Who’s Taking Care of Grandma? – Healthcare Hiring Crisis Solved

Today we live in an age of radical transparency. In our interconnected world we have almost instant access to a quantity of information that was unimaginable even a few years ago.

Introducing Indeed Assessments: A New, Skills-based Screening Platform
You know the struggle. You spend hours staring at pages and pages of job applications and by the time you’re done, you’re lucky if you have a handful of qualified applicants to contact.
