HackerRank for Work generates Tests based on the selected job Role. For specific predefined Roles available in HackerRank, Recruiters can automatically generate Tests by including readymade Questions from the HackerRank Library. Alternatively, you can generate Tests for custom Roles by adding Questions from the HackerRank Library or your company library.
The HackerRank Library is a rich repository of readymade Questions categorised across multiple programming languages. The Library Questions are bundled together to help assess the Candidates’ skills relevant for each Role.
You must be logged in to your HackerRank for Work account.
