EY Uses Online Testing to Screen Applicants

Testing for skills and aptitude before hiring is nothing new, but doing it over the Internet has become one of the new trends because of the immense savings in time.

Ernst & Young has contracted with Virginia-based Brainbench to use the company's skills assessment tests to screen applicants for 500 IT professionals who will work on EY's Sprint contract.

According to EY, using online testing sources like Brainbench reduces the hiring time from weeks to a matter of hours. Test results are viewed via networks versus snail mail of yesteryear.

Another advantage is the use of Brainbench as a portal, in which job applicants seek positions. In the very tight IT marketplace, this has enabled companies the world to find talent on a faster basis.
