Automatic Assessment System Contributes in the Quickness of Conducting the Procedures of those Applying for Jobs




The Dean of Academic Staff and Employees Affairs, Prof. Farid bin Ali Al-Ghamdi, explained that they depended on modern technologies in assessing the answers of those applying for the available jobs.

He said, "Automatic assessment, which can assess more than 60 papers per minute, was used. This contributed greatly to the quickness of announcing the results of the tests for the available jobs in the University."

Prof. Farid bin Ali Al-Ghamdi asserted there were specialized committees that followed up the procedures of the employment competitions. The executive committee, which is headed by the Dean and is supported by a number of employees, shoulders the responsibility of following up the competition. He added that 15 sub committees were formed, according to the specializations of the previously announced jobs.

Applications for the available jobs pass through several stages. During the first stage, applicants for the jobs register their data at the employment e-portal. During the second stage, automatic sorting of the required specializations for each job is performed directly after the end of the application period.

The date of the written tests is determined during the third stage. The date is to be announced on the employment e-portal which sends text messages to the candidates, informing them about place, time and date of the tests. It also explains why some applicants were excluded, as they did not meet the conditions for the vacant jobs.

As for the next stage, it relates to conducting interviews with the candidates who achieved the highest scores in the written test. Moreover, successful candidates in the written tests will be informed about the date of interview through the employment e-portal.
