A smarter way to find your match

Using the criteria that you specify, we can help deliver your dream shortlist faster. The higher the candidate’s “match score”, the more likely you are to have found your next STAR employee.

A better way to screen candidates

Make a more informed decision about a candidate’s skills (even the so-called “soft” ones) based on the ratings, reputation, and feedback given by a knowledgeable third-party — the organizations that trained them.
