Logged-in Triplebyte users will see a "Likely to accept" estimate on every role in the Triplebyte Jobs Directory. We use machine learning and data from both sides of our marketplace to estimate a company's likely interest in your application for each distinct role. It combines:
- Your profile: how well your profile matches the role description
- Your experience: whether your years of experience match the company's preference for the role
- Company activity: both the company's current activity in relation to this role (their searches, which profiles they view and connect with when sourcing for this role, how actively they use Triplebyte, how often they engage with applications, and more) and their historical activity (for example, how your profile compares to other engineers the company has connected with in the past)
These three areas contribute to the overall "likely to accept" score you see on the job listing. Click on that score to see a more detailed breakdown for each estimation area.
This is a new feature, and we'll continue to refine our estimates as we get more data from more applications and more company actions.
What do the different overall likelihood numbers mean?
8-10: This company is likely to be highly interested in your application!
- A high number suggests a strong match in both personal (your profile) and impersonal (company behavior) data. Your profile likely matches the role description well and the company is searching for engineers like you and/or is actively hiring. We recommend focusing your efforts on roles with high "Likely to accept" estimates.
4-7: It’s not a perfect match, but there’s still a good possibility the company will be interested in your application.
- A middle-range number suggests either a medium level of matching between your profile and the role and a medium level of company activity for the role, or one or the other of these factors is particularly strong while the other is not. For example, your profile may match the role very well but the company isn't logging on regularly to engage with applications. Or, your profile may not match exceptionally well, but the company is responding quickly to other applications. In either case if you have the time and energy, it may make sense to apply.
1-3: It’s unlikely that your application will be accepted. This may be because your profile isn't a strong match, or the company isn't actively hiring for this role right now.
- A low number suggests little overlap between your profile and the role description, very low company activity on Triplebyte, or a combination of the two. If you're really excited about a role with a low "Likely to accept" estimate, you may want to take another assessment to showcase your skills in the areas required for the role.
How can I get higher "likely to accept" estimates?
Since some components of the estimate are outside your control (for example, the company’s hiring behavior), there may be no way to increase your “Likely to accept” estimate for a particular role. However, having a complete profile is how you can put your best foot forward and have the best chance of increasing interest in your applications. We recommend adding your relevant technologies, skills, and languages to your profile, making sure your resume and projects sections include details that highlight important experience, and taking assessments that correspond to the role requirements. Strong assessment scores and a detailed profile are both important contributors to company interest on Triplebyte, and thus this estimate.
