How does GeekyPrep help HRs and recruiters?
Recruiters face the problem of fake candidate profiles and fake skills on resumes on a regular basis. The candidates will be screened by the tests on GeekyPrep across various skills and programming languages. Hence they will be gauged on actual skills rather than what is written on the resume. We will then forward the contacts of the good performing profiles to recruiters and HRs depending on their required skill set.
How does GeekyPrep calculates the leaderboard rankings?
Ranks are determined on the basis of GeekyPoints which is calculated by multiplying score with accuracy of a particular subject or topic, hence normalizing the score of the user. So a higher score person can be ranked lower than a lower score, if his/her accuracy is very less. Top 1000 ranks of each subject/topic are shown.
How to apply for jobs/referrals and post a job/referral?
You can go to the jobs tab and select a company and position from the available openings and click on apply. If your resume is already in system, it will be applied else you will be asked to upload your resume in your profile page. You can also post jobs/referrals by clicking on "Post jobs/referrals" button and filling out the details.
Are the job poster details kept private on GeekyPrep?
Yes, it is perfectly safe to post referral jobs on GeekyPrep if you have privacy concerns, since the recruiter email is not shown to the users, so there is completely privacy maintained. The poster of the job will get the resume of the applicant in his email, when the candidate applies.
