But what if there was a way to attract the right talent to the right job? In a one of a kind media knowledge sharing day, Mr. Harishankaran K, Co-founder of HackerRank talks about the HackerRank platform helping a large number of companies hire the right programming talent in an efficient yet cost-effective manner.
Addressing the meet Harishankaran K, Co-founder of HackerRank said “Only 10 years ago, 90% of companies would go to campus with the intention of conducting a pen-and-paper coding test. However, now the trend has reversed and only 10% of companies visiting campuses follow the old method. The rest have adopted technology to optimize the process, with online platforms like HackerRank being used widely, companies now have the liberty to recruit coding gems from remote colleges as well, which a company may have rejected due to logistics constraints”
