kind of writing assignment for that matter.
I'm wondering what kind of exercise you would have in mind ? A quizz ? A basic math problem ?
The exercise has to be easy to check for the recruiter.
Could you please give me a concrete example ?…
oping a quick exercise for applicants to complete in addition to submitting a resume. Something simple, but relevant to the position and representative of what that person might actually do on the job.
In the past, I've found those exercises to be valuable in a couple of ways. They cut down on the amount of resume spam. Candidates not really interested in the job won't complete the exercise. It also gives you a much better way to compare work product and communication skills within tangible work product.
If a candidates exercises don't look good, then there is no point in reviewing the resume.
