This style appears to relax candidates in a timelier manner than that of traditional techniques.” “Overall very impressed with the ability to assess candidates fairly and really focus on their strengths.” “I liked it a lot. It was visibly tougher on the candidates and it made it more difficult for them to serve up past answers. The consequence was that the interviews were more enjoyable for the interviewer. I’m actually looking forward to the next one!” “Quick-fire questions meant candidates have to think on their feet, which really shows the strong candidates and how their thinking processes work.”
