Evaluate the skill level of Linux pros
Posted on 17 September 2013.
TrueAbility launched AbilityScreen for Linux Professionals, a new way to evaluate the skill level of those who work within a Linux environment. Individuals now have a way to demonstrate their expertise and prove what they know, enabling companies to discover and hire proven Linux professionals.

“AbilityScreen enables employers to measure a technical candidate's ability within the technologies, platforms, vendor certifications and industry standards that their company uses today,” stated Luke Owen, co-founder and CEO.

“With AbilityScreen for Linux Professionals, we are helping to advance a new paradigm in recruiting cloud professionals, bringing efficiency to the recruiting process and providing a new approach to skills-based evaluation,” he added.

An AbilityScreen puts a technical candidate in a real world environment, as they would be on the job, to demonstrate what their current level of expertise is—from anywhere in the world. AbilityScreen can evaluate the candidate’s ability to troubleshoot, leverage resources, and adapt to learning new things on the fly.

Company hiring managers or recruiters can create and send a candidate an AbilityScreen with just a few clicks. When taking an AbilityScreen, candidates will be able to prove their skills by solving real issues in a live server environment, instead of the traditional technical interview process which typically includes technical trivia, multiple choice questions, or white-boarding exercises.
