nTalents.ai, the Bengaluru-based AI-powered hiring platform, has brought automated interviews to the table for the corporate sales industry with the advent of their new and efficient software.
Incubated at IIM Bangalore, the startup uses AI and other deep learning capabilities to make hiring easy for their numerous corporate clients.
Founded by Deepika Anu, Mayank Sharma and Varun Narula who were previously working as a data scientist and were also involved in the hiring process, the trio gained first-hand knowledge about the hardships that corporates face while hiring. “Three of us have spent more than 10 years in the industry, all of us back then were involved in interviewing new recruits for our teams. The process became very repetitive and inaccurate in the long run. We brainstormed on how we can build something that can be much more accurate and comprehensive,” says Deepika Anu, Marketing Head of nTalents.ai
It was during their attempt to crack standardised exams like TOEFL and IELTS when the idea of automated tools for the interview process came into being. Having used these exam’s comprehensive audio-interactive test to quantify English Communication, the trio decided to replicate the model for identifying few skill sets in technical professions before the actual personal interviews, thus helping the recruiters to identify the right set of talent.
“An estimated 80% of the interview time (read ‘time of senior panelists’) is being spent on ineligible profiles and it takes another level of expertise to find few good candidates among all that noise. Through nTalent’s audio-visual simulated test of the candidate, the platform generates a detailed skill set report even before the candidate has even had the first interaction,” Anu explains.
