TalentUp Africa uses quizzes and games, all based on specific lessons, to identify candidate’s capabilities, skill sets, and personalities.
Through app-based games and quizzes, the selection process becomes quicker and more objective – time equals money, and selection of candidates now becomes efficient, fast and reliable.


Job board
  • We post your open positions on the TalentUpAfrica App job board. We will help you include whatever information you wish – company information, job requirements, salary range, start date, etc.
  • When candidates apply for a job posted on the TalentUpAfrica app, they are required to take quizzes. These quizzes are based on readings – so called lessons – which are also posted on the app. Students' results on these quizzes measure their skill sets within specific areas, uptake of knowledge, persistence, and analytical ability.
  • Based on your company’s hiring needs and based on what skills set and / or personality type you need, you can choose what lessons and quizzes a candidate should be required to do. You can also choose to include mandatory as well as recommended quizzes. Based on your wishes and needs, you can choose quizzes general to specific areas or include quizzes specially focused on your company.
  • Example of quizzes are:
    Specific Quizzes
    If you wish, you could also choose to include quizzes that are specific to your company and your hiring needs. Quizzes can be about your organization, a specific sector, or your company’s company values.
    You can make these quizzes yourself, or these quizzes can be developed by or together with the TalentUp Africa team.
    Few managers would say that teamwork is not important. In fact, most leaders spend a good deal of their time worrying about and trying to improve teamwork, as part of the overall drive toward greater efficiency and productivity. We therefore use the FIRO Theory to help candidates increase their self-awareness of how they prefer to interact with other people. Knowing candidates’ preferred interaction behaviour will have a direct impact on your and their success.
Enhanced Candidates’ Experience
  • Using quizzes as a selection tool makes the selection process more objective – a candidate is selected based on her or his personality type and skill sets, as proven by quizzes – as opposed to selected based on a recruiter reading a resume.
  • In addition, using app-based quizzes and games makes the feedback to applicants quicker and more accurate. Together, this enhances the candidate experience.
Company Process
  • Once you have identified a hiring need you send the TalentUp Africa team the requirements for the identified positions.
  • In a discussion with the TalentUp Africa team, you decide what quizzes a candidate is required and / or recommended to take. If you want to include specific quizzes, you can create them yourself or TalentUp Africa is happy to do them for you.
  • Once quizzes are decided, the TalentUp Africa team will post your position(s) at the TalentUp Africa App.
  • TalentUp Africa has ambassadors at several African universities, that make sure that the App, including your job positions, is visible to students at the university. For more information on how the TalentUp Africa team reach out to candidates, please refer to this link.
  • Candidates apply to your poison (s) through taking the quizzes as well as uploading a student profile, including the candidate’s name, contact information, university, major, gender, number of years of work experience, as well as date of birth.
  • After a few weeks, the TalentUp Africa team will forward a list of short listed candidates to you.
  • You can choose to complement this with a first round interview or with a deeper personality test.
