Historically, the best chance a candidate got to showcase their skillset was their resume. However, as the hiring landscape has grown more competitive, employers are relying increasingly on advanced tools and technologies to evaluate job seekers and improve the decision-making process. In fact, a large number of today's candidates welcome the opportunity to break free from the resume and demonstrate their skills for potential employers.

During this webinar hosted by the Oracle HCM Users Group (OHUG), Joseph P. Murphy, executive vice president at SHAKER, will show how by incorporating simulations and job-relevant exercises, organizations can engage, educate and evaluate candidates more effectively. In addition, Murphy will discuss the use of predictive modeling in order to create a calibrated and validated candidate evaluation process that allows employers to objectively rank candidates based on capabilities. Webinar attendees will hear survey results from the Candidate Experience Awards, review different types of work-sample simulation exercises and take away an understanding of how two critical data gathering steps support this approach.

HR professionals and business leaders interested in learning how the predictive modeling as the intersection of recruiting and technology leads to precise hiring decisions are encouraged to attend this webinar. To register, please visit:
