How long until I can start interviewing applicants?

You can sign up and post your first ad in 5 minutes. Applicants will start applying immediately and you can contact applicants for interviews as soon as they apply.

Where does Optimize Hire get its applicants?

Optimize Hire does not have a pool of applicants for given jobs. Instead, we help you evaluate the applicants who apply using scientific pre-employment tests that are tailored to your industry and the given job.

How are you different from a headhunter?

Headhunters and recruiters use the traditional hiring process: posting ads, reviewing resumes and conducting interviews. Optimize Hire uses scientific evidence to evaluate applicants’ cognitive ability, motivation, personality, and other traits linked to high performance. Scientific testing substantially increases the probability of hiring star performers, and research shows that it is significantly better than simply screening resumes and interviewing alone.
