This report from TestGorilla is based on research from +2700 employers and +2600 candidates surveyed.
My personal quote is included in this report:
“Companies are increasingly relying on online assessments when selecting candidates. Online assignments test an applicant’s skills and capabilities, so a traditional resume and cover letter are no longer needed. Companies make a first selection using an online assessment or referrals, and only then does a candidate get an interview. This may feel scary to job applicants, but it’s fair. It offers opportunities to less experienced people who are good at their jobs. A spelling mistake on your resume or a weak cover letter are of less importance. Juniors can beat seniors on knowledge and skills and thus move into a higher position.”
