The hiring process can be riddled with challenges every step of the way. Even when you are finally ready to select a candidate, there is a huge leap of faith involved in choosing someone who is virtually unknown to you.

This disinterest and tediousness can result in a lot of silly mistakes, that can prove costly in the long-term. Therefore, leave the work of screening to online apps and tools. You can even develop your own customized tool to do the screening for you. These tools filter out unqualified candidates and let only the desired candidates come through.
