Conventional technical interviews can be difficult and time-consuming for both candidates and recruiters. These evaluations, which might range from answering challenging programming questions to solving theoretical problems on a whiteboard, frequently fall short of giving a true picture of a candidate’s technical proficiency.

But what if there was a way to conduct technical interviews that gave candidates immediate feedback and more accurately reflected real-world scenarios?

Collaboration with coding comes into play here.

With the use of code collaboration, recruiters can instantly analyze a candidate’s technical proficiency, giving them immediate feedback and quickening the hiring process. Our Code Collaboration option at InterviewDesk accelerates the hiring procedure and offers a quick and accurate approach to assessing technical candidates.

Code Collaboration: What is it?

To give recruiters a more realistic picture of an applicant’s technical skills, Code Collaboration is a live assessment process that simulates real-world circumstances. Code Collaboration evaluates applicants’ talents by having them work on a live coding task that simulates the work they’d do in the targeted position, as opposed to typical technical interviews that focus on theoretical problem solving.

Using InterviewDesk’s code collaboration feature, recruiters can organize live coding tests and communicate with candidates in real time. Assessment settings, such as the type of coding challenge, time limit, and programming language, can be specified by recruiters. Then, candidates can collaborate to complete the assessment while receiving instant comments and guidance from recruiters.
