Sokanu is a career exploration site with millions of visitors each month. When you create a job, we advertise that job on one our many career pages as well as our jobs page.
What makes Sokanu special is that at our core, we are a career test that measures over 100 facets of every individual. What that means for employers is that job applicants take an assessment that let's us use industry leading psychometric science to predict who will actually be a good fit for your posted role.
The best part? You only pay for candidates who are a good match.
Sokanu gives employers not just a resume but what we call a psychume. The psychume for every job candidate gives you a deep understand of what makes them tick. Curious what a psychume looks like?
Our job matching technology is complicated. Posting a job is not.
We have made it incredibly easy to post a job and start collecting quality applicants. All you have to do is tell us a bit about the position and choose a fingerprint* that most closely matches your needs. That's it.
*A fingerprint is a kind of an archetype for the type of person that would excel at the job.
Sokanu was built from the ground up from a team of leading career psychologists and psychometric assessment technitions. We have built the most predictive and sophisticated career test on the planet.
Every Sokanu user is measured on about 100 traits across 5 major dimensions: interests (e.g., interest in the arts), personality (e.g., leaderhship or independence), preferences (e.g., preference for analytical work) , needs (e.g., need for supportive supporvisors), and values (e.g., innovation). We use this data to develop a unique psychometric profile for every candidate which we can match against a catalog of career fingerprints. To promote equal employment goals, we monitor and publish how our test discriminates across age, gender, and ethnic groups.
Our assessment highlights how candidates match against a job as well as where they are defficient. This level of detail makes sokanu better at predicting on job performance than most traditional hiring methods.
*Measured as correlation with on-job performance.
