A fairer way to review CVs

Applied's CV Scoring Tool; simple, structured candidate screening

Cut through the noise by focusing on the skills needed for the job

Your typical CV screening is biased, boring and fails to accurately spot the best talent.

Names, faces, hobbies and other irrelevant information can negatively affect our judgment and even trigger biases.

100+ years of research is clear: standard CV reviews result in great talent being overlooked, bad hires being made and diversity staying stagnant.

However, if you're still working on transitioning away from CVs, hiring for a role beyond your expertise or looking to fill a critical senior role... sometimes CVs are necessary.

Use the CV Scoring Tool to make this process as objective and structured as possible.

By lazer-focusing on the things that are predictive of future job performance, you'll make better hires, with less bias.

An ethical, data-proofed process

Turn your candidate screening into a science...

Our Focus Questions are designed to hone in on exactly what you're looking for - so you can identify the best talent (with the data to prove it).

Looking for mission-driven candidates? Need someone who embodies your organisation's values? Choose from our library of questions or build your own to fit your specific needs.

For the most fair and accurate scores, you can assign team members to help you review CVs.

Invite your reviewers, score CVs and manage your candiate leaderboard to make data-driven shortlisting decisions, all without leaving the app.
