Beyond The Grade

November, 2018

All recruiters know that the grade point average (GPA) on an applicant’s résumé really doesn’t say much given the varying grading standards, degrees of subject difficulty and competitiveness at different institutions and in different years.

To give HR staff a rounder picture of the top talent, the Cologne-based startup Candidate Select (CASE) has developed an algorithm and extensive database. Besides rating academic achievement, the analysis also looks at the psychological and personality traits that can predict on-the-job performance.

The service will soon be available in six European countries.
