Unique recruitment drive! Love gaming? Aatmanirbhar App Innovation Award winner Hitwicket has job for you
Test-takers will be evaluated based on the progress they make in-game - very much akin to an Esports tournament - followed by an MCQ test.
Gearing up for this campus placement season, gaming startup Hitwicket has gone beyond traditional tests and interview processes to adopt a unique recruitment drive. Hitwicket is conducting an Esports Tournament to hire fresh recruits for its various job openings. Interested candidates can register until Friday, December 4th.
Candidates applying for various roles at Hitwicket shall be required to download and play Hitwicket’s latest mobile gaming app, ‘Hitwicket Superstars’, which bagged the Prime Minister’s AatmaNirbhar App Innovation Award earlier this year.
Test-takers will be evaluated based on the progress they make in-game - very much akin to an Esports tournament - followed by an MCQ test. Each applicant’s progress shall be tracked via a unique ID generated for every user who plays the game. The top 10 candidates in terms of in-game progress will be allowed to skip the written round for a personal interview, while the rest shall be evaluated based on a mix of in-game progress and written round scores.
Keeping in mind that candidates recruited shall primarily be tasked to work on ‘Hitwicket Superstars’ once they’re in, it’s imperative for a real connection between a prospective recruit and the product to be established.
To apply for roles at Hitwicket, download and competitively play Hitwicket Superstars; available for Android and iOS, and reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
Commenting on the unique recruitment drive, Kashyap Reddy, Co-founder, Hitwicket, said, "Our focus has been to hire for character, and train for skills. While objective tests are a fine indicator of convergent thinking, well-rounded recruitment steps look for a divergent thought-process essential for success in product-related roles . In a world of one-dimensional written tests that decide an applicant’s fate based on a number, holistic recruitment drives that flesh out the best in an individual is the way to go."
