Larry Cermak, VP of research at The Block Research, showed us an interesting way to hire candidates. To explain, Cermak posted a hiring test for its six open positions. Along with this, he is also giving 1 ETH to the first candidate who scored above 90%.
However, no one has been able to reach the 90% mark yet. Currently, the maximum score is 86%. This is to note that, he is not paying out the ETH to people taking the test for fun. Also, the test is not open to the public. Given that, interested candidates have to apply first via the job portal. After which, the screening will take place and finally, the team will provide tests to the interested candidates.

The Block is a cryptanalysis firm that produces research and analysis articles on a daily basis. Currently, the company is hiring research analysts and data analysts. Majorly, the roles are based in New York City, although some are remote positions.
Considerably, it’s also a great marketing strategy by Cermak to post about the test and the winning prize as it certainly increases the reach of the job listings. As a result, the company will find a great fit for the positions.
