Hiring Method used
The recruitment process for each role is slightly different. For most technical roles, the shortlisting is done by the recruiters in collaboration with the hiring managers. Post that they have a screening round and a few technical rounds. The offers are then rolled out after careful deliberation.
Here are the challenges Egnyte’s hiring team faced before they started using Cutshort:
Quality of talent:It was difficult to find quality talent who could clear their interview rounds. The number of candidates being dropped off at each round was very high. This made the recruitment process super lengthy.
Lack of active job seekers’ pool:Many profiles they found on platforms like Naukri and LinkedIn were not active job seekers, increasing their effort in finding relevant folks.
