Why are competencies important?

Competencies are not skills, although they are similar. Skills are learned, while competencies are inherent qualities an individual possesses, combining skills, knowledge, and ability. 

Competencies are the soft skills or an employee’s behaviour that matter most for the job position and the future success of the candidate.  

They are used to evaluate candidates’ future effectiveness, capability, potential, and performance. 

IntRec uses competencies in our recruitment process to help companies recruit the right candidates. 

Why are Pre-employment test needed?


Pre-employment testing is a standardised method to test job candidates on their qualifications for a job during the recruitment process. These can range from tests for standard job skills and knowledge of math, languages, and software to emotional integrity and cognitive ability.

What is OCEAN Personality Trait?

What is the difference between recruitment and selection?

The words “recruitment” and “selection” describe two distinct phases of your hiring process. Recruitment refers to attracting, finding, and engaging candidates. Selection refers to evaluating candidates and ultimately hiring the best among them. 

IntRec is a preselection solution. The final selection or hiring decision is the responsibility of the recruiter or hiring manager.  

What is IntRec's mission?

Our purpose at IntRec is more than just connecting job seekers, recruiters, and employers. We are passionate about inspiring candidates to learn about themselves, to upskill, and to believe in themselves. Simply put, IntRec exists to help candidates fit into job roles and company cultures. 

Why is ICC Ideal Candidate Calculator important?

More than CV recruitment. The perfect job and culture fit depend on the candidate’s competencies, hard skills, personality, and mental aptitude. CV-based recruitment leads to high turnover and mis-hires. Some jobs, such as sales professional, are more dependent on the candidate’s competencies and personality than on their education or appearance.

CV-based recruitment is being phased out for a variety of reasons, including increased awareness of unconscious bias, the possibility of fraud, and the fact that achievements such as a degree or A levels are no longer as sought after as they once were.

ICC allows recruiters to understand which parts of the recruitment process are most important for finding the perfect candidate. 

Is IntRec AI video interview different from others?

IntRec’s AI video interview is fully automated and structured. All candidates take the same interview with the same questions. This eliminates unconscious bias. All answers are analysed using NLU and NLP. The candidates’ OCEAN personality traits and emotions are also analysed via the recorded interview.  

Why should company make a final interview with the Candidate?

The final selection process should be the decision of the recruiter or the hiring manager. IntRec will provide you with a list of candidates. Each candidate has a source determined by the ICC algorithm.

The recruiter or hiring manager in the final interview will be able to ask more questions about company or product knowledge, trustworthiness, and future expectations.

What is job fit?

Job fit is how well a candidate is suited for a job’s role. Hiring candidates who are the best fit for their positions is an excellent way for businesses to reduce turnover and missed opportunities.Employees who are well-suited for their positions will be happier and more productive, which can have a positive impact on company morale and ultimately benefit a company’s bottom line. 

There are factors that can influence job fit. Personality, competencies, and hard skills, for instance, can have a major effect on how happy or content an individual will be in a particular position.  

What is Company Culture Fit and why is it important?

People differ in their personalities, attitudes, and values, and an understanding of our individual personalities is profoundly important in maximising our happiness and productivity at work. 

Employees who fit well with their organization, co-workers, and supervisor: 

  • have greater job satisfaction.
  • identified more with their company.
  • are loyal to the company.
  • are more committed.
  • show superior job performance.

Mental and physical health are also linked to company culture fit. If the job fits the candidate’s personality, they’re less likely to exhibit signs of depression, anxiety, and mental health problems. 

Video Interview

Benefits of IntRec AI video interview


The logistics of attending in-person interviews can be tedious. Candidates are able to conduct far more video interviews than in-person interviews. Video interviews can be taken at any time. You can retake the question and select the perfect answers. This means less pressure and a more relaxed environment.


IntRec video interviews are completely automated. The questions are situation-based, and the answers are analysed and scored with our AI. Since there has been no human interference, all candidates have the same probability.


All candidates applying for the same job offer will have the same structured interview. IntRec AI will analyse the responses and score each interview based on the quality of the answer. This removes unconscious bias where one candidate is favoured over another.
Because pre-recorded interviews require candidates to follow a set of predetermined questions, they add a guaranteed level of consistency that conventional interview processes don’t have.
