Tools for evaluating the perfect candidate

Tools for evaluating the “perfect” candidate

The job interview is one of the basic tools when hiring new employees, but we can always find surprises… We have all hired a brand new professional that we have had to do without, because it has not finished fitting… And that very expensive!

The reasons why a person does not work well within a position can be many: their values do not align with those of the company, does not fit with the team, does not have the required skills, etc. On the Internet there are thousands and thousands of tools to evaluate candidates who promise to have the magic formula to avoid these unforeseen events, but which one to choose?

At TalentFY we are aware that doing this search, reading user reviews and testing some of the options takes a lot of work. To help you save time, here is a list of useful tools and their strengths.


One of the best-known tools is Prevue, an easy-to-use candidate evaluation software with different tests to measure the attitude, personality and motivations and interests of applicants.

  • It allows companies to create the perfect profile to fill their vacancies, that is, the ideal employee for each position, and then with this tool you can compare that ideal with the results of each candidate.
  • Suggest questions to prepare interviews for candidates who pass the tests.
  • It offers reliable and useful results about the potential of each candidate and their possible fit in the company.

After the test, this software sends a report on the results that can be organized according to the client’s request. He or she may choose, for example, a short one-page summary with suggestions for interview questions or an in-depth analysis.

  • It’s easy to use.
  • Useful tool when deciding employee promotions.
  • Useful for identifying stress levels and how they affect decision-making ability.

Saberr Base performs a 15-minute test on the company’s employees to detect values, motivations, positive influences and situations more likely to create friction among the team members. It then analyzes the candidate and issues a report on cultural fit.

  • Read user reviews, it is the best way to make sure it has been useful for other professionals with your same need.
  • Reflect on the type of position for which you need the test and identify precisely the aspects you need to assess.
  • Make sure that the chosen tool will be comfortable and attractive for candidates.
