Technology always helps mankind to leap forward in the way it does things. These may be large scale changes like the advent of motorized transport or minute ones like the invention of the semiconductor circuit. Every field and area of modern human endeavours is dominated by technology. Very recently, the process of hiring has also been touched by a revolutionary new idea, the Hackathon.
Hackathons are sessions with specifically designed job-related challenges to test candidates and fill in crucial tech positions in an organization. This trend is on the rise in tech dominated Indian cities like Bangalore where the importance of resumes and CVs is being diminished day by day.
Ola cabs and real estate portal Stayzilla had their product management teams put in place by Venturesity, a start-up that creates challenges specific to a job description provided by the company. It plans to introduce an auction cum Hackathon model, where multiple organizations can offer jobs to candidates with good profiles. This is a welcome change as far as Indian hiring tendencies are considered which have been dominated by branded resumes for years rather than basing themselves on core skills.
