog box will open where you will need to enter a title, summary and a message to the candidates.
Click Add and you can start adding questions.
For the first question, select the question type from the available formats,
insert the question in the selected format, select the answer type , enter a suggested answer or add a timer. Click Save Question and click Add question to continue adding.
**Suggested Answer is not required unless you intend to publish your Talent Trial to our library. Adding a suggested answer will help other employers score their candidates.**
You can also add a timer to a question. Just don't go crazy timing all your questions. Doing an online trial will be intimidating enough and having a ticking clock can just add more anxiety.
This feature integrates with Good docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides and a code editor. This means that there is no need to have a candidate download a file and then upload a file as their response.
All the work can be done right in our platform. When you choose one of these question types, you will have the option to create the document right through our app or upload a file from your computer.
The following are the question types you can choose from:
*If you choose one of the Google types then there is no need to choose an answer type. The candidate will be able to provide an answer right in the document.
If you choose a code editor question and would like for them to create code, then you can choose Code Editor in the answer type option.
The following are the answer types you can choose from:
