What is Autism?

Autism is a lifelong developmental condition that affects how people perceive the world and interact with others. Autistic individuals see, hear, and feel the world differently from other people. Autism is neither an illness nor a disease; it’s a spectrum condition. A person on the autism spectrum shares certain challenges with others on the spectrum but may express their neurodiversity in different ways.

Individuals on the autism spectrum possess unique outstanding skills that can greatly contribute to organizations in various industries.

With the right help and support, autistic individuals can live a more fulfilling life of their own choosing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, users can streamline the hiring process by enabling multiple rounds of pre-screening to generate a final list of the most qualified candidates. Bear in mind however, that having too many pre-screening questions can be cumbersome for candidates so you want to focus on incorporating the most critical questions.

Company users can set up a mix of short text, long text as well as multiple choice type questions in the pre-screening assessment.

X0I can integrate with Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS), CRM systems, other HR systems and the like. Once a candidate applies with a CV and answers the pre-screening questions, the information would then be stored on the respective systems that X0I is integrated with the Pass or Fail indication on the profile as well as the candidate details collected from X0I’s pre-screening interaction with the candidate. If companies use X0PA’s AI Recruiter Platform, the information collected would then seamlessly flow and be stored in the AI Recruiter Platform.

At present, X0I collects all information from the candidate through the chatbot interaction and stores that on the candidate profile on the integrated platform. This allows the users to then decide if they wish to take the candidate further through the application process. However, if companies desire to, a knock-out function would be able to configured prior.
