How do you calculate Profile Quality for a candidate and how can I use it?

Meet our AI powered score that helps you discover more high potential profiles easily.

While reviewing candidates, many companies are looking for evidences of high quality such as:

  • Good impact in their past work experiences
  • Bagged scholarships
  • Won competitions or cracked tests
  • Filed patents
  • Worked at great companies or went to a good school
  • Contributed to open source
  • etc etc

Until now, as a recruiter, you had to do this manually.

Introducing CutShort Profile Quality Index (CPQI)

Leveraging the latest deep learning models, Cutshort now calculates the quality score of a candidate based on their resume.

  1. This score is relative to the peer group of the candidate. So, a software engineer with 3-6 year experience will be compared with the similar group.
  2. A higher CPQI means higher profile quality. A score like 95% means a very high level of profile, which normally gets hired at top companies.

How is this different from skill test scores or filters based on top companies or educational institutes?

CPQI is much more holistic than the usual factors that are more "keyword" based.

The score factors in all the variables such as work history and academic background and many, many different variables such as their work accomplishments, patents, competitive programming experience, social accolades and so on.

To illustrate, take a look at this profile:


This profile has a high CPQI although it does NOT mention any top companies or educational institutions. The high score is entirely based on the kind of work this person has done compared to their peer group.

How to use this score?

This score can be used in many ways.

You can sort applications by profile quality

If you get hundreds of applications, on Cutshort or even other places like career site, email, job portals etc, you can bring them all at one place and sort them by CPQI score. 

You can filter profiles based on profile quality

While doing any search or while viewing your job matches, you can also use profile quality as a filter to see the desired candidates easily.
