Compass Candidate Experience

An assessment solution with a low completion rate can severely impact your candidate pool, and can lead to qualified candidates dropping out of the hiring process.

Compass was built from the ground up with the candidate experience foremost in mind.

It features a streamlined assessment which avoids fallout due to test fatigue, an intuitive interface that helps reduce test anxiety and a mobile-first assessment featuring inclusive language to ensure traditionally marginalized groups feel welcomed.

The Compass candidate experience is:


Compass only measures the qualities and skills that matter most to you, rather than measuring every aspect of a candidate.  As a result, our assessments are significantly shorter than our competitors, which creates a better overall experience


Compass’ completely customizable invitation and assessment language ensures that traditionally marginalized groups feel welcomed and included, leading to less funnel abandonment, higher completion rates and better brand perception


You can’t get insights on the quality of your pipeline if you don’t have completions.  Compass was developed to ensure the highest completion rate possible, so you never have to decide between quality and quantity of candidates.

Compass Candidate Experience Features

It seems like common sense – a short assessment delivered on a mobile device with candidate-friendly features will likely have the highest completion rates – but for some reason the other players in the space just don’t seem to get it.

Compass was built to ensure the highest possible completion rate, with a candidate experience featuring a mobile-first design from invite through to questionnaire, candidate-friendly features and short assessments that measure only what matters most to you.

SMS Invitations

Get more candidates responding to your invitations

Research has shown that SMS open rates are as high as 98%, compared to just 20% for email. Compass offers the ability to send invitations and reminders via both SMS and email, ensuring your candidates see the invitation and get the opportunity to fill out the assessment.

Mobile-First Design

Ensure on-the-go candidates can take the assessment
