“Before using eSkill, we didn’t have a way of assessing software skills or administrative capabilities. Since acquiring eSkill, we can now quickly assess internal and external candidates. I especially like the dashboard feature, which provides a snapshot to the user. I also like the options for emailing results.”

“Great System that Meets a lot of Needs! eSkill is simple to use and easy to access. In the almost three years we have been using eSkill in our hiring process, we have had improved candidates for interviews. The testing is also super customizable! I have always had great customer service form eSkill and very consistent information all the years we have been working with them!”

Wanda Hatchett

Contact Center Scheduling Coordinator/Recruiter


“We did demos with maybe six other companies, and eSkill kept coming to the top, because of the flexibility, the integration into our Taleo application process, and then being able to use it in other areas of the company. Before, we had so many open loops that we couldn’t close because they were out of our control. Now, after integrating our Taleo system with eSkill, we’re able to move into the process immediately and we have scores in hand. It’s a 100% improvement in the time reduction.”
