Screening

All job seekers must submit their resume to begin the screening and evaluation process. If selected, potential candidates are contacted and asked to schedule a screening.

During each screening, multiple aspects of a candidate's background will be addressed and examined. Key information such as education, skills, experience, software knowledge and employment history will be discussed and other topics such as career goals, job preferences, likes and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses, wants vs. needs and desired salary vs. least considered salary are all reviewed.

Skills Assessment, Testing and Training

Skill testing is selected and administered on a candidate-by-candidate basis, as appropriate, under the direction of the JobGiraffe staff.

By utilizing over 1500 testing and evaluation products offered through the Prove It! system, base abilities such as math, spelling, grammar and proofreading can be evaluated online plus job-specific skills such as accounting, bookkeeping, customer service, legal terminology, medical terminology and other job-related skills can also be accurately assessed.

A candidate's typing and data entry speed, computer skills and specific software knowledge can also be accurately assessed at a basic, intermediate or advanced level on more than 500 specific software titles.  And, in some cases, software skills can be enhanced by the training portion of the module.

For Spanish, JobGiraffe uniquely offers a special in-depth screening program that includes an interactive reading and writing evaluation and a live conversation in both English and Latin American Spanish with a member of the JobGiraffe staff, who is a native Spanish speaker.

All testing by JobGiraffe is free to the client when performed along with a for-fee search.
