Article Summary

Talenteria's AI-driven Candidate Scoring is designed to streamline your candidate evaluation process by objectively assessing qualifications, experience, education, and skills. This powerful tool provides a consistent and data-driven approach to identifying top candidates for your job openings. In this guide, we'll delve into the mechanics of AI Candidate Scoring, when it's performed, and where you can access the scoring results.

Understanding the Scoring Mechanism and Formula

Talenteria's AI Candidate Scoring employs a scoring mechanism that assigns a score between 0 and 10 to each candidate based on their experience, education, and skills. Here's how it works:

  • Experience Score (0 - 10): The candidate's years of relevant experience contribute to the score. Candidate Working History records are matched with the Job position title, description and requirements. More years of relevant experience generally lead to a higher score.
  • Education(0 - 10): The level of education attained by the candidate is factored into the score and compared with the Education Level requirement field specified on a Job. 
  • Skills(0 - 10): The specific candidate skills, which are parsed from a resume or filled in on an application form, are compared with the job requirements specified in the Skills Required field on a Job.

Total Score = (Experience Score + Education Score + Skills Score) / 3

When AI Candidate Scoring is Performed

Talenteria's AI Candidate Scoring is executed at two key points in the recruitment process:

  • When a New Candidate Applies: As soon as a candidate applies for a job through your career site, Talenteria's AI assesses their profile, experience, education, and skills to generate an initial score.
  • When Linking a Candidate to a Job: When you manually link a candidate to a specific job opening within Talenteria's platform, the AI recalculates the candidate's score based on how well their qualifications align with that particular job's requirements.

Accessing Scoring Results

The AI Candidate Scoring results are conveniently accessible within the Talenteria platform:

  • Candidate List: On the main candidate list, you'll see an additional column displaying each candidate's AI-generated score. This at-a-glance view helps you quickly gauge the relative suitability of candidates.
  • Candidate Card: When you access an individual candidate's profile, the AI-generated score is prominently displayed. This assists you in making more informed decisions when considering a candidate for a role.
