Kira Talent product overview

What is Kira Talent?

Through on-demand, timed video and timed written assessments, Kira allows schools to save time, get a holistic view, and create a fair assessment experience for all applicants. Kira works with more than 300 programs worldwide to build applicant-first assessments that identify and select their best-fit students.

Key benefits of using Kira Talent

* Get a holistic view of applicants: See the complete picture of each applicant before you make a decision by combining your evaluation of applicants’ key traits with components of your existing supplemental application into an applicant’s Kira profile.

* Save time and work more efficiently: Eliminate time-consuming, repetitive tasks so you can focus on getting to know your applicants in a meaningful way.

* Make fair decisions: Give every applicant an equal opportunity by creating a structured assessment for every prospective student. Calibrate reviewers’ scores to identify differences in your team’s evaluation variance and identify areas for improvement to achieve greater consistency between admissions committee members.

* Collaborate with your team: Invite members of your team to collaboratively rate, share, and compare their top candidates. Combine the data from multiple perspectives to make a stronger decision on candidates.

* Get customized on-boarding and ongoing, dedicated service: Every Kira client has a Success Manager to ensure you get the most out of the platform. Your Success Manager will work with you to understand your cohort vision and the key traits tied to success in your program and build a customized assessment designed to identify the best fit applicants for your program.

* Make it your own: Brand the assessment experience from start to finish with your school’s colours, logos, and campus images. Record a welcome and closing video that get applicants excited about your program, and record your own video questions to introduce your admissions team.

* Support is personal: You can contact your Success Manager directly for responsive support for you and your team. We offer 24/7 applicant support to ensure your applicants have a great experience.

Pros
The responsiveness of the customer support is wonderful. They have made it very easy to reach out and they are quick to provide solutions or help.

CR

Claire R.

UI, as it is very clean and easy to use. The simplicity really works and makes it super easy for any person to get familiar with.

PJ

Parminder J.

The best thing I like about Kira, is the ease of use and the options to share the link, redo the test, allow mustiple free tests to the candidates, etc.

KS

Ketan S.

Cons
I think students are a little intimidated by the process and may be nervous. I have had some instances in which students read their responses to the question.

SJ

Susan J.

The video lags significantly when I hit play and its very confusing to know whether to pause, wait or refresh the page. This has happened over the year of using the software.

Sp

Sonia p.

Not grouped well within the platform and does not work well with some browsers. Issues with login for the first few weeks.

The Kira platform has allowed us to differentiate between candidates and determine fit much easier

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

I like the timed responses, and opportunity to 'bucket' questions into different categories. It allows us to easily determine a candidates comprehension and see how quickly and concisely they can formulate an answer. This tool also offers us the ability to see who our applicants are, and if they meet the English proficiency levels that we require for admission into the MBA.

Cons

I wish the video would automatically feed into our CRM system. At this stage the link is a manual process. Integration into Salesforce would be ideal

Vendor response

Hey Teresa! Thank you so much for the review! :) Looking forward to setting up a Kira/Salesforce integration with you in the near future! -Christian

A GREAT ADDITION TO THE INTERVIEW PROCESS; GARNERS ADDITIONAL IMPORTANT DETAILS FROM APPLICANTS

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Simple yet effective. Using Kira allowed us to get to know our clients in a way that made the screening process easier. The video interviewing features created a faster and easier way of assessing a client, it saved us and the client time. After the video interview, we can be certain which client is a great candidate for our firm. The process became smoother since we started using Kira.

Cons

It seems like applicants cannot be filtered demographically which is an important factor for applicant browsing, for us at least. It would really be great if this can be added to future updates since this may hasten our process more.

Vendor response

Hey there! Thank you so much for the positive review! :) I've taken your feedback and shared it with our development team for consideration. Please feel free to reach to your Client Success Manager if you'd like to discuss this in more detail! -Christian

Customer Service needs improvement

Reviewed 3 years ago

It is a useful tool for high volume recruitment organizations.

Pros

The platform is very easy to use and provides candidates with directions at every step.

Cons

The platform is not mobile enabled and it became an issue with a lot of candidates that willing to take the interview on their phones or tablets. There is less support for French candidates and I feel that they can improve a lot in customer service and providing French support to candidates. The business has taken a very different direction and is focusing more on University admissions.

Vendor response

Hey Madooree, Thank you so much for your review and feedback! :) We hope to one day bring back the mobile app! Thanks, Christian

Kira Talent have a great product and an excellent support team.

Reviewed 4 years ago

A whole extra layer of assessment. Consistency alongside our interview process - we have alumni interviewing for us, so this software allows us to take a look at every applicant.

Pros

The software is relatively easy to set up and use and provides huge assessment & selection value in the recruitment process.

Cons

It's not really a negative about the software, more about the idea of video assessment. We felt that it was important to have a team discussion on visual and language bias to ensure that we use the product carefully, respectfully and in context.

Good idea, not the best for the end user.

Reviewed 4 years ago

Was able to weed through a huge pool of potential candidates with more context than a resume.

Pros

It helps you gain better insight of your candidates with a face to face which makes it easier to weed out people earlier in the process.

Cons

The users complained about the usability and not being able to time things properly. It doesn't actually replicate an interview and the screening isn't the best at all from their perspective so you might actually lose out on the best candidate if you based it on this.

Vendor response

Hi Kareem - thanks for your feedback! We really appreciate it. You're right - we do recommend using Kira as a screening tool (like you are) instead of a replacement for a final, in-person interview. So glad you're seeing value and saving time with your current use case! - Melanie
