About eSkill

Founded in 2000 with the aim of providing easily customizable online tests, eSkill Corporation has developed into a global leader in employment-related skills testing.

eSkill provides organizations with a Web-based skills testing service. Rather than relying solely on interviews and personal impressions of an applicant’s resume, companies can use job-based skills tests to verify competencies before placing new hires into critical roles. Specifically, the eSkill application lets hiring and training managers configure tests from our extensive subject library to match their hiring and training needs, and reduce the risk of hiring failures and discrimination litigation.
